K5 has came! Upgraded version of it the previous K4 with larger and longer pivot mating to an made in house pivot cup, the truck has more stability and accuracy, and the hanger and baseplate have been designed such that they add stiffness and strength to the truck with their highly engineered angles, curves, and features.
This trucks are preferred by top riders in the world specially Kevin Reimer.
Aera trucks is probably the best longboard trucks ever made. World Champions use Aera or even just the average rider prefer Aera for precision control when riding downhill or even freeride.
The K5 is now narrower than our previous hangers and offers a host of more grip- oriented widths going from 164mm up to 184mm. Both the hanger and the baseplate have been optimized through load, material, and CAD testing to be stiffer, and more durable, and allow for more grip on the track. It truly is all in the details of the baseplate and hanger, where we’ve optimized the shape, hole structure, and angles to produce a truck that is almost 30% stiffer and more rigid than our previous models.
