**Sold as pair of TWO trucks **
Ronin make one of the best downhill race trucks in the world. With my guessimation: has more podium wins than any other truck. It is simply the best design truck for going fast.
This is the 2021 Precision (CNC Cut) version which the pro racers use.
The 2021 Ronin Katana is the culmination of everything Ronin has learned, experienced and accomplished up to this point as a team. They keep pushing the boundaries and fine tuning the trucks to perfection, the Katana has several updates that help make tuning and racing that much easier for you. Like the previous generations of Ronin Precision Trucks, Katana’s are guaranteed not to break or bend.
There are 4 major changes to the truck, highlighting many months of testing, talking and podium results.
1. The hanger has been shortened with the smallest width now 114mm. Despite popular belief, narrower is not less stable. What you get is a quicker turning truck that allows you to better apply your weight on the wheels. The cleaner you are through the turn, the faster you go, and narrower setups provide this.
2. Due to the new narrow hanger width, Ronin redesigned the axles. Still partially hollowed like our kingpins, they’ve become smaller to better fit the pro lite weight cutouts, becoming lighter themselves. They also beefed up the shoulder for better assembly and clearance for big race wheels. All width options will now be adjustable; 114-124, 124-134mm, 134-144 and 144-154mm.
3. Ronin gave the pivot more surface area and a tighter fit to help control lean progression and steering. This increases resistance on the pivot tube so that your bushings are not doing so much of the work, allowing you to run a wider range of bushing durometres. It also keeps the pivot tube tighter as it breaks in, so your parts feel better and last longer.
4. An all new bushing seat. Instead of a normal flat bushing seat, the new Ronin bushing seat is dished. When correctly tightened the bushing compresses into the dish creating a preload. This load makes the truck snappier and more responsive, while also making them much more stable and solid when turning. This is because the bushing is completely touching the hanger for a longer amount of time when you are leaning. The walls of the bushing dish have also been brought in closer to add compression at the end of your lean, preventing wheel bite and over steer. The new dish has really made the Katana feel much cleaner and smoother through the range of the trucks action.
These trucks will be super limited in supply. Arriving in July.
