If you want to build a longboard from scratch, you will need two T-shaped pieces called trucks. The longboard trucks you choose can provide you the stability, speed or smoothness you need. Understanding how your trucks work along with your other parts could improve your skating performance.
Your longboard trucks allow you to steer and consist also of the axle and the hanger that supports the axle. The bushing allow your board to pivot and turn, and the kingpin sits inside the bushing and holds the truck parts together. You also have the board or deck, wheels and bearings. Longboards oftentimes have larger wheels than small boards, so longboards can improve ride smoothness and boost speed.
Pick the one that provides you the riding capabilities that most interest you. Skaters often build skateboards with trucks that have these features:
You probably want to match your Longboard Truck width to your deck width. The closer the fit, that is what will allow you to align your trucks and wheels for improved riding performance. For carving and freestyle, a 9-inch truck width often is used. However, the 10-inch-wide truck is one you could use for stable riding but with less maneuverability depending on deck width.
