Buyer's Guide

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.

What do the parts of a longboard do?

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.

How do I choose the right longboard truck?

Pick the one that provides you the riding capabilities that most interest you. Skaters often build skateboards with trucks that have these features:

  • Standard, inverted or hollow kingpins – You probably would use the standard kingpin truck for street and park skateboarding. The inverted kingpins, otherwise known as reverse kingpins, could help you turn and maneuver with ease in crowded spaces. The hollow kingpins weight less than other types, so they might increase your riding speed.
  • High or low baseplate angle – The 40-45-degree baseplate angle often provides stability, but the 50-52-degree angled baseplate can enable aggressive turns.
  • Freeriding or downhill – Stiff double barrel bushings potentially will improve downhill and freeriding performance.
  • Carving and cruising – Stock bushings typically provide support for people who like to cruise along at a steady speed.

Additional Longboard Truck Buying Tips

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.
