Key Features of Paris V2 180mm Longboard Truck

Here are some of the features that make these trucks stand out from the competition.

Materials

Paris V2 trucks are appropriate for a variety of different settings and styles. They have a great build, which allows them to take very flexible turns, and curve all around the neighborhood.

The virgin aluminum that their body is made of gives them long-standing durability. They are made with the T6 heat treatment, which is a double heating technique that makes the construction of the trucks stronger.

Bushings

Bushings are the bond between the rider and the skateboard. The bushings work as the pivot to move the board in synchronization to the movements of the rider.

In other words, you need to have precise bushings to maintain your balance and control your pace on the board.
These trucks we have here are endowed with urethane bushing. This is a very high-quality feature that allows the board to respond to the rider with almost no delay.

There is a cone bushing on top and a barrel bushing on the bottom. These two work in harmony to provide stability and agility to the rider.

Base Plates

Pressure distribution is one of the first criteria that a skateboard must be able to handle. And base plates are the main components that are responsible for this. A base plate is the flat surface of the truck that attaches directly to the deck.

The Paris V2 trucks have a base plate that has 6 holes. This gives the tool universal mounting, as it can work with both traditional and modern mounting methods.

Kingpin

This is the bolt that holds everything together. So there is a lot of pressure on it. These are the first parts to get damaged if anything happens to your skateboard. And so, of course, they are replaceable.

Hanger

The Paris V2 truck comes with two hangers so that they offer a broad tilt angle to the rider. This hanger is the metal T that is the most noticeable aspect of the trucks. They are usually made of some alloy or another of aluminum. Now aluminum alloys are very durable, which is why they are used to make this part of the truck.

The hanger is always in direct contact with the rails and the curbs, and so they have to be very sturdy and robust to perform their task precisely.
