Linkage-Tilt-Steering Skateboard Trucks | Unsuccessful On Kickstarter


#1

These trucks look very high tech, But sometimes you have to wonder if increasing the complexity of a design improves anything vs the common & much less complex truck designs currently on the market.

Also I doubt these trucks would work with normal skateboard wheels, that mostly have a square profile, limiting the appeal of the design for a regular skateboard rider who will often have a favorite wheel.



#2

Where are people getting these large aluminum wheels with rubber tires on them? Is anyone selling these kinds of wheels for regular boards? I mean I’m sure he designed those particular ones, but i’ve seen them elsewhere.


#3

Zboard also sells 90mm wheels with aluminum rims.


#4

I know the factory that makes them… I have considered it… I sort of like the look of them… but from my understanding the urethane is rubbish.


#5

I’d be more interested in vulcanized rubber (like car tires) over urethane on something like this. Possibly even with water channels in a tread pattern. I’m curious about the differences it would make in the ride and handling, as it would be somewhat of a middle ground between pneumatics and regular urethane wheels, and might even be a quieter ride.
