Build to Grind
In the quest for high-performance skateboard trucks, you will surely stumble upon Ace Trucks online and offline. Your pals at the skate parks may be using them already particularly those who love to grind concrete and railings, and those who love fast and furious turns.
These are the qualities that make Ace skate trucks very popular and one of the most sought-after brands in the market today. With the ever-growing need for durability and longevity in skateboard hardware and accessories, these trucks have excellent construction and can withstand even the most hardcore skaters out there.
Technically, Ace skateboard trucks are lightweight and built with titanium axles and steel kingpins. They are engineered to meet the demands of skaters of all skill levels and varying needs.
The 'high trucks' are made for beginner and advanced skaters. They are, however, great for streets, ditches, and parks, and for cruising.
Physically, Ace trucks are cone shaped at the end of the hanger where the axle is visible. This feature allows precision fit to the inner race of the bearing and eliminates inner speed rings. For skaters looking for superb responsive setup, these trucks should be at the top of your options.
They are available in a variety of truck styles and colours, and the kingpins are built at various heights. They look simple and comparatively slim with controlled steadiness, with lower kingpin to ensure a smoother grind against curbs and railings, and thicker at the centre for maximum strength against shock. These skate trucks are made for easy turns and glides, and lengthy sessions on any terrain.
