    Default Various Truck Heights (Comparison Pictures Inside)

    I just traded some 215s for some Paris for my dancer (feels WAY better on tall tippy trucks) and I thought I'd take some pictures while they were off boards.

    Paris 180 50º vs. Indy no riser


    Paris 180 50º vs. Indy 1/8" riser


    Paris 180 50º vs. Indy 5/8" riser


    So it appears Indys are 5/8" lower than 50º trucks. Feel free to upload some more pictures if you guys got them.

    Bump because I see a lot of people asking about height differences.

    FWIW, Indys are rad on topmounts and 1/2" risers. It's still lower than 50° trucks too.

    This is an old and not-very-good picture of a Bennett 5.0 vs. an Indy 169. Bennett was about 3mm taller then the Indy. I'll upload some more later tonight.

    I think that picture would be better if the straight edge was balanced on the axles rather than the hangers.
