    I'm calling huge BS on their "bios" and the "science" behind their product. Looks gimmicky as heck, and ugly to boot. They even claim to delay speed wobbles to higher speeds. This screams, "RIP OFF" to me. $115? wtf

    So all of the rider and boards weight is dependent on that one kingpin nut. Kinda scary. But they may be on to something. I can see how you might get less wobbles because not all your weight is directly on top of the trucks.....Can anyone else kinda just "feel" and imagine how these ride and how they're pretty stable? fugly though.

    If it doesnt have a warranty, don't buy them. It would suck if the axles bent.

    I love how they spent two and a half minutes just showing you randon people, and only 20 sec of actual riding. and when they did ride, all they showed was some simple carves.

    And they scream "bite" to me, ether wheel or hanger, or maby even axle bite, but something would bite.

    These look so incredibly dumb I want some just to laugh at. I think they're about $100 more than I'd pay for a joke, though.

    I'd think the physics behind that are more dependent on the resistance the truck provides in preventing each wheel from moving forwards/backwards - it's easy at high speed because the forces striking the wheel are increased... and regular trucks don't do a bad job managing that.

    These trucks probably WOULD, because of the long, long arm that extends so far. Even if these were made of solid steel, I'd bet you could grab the wheel with your fist and move it back and forth - there has to be inherent flex in the actual arm, above and beyoned what's allowed by the bushings. And that can't be good for speed wobbles!

    Not to mention, there's really no reason why they couldn't use a solid axle that extends through both arms...
    Not only would that potentially improve stability, it would absolutely improve strength (triangulating), and would ensure the wheels remain in alignment with one another (another potential speed-wobbler).


    On top of it all - why? What's the benefit they are shooting for?
