A great all round truck, with many new upgrades for 2010 to make them even better. Uses standard 8mm axles, heat treated for your pleasure. A great all round truck, whether your commuting, cruising, or going fast down hills. The 2010 Grizzly's are a completely gutted, redesigned version of the already great Bear Grizzly's. All the goods of the 2009's are still here, including the sweet-spot 181mm axle width, flipable hanger for cruising and bombing options, and a baseplate shape/hole pattern to mount to just about any board out there today including drop-through's. The new stronger and lighter 2010 design has been fine tuned to fit any standard 24mm diameter bushing on top or bottom. The baseplate and hanger turn at 52 degrees whatever setup, but the positive (standard) and negative (flipped) leverage axle placement helps you change your setup from general carving to a stable hill bombing machine in seconds. The new geometry and bushing seats will give you the best combination of lean, rebound, and response possible. The axles are heat treated, so the chance of you bending an axle is greatly reduced. Basically....you'll never want to ride another set of longboard trucks after you try these. -- Landyachtz.com

love the trucks! love sliding on them!! they trun good and good for carving.. You can flip the hanger and the truck would be lower to the ground and they would be more stable. The 5th generation bear 852 truck are a lot more smooth while turning or carving. You can tighten them more and you can turn more.
