They have a lot of faults in the construction, but when you do manage to ride them, you'll fall in love with them. I'm saying a lot of bad things about them just because I think it's important that the readers knows the trucks' faults in case they want to buy them. They are still my favorite trucks.

Where did you buy them?

What are their weaknesses?
-Unstable
-The baseplate is huge so it takes away from the purpose of reducing weight with the hollow hangers, also you can't unscrew the mounting nuts without scrapping the baseplate
-Flipping the hangers is awkward because of the design of the truck
-Does not work with Sideset wheels!!! The hanger's tips are widened which cause them to rub on the back of Sideset wheels, so these are horrible for all Flashback fans
-Not compatible with a lot of bushings
What are their strengths?
-Tall to prevent wheelbite
-SUPER TURNY, they can put Paris trucks to shame
-Very light, around the same weight as Paris, not as light as Randals though
-No need for new bushings because the stock are as lively as it gets
-Great freeriding truck
-Make sliding a breeze
-Reduce shock
-Aesthetically beautiful
What similar equipment have you ridden?
Bears are like the Double Barrel Version. Navs use 85a Double Cones and Bears use 83.5a barrels as stock.
Would you recommend them?
Yes

I cannot recommend these trucks (As well as the Sabre trucks) enough to anyone! These definitely bring a whole new life to those of you who love freeride, freestyle, and carving. I'd imagine these to be incredible dancer trucks too but I haven't tried them on my Bhangra yet.

Equipment Review

How long have you ridden them?

What Setup are you running them on?
Longboard Larry DK Penguin
Rayne Demonseed
Typical Discipline?
Freeride, Freestyle, Dance
How much did you pay for them?
$50
Where did you buy them?
L2 Boards
What are their weaknesses?
It'll take a little bit of adjustment to get used to the higher ride height since these trucks are taller than most typical trucks. This can be lowered by flipping the hangar, as the bushing seat is deeper on one side.
What are their strengths?
Super stable for slides, incredibly nimble and full of life! These come with SUPER high rebound double cone bushings. The Navigator bushings are taller than normal and are surprisingly stable for a double cone. These carve and rebound incredibly smoothly. Easily one of the best bushings I've ever ridden. Great for freeride and freestyle. If you have a drop-through board that is too low and bites a lot, then these trucks are for you! They are taller to give you extra clearance from the ground as well as from wheel biting.
Also, they look really sexy :)
What similar equipment have you ridden?
Sabre 190s, Bear 866s, Paris 180s, Gullwing Chargers, Caliber 50s.

Real impressive built quality for the price! light, strong, responsive, ...tall.
The only thing holding them back is a lack of options on stock bushings.
I would very highly recommend them to every one I know!

carving, commuting, light freeride

What are their weaknesses?
only one duro[85A] of stock bushing (however there are multiple colors),
the stock bushings do take a little time to break in,
the bushing seat design allows for few choices w/o a board-side washer.
a little tall, got used to it quickly.
What are their strengths?
amazing responsiveness, and strong feeling,
very lightweight! by themselves they weigh a little over 2 lbs total!
being cast from a CNC mold makes quite a difference in the quality!
