There is not a lot of techno splurb or science we need to share with you in this skateboard trucks buying guide, other than the following key points:
The majority of trucks are 5.0” in hanger width - which makes them good for most skateboard decks with widths of 7.25” – 8.0”.
Most trucks are mid height but you can also get low or high trucks.
Low trucks are often preferred for technical street skating and skaters that do lots of flip tricks. These are designed to be used with smaller wheels around 50 – 55 mm.
High trucks are often preferred for people that just like cruising and going fast so you can use nice big wheels 58mm +.
