Build your custom ride with skateboard trucks, NZ
Skateboarding trucks affect your stability and help avoid wheel bite - so choosing the right trucks is key. You can find trucks to match your style. For example, adjusting them will enable you to perform tighter turns, and softer bushings make easier turning possible.
You’ll need to take a few things into consideration to land on the right skateboarding trucks, such as width, height and wheels.
Craft and customise your skateboard further with more skateboard accessories, including skate decks and skate wheels for every style and budget.
When it comes to skate trucks, does size matter?
The trucks should always fit the width of your skateboard. It's important that they're not much wider than the deck to maintain a good centre of gravity. The wrong width can affect the board feel and limit your ability to do flip tricks.
In terms of height, your body height and the size of the wheels will play a part in deciding whether to go for low, high, or standard trucks. The general rule is that the taller the skater, the higher the trucks should be. Riding with a high truck means you’ll have to push down the tail when popping, and your deck acts as a lever to keep you balanced.
Generally, children go for shorter decks. Since there’s no industry standard for sizing, things can get even more confusing. Just ask about our Freeride Surf & Skate trucks for advice.
