Carve (Dance or Commute) - 50˚ bases - 180 mm width - 88a Bushings

This is the truck that most riders should start with, and it can be used for ALL varieties of longboards. It is especially set-up to be easy to carve, steer around town and over city obstacles, or do some lightweight freeride or downhill. The higher angle 50˚ baseplate is very versatile.

The Aera RF-1 is a cold forged, machined axle and kingpin, ultra high-end production truck. It comes stocked with Hardcore Bushings, and is sold fully assembled. This truck is stronger than machined or CNC varieties with nearly the same level of precision so there are many advantages. The unique pivot and pivot cup allows the truck to steer deeper while also being more stable.

Cold forging is the process of stamping a hardened aluminum material with 30,000 lb of pressure - this nets a very precise part, and also one that is stronger since the material flows into its final shape.
