Since 2009, Aera trucks has been creating the most competitive and successful downhill trucks ever made
The Downhill version of the RF-1 come with 176 mm hangers on 46 degree baseplates and Hardcore bushings
This set-up is ready to go for riding downhill at high speeds. It is sold with our hardest Hardcore bushings and is ready to go 60 mph+ or freeride the streets for heavier riders.
The Aera RF-1 is a cold forged, machined axle and kingpin, ultra high-end production truck. 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. It comes stocked with Hardcore Bushings, and is sold fully assembled.
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.
