TRAMPA's MINI SPRING TRUCK range has been spawned from the highly respected TRAMPA Mountainboard Spring Truck steering systems. The MINI Spring Trucks offer the rider the same ability to be able to fully adjust & custom tune their set-up & steering to just about any setting you can imagine. It is possible to move the springs into the inside mounting position, making the steering super loose (which is perfect for incredibley sexy CARVY TURNS), to moving the springs "into the outside position", adding the TRAMPA DAMPA's and making the steering as STIFF as you could ever imagine, setting you up perfectly for the fastest of high speed runs wherever possible....
The MINI TRUCK is a radically designed masterpiece of steering brilliance and it is without doubt one of the sweetest little steering systems ever seen on a 4 wheeled board! Using uber strength FORGED Alloy for the HANGER, it is connected to an incredibly strong, "EXTRUDED & T6 HEAT TREATED Aluminum BASEPLATE" that has been given dual spring mounting position, generating the huge range of adjustable steering options that this truck has too offer.
NYLON BUSHINGS are inserted into the Kingpin holes of the Hanger & Baseplate, allowing a flush connection & to eliminate wear between the moving parts. The two parts are slid over each other and an 8mm KINGPIN is used to connect the 2 integral parts together allowing the steering to happen.. SPRING RETAINERS are pressed into the ends of the SPRINGS, & the springs loaded with the retainers are then squeezed into the mounting positions by hand. Both the Hanger & the baeplate are double spring position drilled giving the springs 2 positions for mounting. This double Spring position option gives the rider option to transform the performance of their board when setting up as locking them into the inner position will give the rider incredibly fast steering allowing super fast switch back carves in the tightest of spots, & slip the springs into the outer position (just 5 minute job at the most) & the steering transforms itself into a super stif mega fast down hill board, perfect for high speeds and perfect for fitting a new Electric TDT to the back of... :-)
The Springs are anchored in position from below the hanger using a flush fitting countersunk bolt & held in poition using a custom made bolt known as the SPRING ADJUSTER BOLT. The Spring Adjuster bolt screws trugh the baseplate forcing downwards pressure onto the Spring Retainer, the more you wind it in the more pressure you place into the spring. We call this pre-compression. Pre-compression pre-loads steering resistance into your trucks, taking up some of the slack or looseness in the steering, so if you like your steering loose, but with a little bit of resistance the spring can be screwed inwards forcing the spring downwards... The Pre-compression can be pre-set relevant to your weight, height riding ability & personal preference and it is easily adjusted on the fly by turning a 4mm Allen Key clockwise for more compression and anti-clockwise to remove compression in the spring. Additionally a TRAMPA DAMPA can be fitted to add extra resistance to the spring..... TRAMPA DAMPA's come in 5 different hardness so there is one for every type of rider! You can quickly adjust your board relevant to the conditions or terrain ahead by adjusting the pre-compression on the springs with the DAMPA's fitted... Over time your riding will improve & you will demand more pre-tension (performance) from your steering. Remember the DAMPA's do need some room to work, so don't over tighten your springs therefore squashing the Dampa's too much, because ultimately with too much pressure they will split, instead of over compressioning the DAMPA's change your DAMPA's to a slightly Harder Shore Resistance.
TRAMPA's Street Carve Board is the perfect all round street styled deck that is designed to tempt Snowboarders, Surfers, Skaters, Longboarders & of course Mountainboarders to cross over & ride the Black stuff.... Fitted with the new Electronic TDT they have become the hottest board on the street today!
The Mini INFINITY Hanger measures 13 Inches in total width & it fits to all TRAMPA Spring Truck Baseplates. Being narrower in the body & fitted with shorter Axles than regular ATB Hangers means the overall steering characteristics are completely different. The Hanger is drilled with 2 spring mounting positions & by changing the spring positions in the Truck & by adding/removing the DAMPA's into/from the springs means the Mini INFINITY Hanger has a broad range of controllable steering which can be used for many applications.
We are currently in the process or producing a full range of CARVE BOARDS which can also be used as a high Speed LONG BOARD. These Boards will all feature the Mini Hangers. Also planned is a "Super Lightweight Kids Spring Truck Mountainboard" which will bring massive riding advantages to the younger/smaller riders.
To ensure the best performance the hanger body is made from FORGED ALUMINUM and is one solid piece. The Mini INFINITY Hanger is CNC drilled & fitted with 9.525mm (10mm) SOLID STEEL Axles. The Axles have also been HEAT TREATED. Heat treating steel makes it substantially stronger & more resistant to impact. Using a CNC milling machine guarantee's to drill the Kingpin Holes precisely. Ensuring the Kingpin Holes are accurately placed guarantee's the best performance to the rider as well as making the truck easy to assembly & service. The Mini INFINITY Hanger is Silver Anodised for metal protection & colour coordinating good looks before the CNC work is carried out.
The INFINITY Baseplate will fit to all of the TRAMPA Spring Truck Hangers but is designed specifically to work in conjunction with the Mini Spring Hanger. It has a NEW Dual Spring Adjuster position! When the Springs are moved to the new inside position, the new position allows the rider to turn the board very very easily, making it perfect for fast carve riding on all kinds of terains. You can see the new & growing TRAMPA STREET CARVER range of products here...
The INFINITY Baseplate is, as its name suggests, designed & built to last forever! Aircraft grade 6061 Aluminum is forced through a Die to create our re-enforced extruded profile. Extruding Aluminum ensures consistent strength. Once Extruded the Baseplate is T6 Heat Treated. Heat treating extruded aluminum fuses the molecules together making it stronger than ever, enabling the INFINITY Baseplate to easily cope with the extreme stresses of all types of Boarding.
Once Heat Treated, the profile has its fixing holes punched.into position & then its bead Polished in preparaton to be Anodised Silver. Once the colour has dried, the Baseplate is then returned to the factory for the precision CNC Machine to accurately mill the Kingpin holes, giving the exacxt precision required for constructing the Truck.
This M8 x 80mm Nikel Plated Spring Truck Kingpin is used to connect the Hanger & the Baseplate on the TRAMPA INFINITY, VERTIGO or ULTIMATE Trucks. By using an 8mm Kingpin we have managed to save loads of weight whilst retaining all the strength necessary for the job by using high quality metals true to our word!
This M8 x 80mm Kingpin connects through the truck & into an M6 Nut. You'll need a 4mm Allen key to hold the Kingpin & a 10mm spanner to tighten/loosen your M6 Kingpin Nut.
This Kingpin pushes through plastic bushings before being placed into position in the Truck System. The Plastic bushings allow the metal parts (Hanger & Baseplate) to move inside each other without allowing the metal parts to touch or wear out. The plastic bushings will wear out over time and use and will eventually perish and need replacing. SO, make sure your Bushings are always in good working order after riding riding or when upgrading your Kingpin, it might be time to replace them too due to the unavoidable wear and tear of moving mountainboard parts.
This Kingpin lives up to TRAMPA's incredibly high quality standards, but it's always handy to have a spare just in case you do break one out on a ride.... Upgrade ur Kingpin by fitting the TRAMPA TITANIUM Kingpin which will save you loads of weight & fit into all of the TRAMPA Spring Trucks.
Introducing TRAMPA's M6 (6mm Thread) A4 Grade Marine Grade Stainless steel Nylock Nut. This Nylock Nut will fit to all M6 Bolts regardless of their length. This A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Nut will never rust on you! It is fitted with the world renowned NYLOCK System (Nylock is a nylon locking system where Nylon is pasted into the threads of the nut so that when the bolt is tightened into the nut the nylon grabs the thread of the bolt holding it locking it in the thread ensuring things do not vibrate loose or fall off when being ridden on rough terrain like that which a Mountain or Kiteboard endures. The NYLOCK System is fitted as standard to all TRAMPA Nuts.
This Nut is used to fix to the Regular shaped M6 Bolts that hold the TRUCKS to the DECK for the HOLYPRO Decks & also for the countersunk bolts connecting the L BRACKETS TO the DECKs. Use an 10mm spanner or SOCKET for a Ratchet Driver to tighten the Nut onto the Bolt. Always ensure your Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride!
TRAMPA's SPRINGS are coiled to precision & they fit into the space between the Baseplate & Hanger perfectly. This is for easy fitting & to be super responsive to the rider. Being made to measure they are very easy to fit & no clamps or tools are required to squeeze them into position! TRAMPA Springs are available in a selection of Powder-coated colours BUT this one has been Nickel plated for shiny good looks & of course for best surface coating protection.
Our Springs have been designed to work in perfect harmony with the TRAMPA DAMPA's & TRAMPA SPRING RETAINER providing maximum performance from the "Spring assembly" to the rider. The DAMPA's drop into the SPRING & the SPRING RETAINERS seal the ends of the spring, holding the DAMPA in exact position to be pre-loaded & squeezed into the truck. Using just a little bit of muscle, squeeze the loaded spring into the truck, then lock the spring into position using the Spring Adjuster & M5 x 12mm Countersunk Bolt. The TRAMPA spring Truck steering system is highly responsive & totally customisable by interchanging the DAMPA's to harder Urethane. Other Mountain Board brands springs will not fit the TRAMPA Trucks as they are a different in dimension.
TRAMPA's very own & very special re-enforced Spring Retainer has been specifically shaped to fit tightly inside the TRAMPA SPRINGS to snugly hold the TRAMPA DAMPA in the perfect position, instantly providing precision steering to the rider.
Constructed using the very latest in Injection Moulding machinery & original DuPont Materials, this part should never fail on you. The Spring Retainer houses an extra wide Marine Grade Stainless Steel Flanged Insert. The Extra Strength that the re-enforced flange creates, eliminates the need for a very awkwardly fitting washer that is still found in the MBS & Scrub boards today. Pimped - The Spring Retainer is TRAMPA Embossed around the rim of the retainer proving our quality, so don't get fooled or buy copies!
TRAMPA's very own & very special SPRING ADJUSTER is made using A4 MARINE GRADE STAINLESS STEEL & its guaranteed never to rust on you! The Spring adjuster is fitted to the trucks once the springs have been pushed into position. The spring adjuster pre-tensions the steering for the rider suitable to their requirements. We designed the Spring Adjuster to be slightly shorter in length than other brands, this is so that the Tip of the adjuster does not poke through the internal of the Spring Retainer & therefor does not interfere or hinder the performance of the DAMPA wich is located on the inside of the Retainer.
Should you need extra resisitance from your steering because you wish to ride fast, or if you need more steering because the course is twisty then you can very easily & quickly adjust the resistance in your steering by simply turning the spring adjster in the correct direction. To get the most out of your trucks on changeable terrain, simply ride with & use a 4mm Allen Key to make your adjustments. Winding the Spring Adjuster clockwise increases the steering resistance, which in turn restricts wobble at high speed.. Turning the Adjuster anti-clockwise loosens the steering allowing a more carvey ride..
DO NOT over tighten your Spring Adjuster, as this may crush your DAMPA.. If you need more steering resistance upgrade your DAMPA's & do not over tighten!!
TRAMPA's M5 x 12mm COUNTERSUNK Bolt is made from A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel & is used to secure the Spring into position on the Bottom of the Spring Truck hangers. The head of the Bolt is COUNTERSUNK. Countersinking the head of the bolt means that when it is screwed into position it sits flush & neat with the surface it is screwed into, preventing items standing proud eliminating the chance of getting hung-up should it get caught on anything....
Weighing just 1.8g each, they are very lightweight, look very sexy & are totally non corrosive. Using Marine Grade Stainless Steel, means these Bolts will never rust on you! They can cope with the most harsh of weather conditions & they laugh in the face of sandy/salty beaches or muddy freeride tracks, which do turn other manufacturers Nuts & Bolts into corrosive rusting wrecks! As well as being Non Corrosive all of the TRAMPA Bolts are diped in BLUE THREAD LOCKING PASTE to ensure an extra strong secure fix between the Nut & the Bolt.
You will need 2 of the M5 x 12mm Countersunk Bolts per Truck. You’ll also need a 3mm Allen key to tighten & loosen the bolts. Don’t forget to make sure all you’re Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride! Don’t forget to make sure all you’re Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride!
Precision made to ensure an accurate fit with no rattles, this Polished, 9.525mm x 13.52mm x 10mm long "precision made Aluminium spacer" fits onto the axles of the Carveboard Trucks & also in-between the Bearings of the Carveboard Wheels.

This tiny STEEL Shim Spacer is precision made to give maximum performance! It is used to hold the bearings in the perfect position & also to bridge tiny gaps on the axles, ensuring an accurate fit with NO rattles!
The Shim spacer slips onto the axle fitting either side of the Bearings when the wheel is being fitted onto 9.525mm Axles.
This tiny spacer positions the wheel perfectly on the axle, holding the Bearing in the best possible place to help achieve maximum spin rate for the wheel. Its little parts like these that suffer the most amount of abuse, especially when they are used in the harsh conditions that they are. Check from time to time they are in good order & possibly replacing them every now & then this good proactice will ensure your board stays in tip-top condition, always!
This very special Marine Grade Stainless steel Nyloc HALF NUT is custom made specially to fit the TRAMPA products. Half nut means - half as the size of a regular nut, so half the size = half the weight of a normal nut. By using Half nuts on the axles reduces the over all length of the axle & kingpin therefore reducing weight in the Truck also! A few Grams here & a few grams there soon adds up to quite alot & that makes all the difference to the total Truck & consequently deck weight, specially in critical areas of the deck such as the wheels area...
This very special 3/8ths of an inch Marine Grade Stainless steel Nylock Half Nut official factory measurements are W3/8ths - 24T - UNF. This Nut is used to hold the wheels onto the axles of the 9.525mm (3/8ths of Inch or otherwise referred to as 10mm) SKATE TRUCKS & also the Spring Trucks fitted with TITANIUM axles. This Nut is also used to hold the KINGPIN in position on all Skate Trucks. The Nut is fitted as standard with the world renowned NYLOC System. The Nyloc "locks the Nut onto the Bolt" eliminating vibration, keeping your nuts tighter for longer!
Use a 14mm or 9/16ths of an Inch spanner to tighten the Nut onto the Axle or Kingpin, do not overtighten the nut, allow the wheel to spin freely but not rattle & do not crush your bearings. Being Marine Grade Stainless Steel this nut will not rust you! Always ensure all ur nuts are tight before you ride!
