TRAMPA Street Carve Decks are Deckcellence! :-)
TRAMPA's awesome range of STREET CARVER Decks performance is radically different, a quite sensational experience & are totally un-comparable to anything that's ever been created before! The entire TRAMPA STREET & URBAN CARVE product range instantly looks & performs completely different to regular Longboards.... Heads will turn i drooling envy as you loop passed open mouthed on-lookers.
Adding a TRAMPA Motor a TRAMPA 12s Battery box & the new TRAMPA VESC 6 to the CARVER DECK will quite simply transform your life! Un-believable performance up to 50kmph with un-real range of up too 70 Kilometer can easily be achieved. So far in our extensive tests, and Nottingham is a very hilly place, we have not found a hill these beasts cant get up, in fact its not a case of just getting up its a case of ripping back up the hill, being able to stay on the board under such power becomes a beautiful hillarious challenge!!
Created to simulate the carving sensations that are commonly enjoyed when Surfing, Snowboarding or Wakeboarding the design of the Carver Deck is based around the original dimensions of a 35º TRAMPA Mountainboard Deck. The Street Carver Deck, like its originator, is available as SOLID or HOLYPRO deck options & uses the same mould during its construction as all 35º decks, so this means the 'Creases' are in the same position but the Deck is 're-shaped & drilled close to the Crease', making the resulting Street Carver Deck performance to be naturally stiffer & so by using less materials to create the same stiffness, its considerably lighter than the regular Mountainboard Deck & of course by altering the mounting positions giving enough space for lots of steering range & using its own unique shape, the shorter deck generates a completely different performance characteristic to that of its originator...
In order for the Street Carver Deck to perform as its name suggests, the trimmed down 35º Deck needs to be fitted to a suitably sized steering system & so we created the MINI SPRING TRUCKS. Mini Spring Trucks are as their name suggests, smaller versions of the original ATB Spring Truck. The original Forged Alloy body of the ATB Hanger has been miniaturised to a more suitable size to compliment the deck size gaining the performance we were hoping for. To retain low weight the smaller Hanger has been complimented with shorter length & narrower thickness 9.525mm Axles which although shorter remain long enough to fit both sizes of TRAMPA Longboard wheels (83 & 90mm Longboard wheels) & also both of the amazing TRAMPA HYPA & TRAMPA SUPERSTAR wheels! The Mini Truck range is Amazing!
ATB Spring Trucks are time tested & proven as being the best steering system your money can buy. They sacrifice a little bit of extra weight over a regular Skate or Longboard style Truck but gain huge amounts of performance in return. Spring Trucks are far more robust, far more adjustable and far more tunable to your personal requirements than any alternative, plus in our minds far more safer, especially when riding at speed than regular Longboard Trucks. Let me explain...
Skate Trucks use a vertically mounted kingpin to hold the Hanger and Baseplate together. They need a mounting angle of roughly 15º to create their steering. 15º is quite a flimsy angle, mounting the kingpin in such a way with not a lot of Urethane to support the assembly will not give a huge amount of control over your steering & 15º is not much of an angle to steer against... Imagine balancing a ruler on on your pencil at school and then tilting it side to side, everything will be a bit wobbly as there is no resistance to keep it in position. So a vertically mounted kingpin (like that of a Longboard truck) will always have its limitations in performance, in particular at high speed when speed wobble can become a major issue... Speed Wobble is not a pleasure to be endured & is something that is most likely to happen to any rider at some stage especially on skate style trucks...
Spring Trucks use a horizontally mounted Kingpin to connect the Baseplate & Hanger together which is completely differently to a regular Longboard Truck. Using a horizontally mounted kingpin means the Spring Trucks need to be mounted at 35º to make the steering happen, hence the 35º deck range. We use high quality (food Industry) precision made Nylon Bushings that push into the metal parts allowing the kingpin to then push through all the parts, connecting them all together but still allowing easy movement without creating any wear on the metal parts.
For sure this loose movement needs to be controlled & so by inserting the special TRAMPA reinforced Stainless steel Spring Retainers into either end of a pair of Springs & then Squeezing the spring assembly into the space between the Hanger & Basepate, either side of the kingpin, the loose movement is balanced out & eliminated giving a firm feel to the movement. This firm feel can be increased by also Adding TRAMPA DAMPA's into the springs before inserting them into the Truck. The Springs are secured into position using the M5 x 12mm Marine Grade Stainless Steel Countersunk bolts into countersunk connecting positions inside the Hanger whilst a very special item known as the Marine Grade Stainless steel Spring Adjuster is screwed through the baseplate putting resistance onto the pre-loaded Spring.
Turning the spring adjuster clockwise to screw down Pre-loading tension in the springs
can be Adjusted & tuned to your exact personal preferences or tuned on the fly by turning the Spring Adjuster, plus for even more performance the Springs can be positioned in 2 places... Locating the Springs into the inside position makes the steering feel super loose & easy to steer giving the ultimate sensation in fast carvy steering, however lock the springs into the outside position & fitting the TRAMPA DAMPA's into the springs, will make the steering feel super tight & perfect for setting the board up for sliding or achieving the highest speeds possible...
The Springs are locked into position using Marine grade Stainless Steel Countersunk Bolts (for flush fitting) inserting into the threaded Spring Retainers through the underside of the Hanger & with the use of the very special part made by TRAMPA the Marine grade Stainless Steel Spring Adjuster, which Screws through the Top side of the Baseplate pre-compressing the Retainer in the Spring.
The entire Mini Spring Truck range is beautifully constructed from the finest materials, using the latest high tech machinery guaranteeing th highest quality possible is available in the complete INFINITY (Solid Steel Axles) VERTIGO (Hollow Steel Axle with CNC) & ULTIMATE (Titanium Axles with CNC) purchase options.
TRAMPA now offers a complete range of 83 & 90mm Longboard Wheel options that have all been made from the absolute best Super High Rebound - Top Quality Premium Urethane. TRAMPA's Longboard wheels use a Center-set bearing position, can be fitted to TRAMPA Slave Gears for Longboards & are colour coded to show the Urethane Hardness performance
BLUE = 74a Super-soft Urethane
BLACK = 76a Soft Urethane
WHITE = 78a Regular Urethane
RED = 81a Hard Urethane
The Street Carver can be pushed like any conventional Longboard but the deck comes into its own league when turning tightly on steep slope or when built in the addition of an electric motor. The Carving ability of the Street Carve enhances the switch back steering performance of that of a regular Longboard, giving the sensation like that of a surfer or on a huge wave...
