Be it Mountainboard or Kiteboard, TRAMPA's 12mm Hollowed & Heat Treated, Steel Axle Skate Trucks are the recommended Truck choice for most kiteboard riders.12mm Skate Trucks need to be mounted at a 15º Angle in order to steer correctly & so you will see them fitted to the TRAMPA 15º decks as this is the perfect mounting angle for them.

Hollowing the steel axle reduces weight drastically & the heat treating process add's in extra strength. To retain as much strength as possible the axle is 1x long Axe  running the entire width of the hanger, it is positioned into the mould as the alloy is casted around it. The alloy body of the TRAMPA Hanger & the Embossed Baseplate are high quality Bead polished & lacquered to give the best protection against the harsh elements they will be used in.

The Pivot cup pushes into the pivot cup housing of the Baseplate & Black 98a Rubber Bushings sit within their housings cushioning the metal parts of the skate truck, protecting them from rubbing against each other & allowing the movement in the truck which converts to steering. These little parts get squashed & often suffering harsh environments they incur a lot of abuse & may fail, so in order to maintain max performance from your trucks you to need service/replace these parts over time.

Steel kingpin connects the Hanger to the Baseplate. This can be upgraded to Stainless Steel or TITANIUM using the attributes in your purchase. The Titanium kingpin is half the weight of steel & never rusts! You can also purchase a Marine Grade Stainless steel (MGST) Bolt kit at a discounted price with your truck purchase, these bolts will never rust on you! Accompanied by the 44mm axle spacer & 1mm shim washers to position the bearings in the exactly, a 3/8ths of an inch MGST Nylock Axle nut tightens perfectly on holding the wheel in the sweet spot on the axle.

Skate Trucks are the lightest ATB Truck option. Due to their lightness you could argue they're over all strength is compromised & arguably they are not as strong as other truck systems in the TRAMPA Truck options, so this trucks suggested use is said to be more suitable for lighter weight riders, i.e. small sized teenagers who require a lighter deck to steer & of course who will not push as many forces through the setup naturally. Larger riders should not use these trucks without being aware of this...

However its often the case that large sized kiteboard riders often choose to ride these trucks simply because they are so much lighter than any of the other trucks, the fact that they may bend over time or even break under seriously heavy usage (They often get dropped from great heights when kiteboarding always land awkwardly!!) bears no odds to them because they want the lightest of equipment & at only £70 a pair they are cheap to replace....

12mm Hollow axle Skate Truck - Powdercoated Red with Black Trims

TRAMPA's 12mm SKATE style HANGER BODY is made from FORGED ALUMINUM. Forging is used whenever Aluminum is required to perform to its maximum strength capability. During the forging process workers insert a 12mm STEEL AXLE into the mould. Fixing the Axle to the Hanger Body in this way gives the strongest possible connection between the two metals. To Save weight the Axle has been HOLLOWED & to gain extra strength the Axle has been HEAT TREATED. Heat Treating Steel makes it substantially stronger & more resistant to impacts. The Hanger is BEAD POLISHED to give a nice smooth surface & POWDER COATED RED for best metal protection and is given a coordinating BLACK TRAMPA LOGO to Pimp its appearance!

12mm SKATE TRUCKS are light weight. Saving weight will bring obvious benefits to freestyle Kiteboard riders aiming to go big, BUT Skate Trucks are not the strongest Trucks in the TRAMPA product range & we do not recommended they be used by large sized adult riders seeking huge freestyle moves as over time & especially after some hardcore misuse, these Hangers can get bent & ultimately become un-usable! Top riders accept that the Skate trucks are not the strongest, and are generally quite happy to purchase replacements from time to time as their price to replace and light weight-ness is un-matched by any other style of steering system. So, if your going on a big riding session or road trip to a far off location, may we suggest you carry a spare one of these to cover emergencies... There is nothing worse than getting all the way to a remote location & then a stupid mistake stops your fun...
