wow are these trucks excellent. I upgraded from some gullwing chargers and these are 300x better no joke. They are great for sliding and usually very stable on the downhill. They turn very well with the stock bushings, even compared to my sidewinders. If you are looking to use them for serious downhill, I recommend getting some different bushings as well as flipping the hangar. Be sure that you have some lube to put on the totally dry axles as well. #gullwingistheenemy
i like the solid feel from the tight tolerances, the amount of turn and fast return of the stock bushings and the middle weight of the truck. I cruise, carve, slide, freeride (and a little freestyle), these trucks are great for all of these things, especially if you like a heavier-freestyle/light-freeride deck. The trucks are beefier than paris 180s providing a bit more control when free styling but not nearly as heavy as a hefty caliber. I've owned this truck for about a year the aluminum hanger is starting to bend from the freestyle landings but this truck is worth replacing.
I prefer a loose setup: these trucks turn well but not as much as a paris.. My problem could easily be fixed with a set of cone bushings; bear provides a white 82.5a bushing that id like to purchase with my next set of green 852s.
I have had these trucks for about three months now, and have been very satisfied with them. They accept my movements properly and are a bit more sensitive, as you would expect, as they are a 52* truck. I personally use these trucks for sliding and freeride, for which they are very helpful in both controlling your slide and breaking the wheels free. One thing that I would recommend to everyone that purchases these is that you buy different bushings for the truck. The bushings that come with are lackluster and meant to be a one size fits all type thing. Motion Board Shop has a nice feature called 'Bushing Selector' which will lead you to a perfect custom choice that will enhance these trucks immensely and make these the best trucks out there (besides precisions of course). BTW, don't buy the bushings from Motion Board Shop, just select the ones you want from there and then purchase them from TLS!
Great truck!! Only got like 20 min of ride time in but its pretty much what I expected. Also the free shipping was super fast, it came all the way to Maryland in 2 days.
