“ Brand: Venture / Type: Skateboard Trucks / Available: Various colours „
Without trucks , a skateboard is just a piece of wood. Trucks are essential to a skateboard. They connect the wheels to the board , they let you move and most importantly , they let you turn the skateboard. Venture have been making trucks ever since skateboarding was first invented and they are still one of the market leaders. Their trucks normally cost between £19.99 for the classic trucks in polished metal (like shown in the picture) each and £22.99 for the colored ones. I think that this is a good price considering how long the trucks will last. I have had mine for 2 years now and I skate board nearly every weekend. They have just received a few scratches here and there from grinding.
My trucks are polished metal as shown in the picture. The trucks turning is excellent. The best I have ever had. They have a smooth turn which is very responsive. (Although this can be changed by adjusting the kingpin). The metal is extremaly strong. I have landed many hard landing and I have not ever seen one crack. This makes them great value for money as many trucks I have had have cracked after just a few hard landings!
They are extremaly light as well. I have used many trucks over the years and I would have to say that these are the lightest that I have used and they come at a fraction of the price of the special ultra light trucks from fancy brands like Tensor.
Overall , the best pair of trucks I have ever had. They are light , strong, they look good and are great for turning and grinding. I would recommend them to people who just want to start out skate boarding all the way to people who have been skate boarding for years!
