HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SKATE TRUCKS? 

Skateboard trucks are those metal parts bolted to the board and where the wheels are mounted on. They are assential for skateboarding, and for performing tricks like to grind. 
In Fillow, all the trucks are sold in pairs (as you need two for your skateboard) and the prices are for both. In this section you can find a wide catalog of sizes and models.
In this text we explain everything you need to know to get it right in choosing the trucks for your skateboard. 
 

TRUCK PARTS

In skateboarding both trucks are the same, you can bolt any of them under the nose and the other one under the tail. Many skaters use two bolts of a different color to mark the front of the skate, and so see it easily from above. 
 
 

SKATEBOARD TRUCK SIZES

Width skate truck

Each brand prefers a different way to measure trucks’ width. Venture, Industrial, Destructo, Theeve, Tensor, Element, Enuff, and some others, prefer to measure the whole truck in inches. Independent prefers to use the width of the hanger (the part of the truck between the wheels) in millimeters. Thunder prefers the measurements of the complete trucks, but in millimeters. And Silver uses the width of the deck for which the trucks are ideal. 
Here you can see a truck size guide skateboard with the correspondences between some brands:
 
 
 
 

Height Skateboard truck

This measure is the distance between the base of the truck (part bolted to the deck) and the center of the axle (where the wheels go). It determines the separation between the wheels and the board, which also depends on the wheels’ size, and whether or not you use risers. Trucks can be classified into three different heights, but each manufacturer considers them to be high from a different measurement, so we use the most common: 
Low trucks: (height from 50to 53 mm) They have a lower center of gravity, and may be easier to maneuver with them for some tricks, but they limit the size of the wheel you can use, as if the are too big they could touch the deck and brake (‘wheelbite’), which can be very dangerous. 
These trucks are also recommended for people of short stature and weight, as children for example. 
Medium trucks: (‘mid’, from 52 to 56 mm) They are more versatile, so they are used in most of the complete skateboards.
High trucks: (55-60mm) Hight trucks mainly serve to use larger wheels, but another option is to use risers on your skateboard. They are pieces that should be placed between the base of the truck and the deck. Very tall people often find high trucks more comfortable and get higher tricks with them. 

Types and materials

A huge part of the total weight of a complete skateboard depends on the trucks you choose, as they are the heavier parts. To perform tricks, you will greatly appreciate lightness, and therefore there are different options of trucks, with various materials and shapes. However, if you just want your skate to move around, it’s not worth it that you invest heavily in the lightest trucks, because the weight will not be important. If this is your case, remember that all the trucks we have in our store have proven quality, and any pair of the appropriate size will serve you well.
Almost all trucks are made of aluminum (base and hanger) and steel in the axle. The lighter ones use titanium and magnesium alloys, which are light and strong materials. 

Trucks’ shapes are quite standard, but some are ‘hollow’, which means that the underside of the hanger have been reduced for lighter weight, and sometimes also the kingpin is hollow. 
 

BUSHINGS

Bushings are the rubber parts on the trucks. All trucks for sale at Fillow have bushings already assembled by the manufacturers. They usually use the most standard ones, but you can change them whenever you want for others. Their prices are very low, so you surely can allow yourself to try several without spending too much. In the bushing section you will find all the information about the types of bushings that exists and which ones you should choose for your preferences in skateboarding. 

HOW TO ADJUST YOUR SKATEBOARD TRUCKS?

Mounting or replacing trucks is very easy. You just have to pay attention to the position: the kingpin (central vertical screw) should face in, in both trucks (as in the image). Put the bolts from the top of the deck, one in each hole, and then put the nuts and adjust them, all with the same firmness, without over-tightening because they could press the wood too much. 
 
 
 
If you are going to use risers or shockpads (thin rubber pieces, like risers but designed to cushion impacts), the assembling is the same, just place them between the truck and the deck before you put the bolts. You may need longer screws in this case. Almost all brands offer 7/8” and 1” bolts. The first ones serve if you don’t use risers, and the second ones, if you do. 
Many screw packs have one or two bolts of a different color, so you can put them close to the nose or tail to know from the top position of the skateboard.

In Fillow you can buy your skate with fast shipping and free postage from €75, to offer the perfect gift or to skate yourself as soon as possible. 

BDSKATECO SKATEBOARD DECKS

To ensure the best possible quality, each BDSkate skate deck is manufactured with Canadian maple A+, pressed one at a time, so that the shape is perfect, and using a new special glue called Amerian Glue Formula, or with epoxy resin for the more resistant and light ones. Its stiff construction technology achieves great strength and more durable pop.

BDSKATECO WHEELS

The skate wheels from the brand are also in its quality line at a good price. They are made of urethane and with a treatment that makes them more resistant to wear, abrasion and flat spots. They are designed to offer enough grip, but at the same time allow a perfect skidding on curbs, reverts, etc.

BDSKATECO TRUCKS

Skate Trucks from BDSkate are all you need: indestructible, available in all the most common sizes, with a reasonable weight and an unbeatable price.

BDSKATECO GRIPTAPE

Thanks to BDskateco you can buy anti-bubble griptape for skate, it was one of the first brands to offer the no-bubbles system. The micro-perforations to which we have become so accustomed supposed a great advance, since before the common thing was that, when sticking the griptape, air bubbles were trapped between the deck and the grip, and they were very difficult to remove and could end up breaking.

BDSkate griptapes do not have that problem, they stick easily without any problem and offer a good lasting grip. You can find them with various designs, like the basic black grip, that is the cheapest, but better than others that have the same price, and there also other models with their logo or small designs.

BDSKATECO BEARINGS

BD also offers us cheap skate bearings, within reach of all budgets and with a great quality that has been tested by all the brand’s riders and thousands of skaters who have long been fans of the brand, like ourselves. Bdskate bearings are an excellent option to put on your skate.

The brand also offers skateboarding tools with everything you need to keep your skate well adjusted. We have them available in various sizes and colors so you can choose the one that you like the most.

Another accessory that we highlight is the BDskate bushing. They have a double core that makes it easier for your skate to return faster to its position after turning.
