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.

Element Skateboards History

Element Skateboards was created in 1992 by Johnny Schilereff. Its first name was ‘Underworld Element’, and after so much well done work, it has become the most famous skate brand in the world. Although its philosophy remains totally focused on the world of skateboarding, the Element clothing has also great success and can be seen in many cities. Element promotes positive values, about change and environmental care. The brand has one of the best teams of riders, Nyjah Huston for example is one of them. 

Element’s objective is simple: to be the best, in the most ethical, respectable and honest way possible. From the beginning they have been able to maintain those important values that make them who they are. They consider Element Skate as a family, not a business, all united to grow together and being very aware of the respect and importance of the environment.
