There are a few eceptionaly durable trucks. The question is how much are you willing to spend. The ronin Truck might be a good option, since if you ever have trouble with the axle it is somewhat replacable. The truck is cast then bored trough for the axle.
Sick trucks would either be Buzzed V3 Mega Beefcakes or Bear kodiak. Both known for surviving almost anything.
A larger axle doesn’t necessarily make it stronger. I mean no offense to you, but I feel like a lot of sellers in this forum don’t have any engineering background and just advertise their stuff as the best ever until it breaks…
I am looking for trucks that have been abused by skaters over years and years and survived.
Now, that doesn’t mean you can’t convince me otherwise but you’ll have to make a much better argument than that. What material is your axle, why did you go with said material, is it a through axle or does it bolt onto the hangar, what material is your hangar, what is the geometry like and why. These are only a few of the questions you or any other seller on this forum would have to answer before I consider their trucks. If you would rather answer through pm as to not give anything away to competitors, I’ll respect your wishes to not spread said information and it would be kept between us regardless of whether or not I purchase your trucks
E: There is absolutely no info on said trucks on your website either…
Completely uneductaed in engineering. So this is a question I was courious for a long time.
From what is constantly talked about in our riding groupes is that the Ronin truck is so good for its price (aside from the support pin which allows for a bigger rake but still stable at higher speeds at 44 degrees ) is because the truck is cast, then bored trough and the axle put in it. Other cast trucks are cast around the axle whitch makes every truck by definition unprecise. Also given that the axle can “move” around it is more durable since it has leway during vibration and the material expanding with higher temperatures.
Was allways intrested if this is true. Its what we have been preached and since they simply give you the best bang for the buck All of us silently agreed with that statement.
Some trucks are die-cast, these tend to be brittle and will fail under heavy use or from extensive vibration from MBS wheels. Sand-cast is better…Sand-cast in a US foundry even better due to the tighter regs and QC.
If you are looking into Trampa trucks, then I would not say that they are all durable and can withstand abuse. I personally bent my vertigo trucks, equipped with twin drive and only after a few jumps. Thanks to Jens at E-Toxx, he sent me another hanger Infinity which is stronger. So in my experience the hollow Axles cannot withstand 1m jumps, I weigh 63kg.
Em, in my oldest pair of ronins, the axle moves around alot. Meaning changing wheels i was like wtf, where did the axle go, was all on the other side. If you want I can show you pics and take the axle out measure it for you.
