We recommend the Caliber II “Fifty Cal.” and “Forty-Four” Longboard Trucks for top mount longboards. With certain wheel choices, they may cause wheelbite on drop through decks.
The Caliber II Longboard Skateboard Truck is Caliber Truck Co.’s interpretation of what a cast reverse kingpin downhill truck should be. NOW UPDATED the Caliber II’ s now have a better bushing seat, increased strength, and are manufactured under tighter tolerances. Same great look and feel, except now even better for all DH/ Freeriding needs.
We’ve busted huge slides down hills and thrown ourselves off nicely sized launch ramps to make sure these trucks are sturdy, and they do not disappoint. If you’re into DH and freeride, the stock bushings on the 44 Cals should be just fine.
If you’re the carving and cruising type, check out Caliber’s “Fifty Cal” Downhill Longboard Truck. If you’re into DH and freeride, grab 2 packs of stiffer double barrel bushings from Venom or Riptide. If you’re the carving and cruising type, the stock bushings should be just fine.
