We’ve kept the production quality high as well. The trucks are cast using a special casting formula to maximize strength. We’ve found that a 181mm axle width along with a 52 degree baseplate is optimum for all round longboarding. If you’re looking for versatility, we’ve made it so that you can easily change the angle of the truck by flipping the hanger. Doing so with the 52 degree baseplate turns the truck from a general carving truck, to a more downhill oriented truck.
Specialized Casting Formula – Completely new metal formula, the most reliable aluminum alloy on the market. The alloy has been specifically mixed for our trucks and not pulled from some generic melted down block. Each batch is pre tested and approved at our factory before shipping out.
Widened rear baseplate legs – Added thickness to eliminate any possible baseplate warping and to help withstand any heavy impact.
Effective bushing Seat – Fully-wrapped leaning system with bushing base lock-in. This allows you to get extra lean and no turning restrictions. It is compatible with most bushings out there.
Hole Pattern: New School & Old School
The unique feature of the Zealous lubricant is how the nanoceramic compound fills in deformations or asperities in the bearing. These deformations cause friction and heat around them which hardens the nano-ceramic compound to that specific area. This micro coating is 5 times the hardness of the host alloy and has a molecular bond with the host metal, filling in all the asperities and eliminating friction over time.
• Precision 8mm axle holes
• .409″ built in spacers
• 1mm built in speedrings
• Green rubber seals to keep dirt and debris on the outside of the bearing.
• Lubed with Archoil Nanoceramic Grease
The coefficient of friction is the lowest in the field of Tribology at 0.003% creating a near frictionless surface. Mainly because the nanoceramic compound eliminates all asperities.
Extremely low water washout
Corrosion on the inside of the bearing is eliminated.
Yeeeew – Amazing!!!!
This high speed freeride longboard skateboard wheel features a larger than typical core that supports the urethane and helps to increase the roll speed. These two aspects combined result in a wheel with consistent slides, and a quicker acceleration coming out of slides.
The 72mm RAD Release come pre-broken-in to get you shredding immediately. Pick up a set of these rad wheels (pun intended) if you are looking for a freeride wheel that is quicker and smoother than the rest.
