A new year a new ride? Well, Philippe from Yellowood asked me if I need some new fingerboard stuff. He sents me a big package with more stuff that I wanted. So I was able to setup a full new setup. Maybe you have seen it on Instagram? If not follow @fingerboardTV
Today we will take a look at one main part of the setup. The trucks. Good trucks are important for a good fingerboard and I like them even more, when the color fits to the board. This was the reason why I´ve picked the YTrucks X5 in chrome with blue baseplate. Check them out:
And one more:
The KEY FEATURES oft he new X5 trucks: Lightweight, extra resistent, AutoBlock V2, vitton bushings, low maintenance, advanced design and the trucks fits to all wheels.
Each set comes with:
– 2 Complete Trucks
– 4 AutoBlock V2 Nuts
– 8 Hexagonal Screws
– 1 Ykey II tool
– Ytrucks stickers
This is stage 5 of the YTrucks design. The new mold size is TRUE 34MM and it´s improved at the stress points from previous versions. Making the X5 the most advanced truck made to date. The stainless steel axle also has longer thread so you can use a larger variety of wheels without wobbles. These wider trucks have a lower center of gravity making your setup more stable on pop, grind and landing.
And it´s true. I´ve mounted the first set of X5 Ytrucks to my deck something about two years ago (wtf!? these 34mm are available for two years allready??!!) and I still feel the difference to smaller trucks. I never thought such two mm will give you something like a new fingerboard feeling. I really like how the trucks perform, grind and work and there was no problem to mount them to the deck. And if the color fits to your board you are in heaven. These trucks work just awesome! Never stepped back from the 34mm experience! As a special clue YTrucks now offer softer bushings (not shown on the pictures). These bushings are soft as f*ck and not the normal o-rings anymore. A nice little upgrade for these trucks. But just to let you now, most of the bushings on the market fit to YTrucks as well and perfom great. Don´t be afraid, just try something new.
