For the ultimate in freeriding and all things longboarding, the fully compatible Attack RKP cast trucks and the Liquid CNC trucks have everything you need. The precision cast Attack hangers are perfectly compatible with CNC machined Liquid baseplates and vice versa. And just about every RKP hanger on the market will fit on the Attack baseplates.
Attack RKP (Reverse Kingpin) Trucks are the first trucks to come with multiple configurations to dial in your ride. Each truck comes complete with three (3) green Abec 11 Reflex urethane bushings (90a durometer) and a harder black ThikCup™. The standard configuration uses the short (.600”) bushing + ThikCup™ on the bottom (boardside) and the medium (.650”) bushing on top (roadside). Using the taller two bushings allows for a greater range of motion when turning, perfect for hard carving and high speed cornering. To restrict the amount of lean, put the shortest bushing on top, the medium bushing on the bottom, and the bushing spacer between the bottom cup washer and the baseplate. This setup is used for better sliding and drift control when freeriding and also helps you to avoid wheel-bite. Attack hangers and baseplates are fully compatible with the precision CNC machined hangers and baseplates from the Liquid Truck Company.

Skateboard trucks are the metal T-shaped pieces that mount onto the underside of the skateboard deck. When selecting skateboard trucks, the width of your truck axle should closely match the width of your skateboard deck. The truck size can be measured by the width of the hanger or the width of the axle. Every skateboard requires two trucks.
There are several parts that make up the skateboard trucks. The axle is the pin that runs through the trucks to which the wheels will attach. The hanger, usually made of metal, is the largest part of the skateboard truck that is somewhat triangular in shape. The axle runs through the hanger. The kingpin is the large bolt that holds these parts together and fits inside the skateboard bushings.
When purchasing, you will receive the two trucks necessary to assemble your skateboard. Skateboard trucks come in various sizes and colors, and Warehouse Skateboards carries a huge selection of brands to fit your personal preference.
Truck profile is the distance between the bottom of the skate deck and the hanger. In general, a mid-sized truck works well for most skateboarders, but high or low trucks may be preferred for different styles of skating.
LOWProvides extra stability for flip tricks, designed for small wheels (50-53mm wheel size recommended)
MIDGood all-around profile for street or park (53-56mm wheel size recommended)
HIGHGreat for cruising and carving, designed for large wheels (56mm+ wheel size recommended)
