Caliber II MIDNIGHT Red Trucks 50 DegreeThe Caliber II MIDNIGHT Red 50 Degree longboard trucks have been redesigned with a stronger baseplate and hanger. The kingpin is made of grade 8 steel to ensure your trucks will stay in one piece, no matter how hard you push.
Updated inner/outer steps on bushing seat
The new Inner-Step provides an increased contact area with the bushing, resulting in dramatically higher rebound and overall responsiveness. The Inner-Step diameter has been adjusted to 25.4 mm to eliminate all slop.
The new Outer-Step is now a perfect circle with a 31.5mm diameter, creating a perfect no-slop-fit with oversized aftermarket bushing combinations.
Pivot with tighter tolerance and updated chamfer
By decreasing our pivot cup seat chamfer, we have increased pivot cup surface area contact with the baseplate. This creates a snugger fit for the pivot pin and prevents side-to-side play as the pivot cup breaks in.
Circular kingpin hole with updated diameter
With a diameter of 17.4mm, our kingpin hole has been updated to match the specs of our precision trucks. A circular hole provides a consistent and uniform lean, while also allowing proper clearance to avoid kingpin bite on the hanger.
Increased truck strength
With a new in-house heat treatment process at our manufacturing facility, we are able to strengthen our trucks by as much as 40%
Pressed-in grade 8 hex head kingpin
We have removed all slop and play by switching to a pressed-in kingpin. This provides maximum control and responsiveness through corners, but can still be hammered out and replaced with different length removable kingpins for extra levels of customization.
Thinner paints for tightened tolerances
Powder coats are very thick and can throw off tolerances and affect overall truck performance. We have switched over to a thinner paint system for optimal performance.
|The Fifty Caliber is stable at high speeds while also having an optimal angle for making strong carves. The hanger is not only reversible, but when flipped there is no rake to throw off the ride. The bushing seats are symmetrical with an optimal setup for any style of bushing. The pivot of the baseplate is self contained keeping it from having any weakness. The Blood Orange Bushings at an 89a durometer make for an ideal responsiveness.|
