If you are looking to make the most of a cruiser with carves for days, Paris V3s trucks will give you a ride as smooth as a baby's bottom...ok maybe not that smooth, but you get the point. The base plate of the Paris V3 will stick out a little, providing an added layer of protection similar to a noseguard, making sure your cruiser stays as fresh as a daisy.

Spring loaded S8 trucks create a unique carving and pumping experience that will feel familiar to surfers and snowboarders alike. If you want an even tighter turning experience, the S6 trucks will do the trick.

Cruiser Longboard Wheel Option: Radius SataSlides


Lets talk wheels: The Derringer’s tapered shape allows for big wheels with minimal risk of wheel bite, so you can cruise your street as smooth as a skipper on a glassy lake. The Sataslides are stone-ground wheels, meaning they are already broken in to get your sideways in no time flat.
