Choosing a longboard truck is an important decision because it will impact the overall feel of your ride. If you're considering the Paris V3 Longboard Trucks, we're breaking it down to help you choose. Watch our video below and scroll through for some additional tips.
If you're wondering "What Longboard Truck Should I Buy," here's our Paris V3 Review.
The Paris v3 is a reverse kingpin cast truck (RKP). What does that mean? The kingpin is the bolt that holds the bushing on. When the kingpin sits outward (bolt faces out), the trucks sit lower for more stability than a standard truck.
Compared with the V2s, the V3s feel much smoother thanks to the upgraded pivot cup and the upgraded bushings.
Pictured above, team rider, Nick Jones' personal favorite are the 50 degree option for freestyle. Grab the 43 degree for a more stable ride, great for downhill, anything else like that.
Here's where the V3s show off:
- If you’re looking to get carvy and have a lot of fun just turning back and forth.
- If you're looking for a truck with a surfing feeling
- If you're looking for a freestyle truck that feels smooth
Bottom line: if you're looking to cruise around town or pop a kickflip off a three stair, these trucks are for you.
Another huge improvement: They are much lighter. The base plate is significantly lighter, but just as strong as before. The hangar is even stronger than the previous model. Overall, you’re getting a much more durable and lighter truck, which comes in a lot of handy when it comes to freestyle tricks.
They’re super durable and super fun.
