We love Paris Longboard Trucks because of the more divey, carvey, surfy longboard ride their geometry generates — which is PERFECT for cruising, dancing and making slow speeds incredibly fun.  That carving performance is noticeably different when compared to most RKP trucks (vs Bear Trucks or Caliber RKPs for example). 

If you haven't tried the new Paris v3's (see Nick Jones' full Paris v3 Longboard Truck review) due to their carving / cruising fame now is the perfect time to pick up a set, flip the hangers and take them for a fast freeride / downhill test drive.

A recent OS Team Discord chat found more than a few riders unaware that Paris Trucks actually do perform well at speed (somewhat uniquely) with the modified rake generated by flipped hangers — which Bear 852 (and 840) Longboard Trucks famously make use of.
