The Polar Bear trucks are legit when it comes to a shreddable standard kingpin truck!
Bear has been working with team riders designing and engineering this regular geometry truck for two and a half years. We've been through 34 revisions along with 5 sets of moulds and prototypes. No part of the truck was overlooked.
The Baseplate: - Featuring 8 holes, so you're able to mount your truck right where you want it when riding a board with old school or new school hole pattern. - All mounting holes are accessible with a skate tool - Low Profile, only 2" from the surface to the center of the axle. Grizzlies are 2.6" - Added material to impact areas where more meat is needed, in front of the pivot cup and behind the bushing seat. - Removed material from the bottom of the base plate to reduce weight
The hanger: - Extensive computer modeling and physical tests were done to engineer the strongest hanger on the market. - Gussets were added on the underside of the hanger to ensure strength in all directions - Material removed from the front of the hanger to reduce weight - Shaped around the top bushing so that the washer doesn't hit the hanger and ensures tools are easy to use. - Hangers are faced so bearings run clean and square - Heat treatments provide a very strong finish, this means the hanger doesn't wear down quickly when grinding. - The Axle lengths are precise, designed not to stick out of your nuts, and preventing ground axles.
The Bushings: - Many bushing combos were tested, the stock bushings are an ideal middle ground. Great for carving and tight turning as well as stable for faster riding. - The bottom bushing is a standard 90a barrel 15mm tall. - The top bushing is a small cone, also 90a, 10.5mm tall. 85MM: Ideal for the mini cruiser that every skater needs in their quiver. The 85mm Polar Bears are strong, agile, and ready to grip the tightest turns. This is the truck you will find on our Dinghy 24 and Dinghy 26 boards.
105MM: Ideal for the mini cruiser that every skater needs in their quiver. The 105mm Polar Bears are strong, agile, and ready to grip the tightest turns. Bust out the mini and get ready rip it up.
130MM: Some of us still like to ride a board that is a bit on the narrower-side. And, of course, you need trucks to match it. If you step down in board size then it's time to step it up to the 130mm Polar Bears.
155MM: Designed with time-tested geometry and engineered with high quality materials, the 155m Polar Bears are going to be exactly what you need if you're going to hit the skatepark, slappy curb or just about any other obstacle.
155MM (Tall): For those of us who run a slightly bigger wheel, the 155T is what you need. Same quality materials and geometry as the 155 Polar Bear but just a bit more height added for that extra wheel clearance. Time to say goodbye to wheel-bite.
