Seismic G5 180mm / 45° Spring Truck - Solid Axle - (SINGLE)

Seismic G5 180mm / 45° Spring Truck - Solid Axle - (SINGLE) Zoom

Seismic G5 180mm / 45° Spring Truck - Solid Axle - (SINGLE)

This is the Seismic® G5™ 45-degree Spring Truck with a standard, solid axle. It features a 180mm faced Hanger with 45-degree Baseplate in stone finish. Please note that the price is for a single truck. Order two (2) trucks for one skateboard.
General setup suggestions:
For optimal traction, power, and control, we usually suggest a 45-degree truck at the nose and a 30-degree truck at the tail. At LBUK we stock the BLUE Spring version of this truck, which are classed as 'ultra light' and ideal for mounting at the front of your board for supreme traction and control. Alternatively you can use the 45 degree truck as a pair on a symmetrical (twin-tip) freeride decks

This is regarded by many as the original precision longboard truck and is now in its fith generation. It represents a major upgrade to Seismic's flagship high-rebound truck technology which has been centred around power, stability, manoeuvrability, and control since 1993. Seismic claim that no truck has more energy return, more precision, or better steering control - simply put, this is the world's best pumping truck.
The fith generation spring truck offers a more precise Spring System. A breakthrough Spring Cap design keeps Springs much straighter as they compress – resulting in a larger turning range and enhanced steering control
The G5 also offers easier maintenance and better Pivot Bolt fastening. The thicker, stronger Pivot Bolt is easier to remove and install, and it threads more securely into a larger Baseplate Locknut. Stronger, reusable Pivot Bolt Clip is easy to remove and install by hand, and it’s fastened to a rubber “leash” that prevents it from ever getting lost. Ingenious new multi-part Baseplate structure creates uniform thickness at mounting corners, so you need mounting bolts of only one length.

Owners of older generations of the Seismic spring truck should note that most components are backwards compatible with older models with the following exceptions: G5 Pivot Bolts, Baseplate Locknuts, and Pivot Bolt Clips will not fit older (G4) baseplates; and older (G4) Pivot Bolts, Baseplate Locknuts, and Pivot Bolt Clips will not fit G5 Baseplates.

    A quick word on mounting the G5
    Seismic G5 baseplates require full surface support, so they should not be top-mounted on decks with drop-through mounting holes unless stiff riser blocks are placed between the trucks and the deck. Because of their unique baseplate structure, G5 trucks will not fit through standard drop-through mounting holes, either. G5 trucks should also not be mounted on top of rubber or urethane shock pads. These amplify stresses on the baseplates, especially if the mounting bolts are over-tightened or tightened unevenly. Then relatively minor impacts can push the baseplates past their breaking point. Axle Height, Axle Offset, and Roll Centre
    Axle Height: 59.5mm / 2.34 inches from baseplate bottom to axle midpoint
    Axle Offset (Rake): 14.0mm / 0.55 inches
    Roll Center: 16.2mm / 0.64 inches above axle midpoint
    More Axle Offset (or Rake) pushes the Roll Centre higher (towards the deck), resulting in quicker lean response and better wheel traction. Less Axle Offset (or Rake) leaves the Roll Centre lower (near the axles), resulting in better lean control and stability.
