They have finally arrived. The Paris Version three. Or v3 for short. The newest of the newest in longboarding world and the hype is real. A lot of talk going on about these trucks.
The new way for casting these trucks should make this version of the Paris Truck coompany’s newest addition to the team very distict from all that came before in the cast truck industry.
Cast trucks are different from precision in the way that it is fabricated. Where precision trucks get routed out by robots (very accurately), the cast trucks are made with molds, whre aluminium is poured in. After the truck shape is poured, there is a treatment called the T6 treatment. Which is a fancy way of saying they heat it, and cool it again to force the crystaline structure of the material into a more ‘solid’ piece. When done right, an increase in strength of the metal can be achieved up to 30%. Paris is advertising these babies with this information all over. They state that in 7 years of testing and development, they have perfected the craft.
Next to the improvements in casting, Paris has added some subtle changes to the design which ups it’s strength even more. The hanger shoulders are more broad, the barrel diameter is larger and also the baseplate support beam is reinforced.. All these changes make for a stronger truck. Which is what we all want.
In the longboard world the Paris trucks are known for their perfect response. If we had to put the feeling of these trucks into a few words we here at Timber Boards would use the following:
Swaying surfy subtle smoothness. And bounce.
The flow of these trucks will be amost as satisfying as seeing a very mean bully get flathand-slapped in the groin area.
That, or having a good long talk with him about the effects of bullying which makes him/her turn his life around. It is like a choose your own adventure with these babies.
For dance and freestyle longboarding, the Paris V3 trucks will never be a wrong choice. Choose a nice colour to fit the rest of your set-up.
