Gullwing Shadow trucks feature the traditional kingpin style and are best used for skating parks or cruising. The knurled kingpin stays securely in place while riding and the straight pivot provides even turning geometry. The 356 Aluminum and Chromoly axle have become the ‘gold-standard’ of the truck industry and have proven themselves through years of use and abuse. This heat-treated aluminum cannot be die-cast, and is responsible for the strength and familiar grind characteristics you should expect from a quality truck. Shadow trucks also feature extra aluminum on the grinding surface, which provides extended life.
