Shocal Sessions [Video]

Sho Ouellette escaped the biblical rains of Vancouver and got in some serious lean time on legendary Souther California mountain passes.

Some scientists believe that there is a chemical that is only released when you shred big open roads on sunny days. Downhill skaters experience serious anxiety and sometimes even depression and engage in self destructive behaviour when they cannot metabolize this chemical through shredding gnar. Sho Ouellette was looking pretty pale and sickly. He was clearly experiencing some serious skate withdrawals. All grinds and no mobbing make Sho a very dull boy. Thankfully companies like Paris Trucks understand the pain skaters endure in the winter, and took Sho out for some much needed bombing therapy. The mental health experts at Paris design some of the finest mood stabilizing equipment and Sho came back full of color and stoked on life! If you think you might be experiencing any of these symptoms, you should probably pop a few vitamin D pills and go shred!

If you are worried that you shredding might be hung up on bent hangers or you just can’t get deep enough into your turns to expel whatever melancholy is affecting you, it is most certainly worth taking a look at the various Paris Trucks available. We are particularly fond of the new 165mm Savants!

  • Paris – Savant – 165mm 43 Deg (Grey)

    $196.00CAD

    The Savant is the absolute perfect truck for fast downhill and freeride skating, able to handle the fastest and gnarliest terrain you can throw at them. The 180mm hanger is forged, not cast, for superior strength and tighter tolerances. The axles are dead straight, precision machined, and secured into the hanger with a patented axle lock system. A slightly tighter bushing seat provides the additional stability needed to take your skating to 60mph+, while still giving that deep and predictable Paris turn you expect from our trucks. The Savants also feature a race-inspired machined pivot, top hat bushing washers, machined speed rings, urethane pivot cups and slop-stoppers, and are available on both 43 and 50-degree baseplates.
