Skateboard trucks are an essential part of the skateboard, because they are used to attach
the wheels to the skateboard deck. Each skateboard needs two trucks that are attached via special hardware to
the underside of the board. Skateboard trucks allow the rider to turn the board to the right or left depending
on their weight adjustment, and make it possible to perform grinds on rails, ledges, and ramp coping. Skateboard
trucks are typically made of aluminum alloy, and are designed to be very durable in order to withstand high
impact landings, yet lightweight to make ollies and technical flip tricks easier to perform.
Trucks come in a wide assortment of sizes, styles, and colors for many different types of skateboarding including vert
skating, street skating, longboarding, and cruising.
