A compact skateboard truck, the V Lights weigh even less than most trucks. Venture has been improved in its classic design with hollow terminals, hollow shafts and other shaving techniques, while maintaining their quality and durability. Venture is an American skcksboarding company. With their high performance design and reliable construction, these are precision trucks, made for literal melting. The main goal of Venture trucks is to create trucks in any color combination you would ever like. With riders from PJ Ladd and JB Gillet, to name just a few of the names that support Venture, their trucks show that the product they make is for a real skateboarder.
Forged base: The forged base plates are compressed molded, making them lighter, stronger and more impact resistant than cast base plates. Forging also eliminates the most common manufacturing defects and defects.
Hollow Axle & Kingpin: Having a hollow Axle greatly reduces the materials used on the axle so that your trucks are even lighter. The hollow kingpins / nuts further reduce weight while still maintaining their strength in this critical area.
How we select the most appropriate truck size for our skateboard?
Every skateboard truck brand represents size a little bit differently so it is easy to get puzzled. We measure trucks either by the width of the hanger or the width of the axle. The hanger is that metal part (triangular in shape) and is the largest part of your truck. The kingpin passes through the hanger and keeps all truck parts together.
In general we pick our truck when its axle has the same width as our deck.
Here below you may find the most common combinations of trucks and decks:
6"-7.25" truck axle - 6.5" to 7.25" skateboard decks
7.5" truck axle - 7.25 to 7.5" skateboard decks
7.75" truck axle - 7.5” to 8" skateboard decks
8.0" truck axle - 8” to 8.5" skateboard decks
8.5" truck axle - 8.5” to 9" skateboard decks
9.0" truck axle - 9” to 10” skateboard decks
10.0" truck axle - 10” and above skateboard decks
What truck profile height do we need?
Truck profile is the distance from the lowest deck point up to the hanger. The mid truck is the most commonly used. However low and high trucks are more appropriate for different skateboarding styles.
