Gullwing Sidewinder Skate Trucks
Gullwing Sidewinders are great skateboard trucks for a number of reasons. Perhaps the biggest reason they are great, is because they are revolutionary in design. Now if your a skater who’s into doing technical tricks, they might not be the best Gullwing Sidewinder Skate Trucks for you. But if you like to go down big hills and carve them, you’ll feel right at home having these underneath your deck.
These trucks are the best trucks for long boards. Some people like to use a regular skateboard deck for a long board deck at the skate park. Not all skaters are about doing tricks, some just like to bomb big hills. If you fall into this current category, there’s a few reasons why the goal winning sidewinder skateboard Trucks will be right up your alley.
Gullwing Sidewinders skateboard trucks are really two trucks in one. They are sometimes referred to as a double truck for skateboards. And that is because it really is two trucks on top of one another. This is a patented design that is great for turning and gives the rider better control over the skateboard. You will be able to accomplish sharper turns at faster speeds with these skateboard trucks.
Doing tricks with these trucks, while not impossible, is more difficult than say using tensor trucks, or any of the normal skateboard trucks that people normally will use. Since they are technically higher off the ground than normal skateboard trucks, it may be difficult for some to get a good amount of pop in order to accomplish tricks. It’ll have to be up to the skater on whether or not the want the better control over the ability to do tricks. However you should know, that if you are able to do tricks on these trucks, you’ll probably be seen as even better than your average skater.
Are Gullwing Sidewinder trucks light?
Well they’re certainly not as light as your normal trucks, but they are surprisingly pretty light. Since there are literally two trucks in one, you’d expect them to weigh twice as much as normal skateboard trucks. But that is quite on the contrary, they have managed to shave off most the weight in the way they are designed so they will not weight you down as much as one might possibly think.
I have seen these trucks before but had never ridden Them. My friend recently got a new long board, and these came stock on the board. His was a Sector 9 longboard. We raced down a large hill in the park near our houses, and he was able to make a sharp turn that was impossible for me on a normal skateboard using normal everyday trucks. While he managed to make the turn sharply, I fell on my ass and into the grass. Now I’m been bombing kills since I was a young lad, so I knew it was trucks that had given in this advantage over my normal ones. I attempted the same hill, and was easily able to accomplish the turn at a faster speed.
Therefore if you’re looking for the best skateboard trucks for control of your skateboard, what can be better than the double stacked trucks? That’s why even though the Gullwing Sidewinders lose out in terms of pop and technical trick ability, they win as far as control goes for your skateboard trucks.
