Seismic G5 180 mm 45 degree truck met massieve as
For optimal traction, power, and control, we usually suggest a 45-degree truck at the nose and a 30-degree truck at the tail, with stiffer springs at the tail than at the nose. Use two 45-degree trucks on symmetrical (twin-tip) freeride decks. Use stiffer springs if you’re heavier and/or taller than average, softer springs if you’re lighter and/or less tall.
Choice of Solid or Hollow axles, Springs in 4 strength options.
Springs for 45 Degree:
- Sky Blue: Extra-Light
- White: Max-Light
- Orange: Super-Light
- Red: Light
Stronger, lighter, and better-looking
Our crack team of engineers and industrial designers scoured every cubic millimeter of the previous (G4) model – looking for material to trim and spots to toughen, all while improving aesthetics.
More precise Spring System
Breakthrough Spring Cap design keeps Springs much straighter as they compress – resulting in a larger turning range and enhanced steering control.
Easier maintenance and better Pivot Bolt fastening
Thicker, stronger Pivot Bolt is easier to remove and install, and it threads more securely into a larger Baseplate Locknut. Stronger, reusable Pivot Bolt Clip is easy to remove and install by hand, and it’s fastened to a rubber “leash” that prevents it from ever getting lost. Ingenious new multi-part Baseplate structure creates uniform thickness at mounting corners, so you need mounting bolts of only one length.
Most components backwards compatible with older models
Exception: G5 Pivot Bolts, Baseplate Locknuts, and Pivot Bolt Clips will not fit older (G4) baseplates; and older (G4) Pivot Bolts, Baseplate Locknuts, and Pivot Bolt Clips will not fit G5 Baseplates.
Because of their unique baseplate structure, Seismic G5 spring trucks should not be top-mounted on decks with drop-through mounting holes. The baseplates require full surface support.
G5 spring trucks should also not be mounted on top of rubber or urethane shock pads. These amplify stresses on the baseplates, especially if the mounting bolts are over-tightened or tightened unevenly. Then relatively minor impacts can push the baseplates past their breaking point.
