The one thing I hate is how goddamn ugly Aces are. It's tough to make a truck ugly but they look anorexic, I wouldn't even trust myself ollieing a 9 with those things! Man, also lose the sizing system, 22-33-44-55 GTFO and use real measurements

The actual axle is thicker than pretty much every other truck on the market

They're made to look bent because they add more metal to the part that you'll most likely use up.

Yes, the curved shape of the hanger has been discussed many times. But I have not had a set of Aces that didn't bend within the first month of skating them.

Perfect excuse to try another set. They would be great if they didn't bend. Hopefully this fixes the problem.

Personally I never liked the way they grind. Seemed a bit 'chalky' to me, as if the metal is softer compared to Indys/ Thunder.
this. they feel like soft aluminum. and my axles bent, as well. probably not worth it to replace them...unless i could get a replacement pair and then swap them for indys at the shop

my Ace trucks are so squeaky that i'm considering going back to Indy, just because of that. 

i replaced my pivot cups before, after they blew out.  i've put wax in there and other shit.  it's to the point that it's bugging the shit out of me and i'm ready to get new trucks just because of it. 

i admit i'm highly sensitive to sounds.  and know that all trucks squeak to some degree, but these are absurd

any one else have this problem?

I've always had that problem, no matter what brand. I love my current set of ACE (44) but I think I will also go back to indy or simply because the turning feels a bit too sharp, wich is perfectly fine when riding a bowl, but it can be kinda tricky to not loose my balance when I'm doing manual tricks, and I do alot more of those than tranny.

Every set of Indys I've had had squeaked so bad. It's to the point where I automatically replace pivot cups with hard, or plastic, pivot cups from the get. I can't stand the squeaking.

can you recommend pivot cups that don't squeak?

I've been running hard Khiro's lately. If you go this route and order them, there are small and large sizes, you need smalls. I guess large are for longboard trucks, made that mistake.

Also the red shorty's pivot cups were pretty hard and did not squeak.

Seems they widened the V where the pivot portion meets the hanger.

You can see the differences pretty easily just doing this:

Old:


New:


As Xen said, look how much wider the "V" supporting the hanger is.

Looks like they got rid of the tapered hanger around the axles.

I ordered some 44's from socal skate shop on cyber Monday. Just looking at them and holding them in my hands makes me want to skate. No truck has ever done this to me. I skated a couple sets earlier this year and I was hooked. Never had problems with axle slip, bending, or pivot cups. I weight about 200lbs, always rode stock bushings and loose. The hanger just wore down a little faster than any other truck from what I can recall. The new redesign looks amazing and adds some heft it seems but I don't mind. As always...support your local skate shop but if they don't have them, socal and skate warehouse have all the new redesigns.

I think the redesign only applies to size 44 and up.
