I had krux a few years ago and I liked them.. Except that I snapped the kingpins quicker than I'd like.

Had royals twices. After I broke the 2nd pair, I was done. Besides that cant remember them being bad.

I did like how light my titan ti-lite were. And I got them for $20. If I could buy em for cheap again I'd get em.

I dont remember my opinions of how trucks rode back then, didnt pay attention, notice, or care. I got used to everything. The only thing that I paid attention to was board width, not other items, or metrics. Things have changed in that regard.

This. Two more things I paid attention to: wheel size and pants size  ;D

I donít remember enough about the Royals to say much, but the stock bushings on Furyís were about as durable as a couple Starbursts left in the front seat of your car in July.

I skated mag light lows last year, really really liked the grind on them... easily the nicest grind i've had from a pair of trucks.

But on both pairs I had, the axles bent after a few weeks, and those hangers wear down really fast.

They aren't a bad truck QC issues aside though.

Tried Tensor twice. Was on a big Mullen kick when Enjoi was new, figured he made these trucks for a reason. Got some, set them up. Promptly leaned myself off the board just trying to turn. Never had a more frustrating session in my life. Fast forward a year or 2, friend of mine had some tensor on that Jamie Thomas skeleton board. Thought they looked cool, bought some. Same result, could not turn, horrible session. Back to indy. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me

Weirdest brands i bought were Cadillac and Orion in the mid 90's although orion had Koston on the team and i thought they were pretty decent. Also had some Tracker trucks with plastic baseplates that needed washers for the hardware nuts, otherwise the nuts drilled through the baseplates and it was impossible to take them off.

Krux are NHS so they are no different in quality than Indy's IMO and have better bushings from the jump. I ride them to this day and have no shame. (normal silver ones, all the kooky colours and graphics are a no-no)

They may be no different in build quality, but the turn quality is vastly different.

I had Krux on one of my boards for all of two sessions in a bowl. Both sessions I ended up pulling a different board out of the car to finish up. I then gave them away.

A buddy was building up a 9Ē board and I told him to get Ace. He went to the shop and the sold him Krux. This guy is not a hardcore skater. He used them 4 times and bitched about the turn every session. He was coming off Mini Logo 8.38 that DO turn. He then bought the ace and tossed the Krux.

Krux donít turn. Thatís fine for some people, but they are not the same as Indy just because they are both NHS

That's how I describe Krux to people who haven't tried them... Imagine Indy standards that don't turn. You lean on them and nothing happens, then when it starts to feel like they're going to do something they just flop over and laugh at you as you run into whatever you were trying to go around. The closest thing to an acceptable turn I got from them was with indy 92a conical bushings and even then I had to tic tac everywhere.

They do have a nice pop feel though, so I understand why a lot of YouTube types skate them.

Pop feel - and when they land a trick sketchy and off balance the board keeps going relatively straight.  A lot of those guys don't want their truck to turn.

For real, turning radius was never a thing. I just tick tack'd. But as and older skater that's the first thing I'm noticing about Ventures.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

If Krux don't turn how does Nora manage to have a job skating mostly transition? Honest question. I've never tried Krux.

I remember when I heard they were discontinuing a certain generation of Grind King I bought 3 sets the next day because they were my favorite trucks.

I tried Krux once out of curiosity and the were NOT my favorite trucks. I didn't like them at all.

Not a lick of any of them, actually.
Pretty much Thunder & Indy for the last 40 years, until I recently succumbed to the Ace hype & jumped aboard that plane/train/wagon by purchasing a couple sets of them there.
However...
I do find myself in possession of THIS, with absolutely zero recollection of how it came to me. Not sure if I should be embarrassed. Perhaps itís the result of a drunken evening of hot romance with a pair of Gring Kings that Iíve long since forgotten?
Anyway, I have this thing, and to my knowledge, Iíve never watched it.

Iíve done worse than simply skate Tensors

I reviewed them once for a magazine when they first came out

It rained the whole week leading up to deadline. Couldnít skate them. In the end, last day possible, I skated a semi waxed curb under 10ft of bridge for 5 mins before getting kicked out

I remember trying to skirt around the fact that I hadnít skated the trucks, and trying to write a rambling story which at some point tangentially mentioned the trucks.

But I failed to mention they were shit. Iíll go to my deathbed maintaining that this was because I hadnít skated them, but the fact remains- I had the opportunity to warn people and failed

Shortly after, I did get the chance to skate them, then almost immediately gave them to a friend. A week later they almost killed him. Karma is real.

Fully intrigued by this since Creepshow is a top 5 movie for me and because I had no idea that Kreper made a video, let alone had a team.
