A truck with no web/wing/truss or axle breaks?!?!?!

This was my first thought and what I posted when these things debuted. They either don’t know what they’re doing structurally or else they thought that their particular casting process was strong enough to forego a truss. Either way, it seems like they made a mistake and honestly it’s kinda embarrassing that a bunch of armchair engineers could identify the problem immediately from a handful of photos.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Pretty sure that’s why they went that way…
It also makes the life span of the truck be a bit more unpredictable. With a normal truck once you hit the axle you know it’s probably better to retire them, with Lurpivs I guess you just keep going until they snap.

There’s just a lot of things on the trucks that made things more complicated than they need to be. Kinda trying to make too much all at once… I hope they step back on the next version and just focus on making a really solid truck. The geometry and reo-casting themselves are an good selling point already from my point of view.
And tbh when Lurpivs aren’t giving you any problems they feel awesome IMO.

My session was cut short by one of the hangers breaking. To be fair, they were fairly used but still bummed. They were good while they lasted, though, which was about 4 or 5 months.

That's fucking crazy. Honestly, kind of a safety hazard. Regular trucks will rarely just snap like that because of the axel. I'm glad you weren't doing something bigger/faster when they broke, you could've gotten seriously hurt. Skateboarding is dangerous enough, we don't need to make it more dangerous by having gear that fails in super dangerous ways.

I know 2 guys who had the same while cruising on flat on their Ventures. Warranty did cover them though. Must be fucking terrifying when it happens skating something big.

wait what? like straight up snapped in two? had they already grinded into the axel?

Nah, they were younger guys who almost exclusively skated drops and flip tricks on flat. For some reason most people aren't doing grinds in my local city, so the trucks were in near perfect condition. It probably got some pressure cracks from a big drop or something but they completely broke in half near the middle of the hanger. Venture did send them some replacements though.

Damn! I guess you can check "break a truck from skating" off the bucket list if you haven't done so prior to this.

Band aid solution to keep the kingpin from moving. Tighten it down so it holds down the kingpin. However it's super easy for this thing to loosen up and get lost.

For real, we don't have a lot of obstacles in my smallish city but everyone just goes to the same slab of flat to practice their flip tricks. Grinds are my bread and butter in a sesh so I'm always solo at the curbs and ledges. Sometimes they'll post instagram edits of them visiting parks in other cities and they'll be skating the flat in the corner or at most a bank to do a flip trick to fakie. Now that I'm thinking about it, their dedication is quite admirable.

That reminds me of when I used to hit the skatepark before work. There was another guy who’d show up at 7 as well and just do flat tricks in a corner for the hour I was there.
Every day.
Odd as hell and I though he couldn’t skate transition at all until about a year later I saw him skate the spine and he ripped. Still odd that he’d go there just for flat though.
Back on topic, saw Lurpivs are being sold at Tictacs now. Should be some interesting reviews soon.

That broken truck looks really sketchy, goddamn… other truck would probably have cracked but the axle helps holding it together. With Lurpivs is a clean snap that could end up really badly.

Well, I’ve noticed that Lurpiv has been really silent lately on social media, and now you pointed that the website is down. Makes me wonder if they are cooking something new or pulling the plug… I think the first makes the most sense since Ville Wester and Karsten Kleppan started riding the trucks not long ago. Maybe they’ll announce a new revised truck? Finally a skate team? Who knows…

I'd hope so. I just had a look at my "intact" Lurpiv (i.e. the one that did not break) and noticed it was hella bent. And the craziest stuff I ollie is a 3 stair so imagine what happens if you give one of these to a dude hucking 10 stairs.

why come?

Damn they really shouldn't have made it into skate shops, or be released at all. Are they sending you a new pair?

I didn't get a reply to my email. When the site was still up they used to be very responsive, not sure what's going on.

Either one of those trucks was destined for failure, nice work!

I'll stick to trucks with full axles.

Yeah, the axle design sounded neat but it's not strong enough.

Just put a regular axle in and even forgo ikp and this truck will look way better than bent/cracked.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Yeah, as flawed as they were, the grind was really dope and the turn was great too. I hope they come back with an improved version 2.0.

Version 2.0 will just be a much more expensive, cubist-influenced Ace with some sort of glaring design flaw. But it will still include the useless tin.

or else they thought that their particular casting process was strong enough to forego a truss

That really was the whole point of these trucks in my opinion. Designing a truck that is aesthetically completely different, but structurally as strong as everything else would be a sick art on wheels type of concept that skaters wished into existence. The problem is the material science is clearly lacking somewhere. Isn't it mildly worrying the rheocasting method they use is supposed to be aerospace grade? Maybe we should know which airplane is using those components? :o That clean hanger snap on a flatground pop shove is fucking gnarly, just makes me cringe at the thought of something like that happening in transition.

Man, there are no concerns with rheocasting parts in aerospace- oski didn’t design them. Well, that’s kinda mean, but what I’m trying to say is I’m fairly certain the aerospace r&d and testing process is a bit more stringent.
The lurpiv design aesthetic ain’t different, either-it’s de-evolution, atavism, retro - gresshun.  Trucks started as T hangers and the truss design evolved (or Tracker developed it and everybody copied it) to provide strength and minimize weight.

The aluminum may be a stronger type of aluminum for aerospace to and just the process is the same but aerospace using stronger materials. The shop I work at we do aerospace parts. We don’t cast them but i personally have worked on or had a hand in repairing some cast aerospace parts. Granted I don’t know the casting process but the parts being repaired are parts that wouldn’t cause a plane to crash.  Like some are internal door parts. Etc. so maybe the parts being cast for aerospace aren’t like needed to be crazy structural parts or use better material. I don’t know every part that goes on a plane either. I see only one piece of a much larger puzzle.

You're right that the T hanger was the start of it all, but those early T hangers were narrow and not designed for impacts. If Lurpiv 149s were durable and structurally sound thanks to modern technology and materials they would be the coolest truck out there. They probably still are to be honest. Just saw an Oski ad in some shop magazine, Lurpivs looked sick.

Seems like the easy fix is a normal axle but maybe sales tanked so hard he can't afford whatever that would cost to re took their molds and shit.
