New royal trucks
« on: October 27, 2021, 04:06:16 AM »
Since they come out in 2 weeks figured there should be a place to specifically talk about them.....anyone rode a pair of the new ones yet? My homie who gets hooked up by them swears they are really good and the bushings in them are awesome and don't blow out. They officially come out 11nov, but im sure other people have already started seeing them pop up and skated them...if so how do they skate? Been wanting to try some new trucks lately since i've been on riding indys for so many years straight. Cant wait to start hearing if they are actually good or just another shitty truck...time will tell soon

The last iteration was 50 mm, I believe.
The design of the previous truck was good imo. I’ve had several sets (10-12 years ago, but I believe that was all the same stage, 4), and did some of my best skating on them.
Like all things crail, there has been times it been really easy to be cynical about the quality or their (crail’s) approach.
I’d try some. The height was great, true mid. The metal was softer and ground down quickly, which I like, in the streets. Turn well when set up loose.
This is all re: the older stuff. I brought it up not to confuse the issue, but mainly because most folks had very negative experience with royals (‘kid’ truck that could break on flatground tricks underneath beginners).
I’ll try about anything with trucks tho.

I'd love to hear Ben Degros' take on them and have Slap analyze the hell out of the wheelbase. If these are a Low 8.25 truck I'm down to try a pair, I ordered a pair of Mini Logo trucks just for the height reduction.

2020 was the year of Venture
2021 was the year of ACE and the AF1
2022 is the year of Royal

Dont forget Mike Mo, who was probably one of the best on flat before his injury and he rode royals

Ben hated the older version so doubt he will review them

That one is lost in the ether unfortunately, wonder if he hated them more than Krux.

I don’t think they could be worse than Krux, who has a pretty stacked team of skaters. I guess, if you have decent talent, you can get used to most anything.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Maybe once I burn my thunders out I’ll give these a shot assuming they’re not super tall… very curious/cautious about these.

When those dudes rode Royal everyone was still on small boards and lows. Turning wasn't a massive priority and they had similar dimensions and weight to lots of other things. Also, Royals looked a lot like Thunders and I recall Jerry skating our local park with Royal stickers on his deck on a set of Thunder Low Voltage...

Ben has signaled in several videos he’s over reviewing trucks and mostly just wants to skate Indys so I wouldn’t expect it. Kinda sucks though because I love his truck review videos, he’s the only skateboarding YouTuber who actually knows his shit at all

These read as new with the updated geo and weight reduction but the royal site still says 11/11.
