Polar P9 truck size
« on: May 13, 2024, 10:16:01 AM »
ANybody riding this shape currently? Just picked one up, thinking about switching trucks from Indy 149 to Ace AF1, just not sure if i should do the 55 or 60.

Board is 8.62 at the widest, probably 8.5 at the front bolts n quite tapered near the tail, maybe 8.25?

Thoughts?

Good shit, i'll rip it with the Indy 149's. Save the Ace's for a bigger set up in the future.

Thanks!

Do I have to skate the P1 - P8 to understand the P9?
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

No: although they are of a series, each is a stand alone shape w/ its own plots, characters, etc.

Also, regarding OP's question: have ridden AF1 55s on the P9 & they work/fit fine. My wheels poked out a touch at the back, due to the slight taper, but a good combo regardless.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

Another vote for 149 Indy, that's what I ride on that shape. Sidebar, I almost always ride Polar decks with wheel wells (including P9s) but also the 8.125/8.25 shape as my 'regular' board. Anyone know if they are phasing them out because they don't sell? There seem to be less and less...

I used 151 stage 4 Indys and Ace 55. Both worked perfectly fine.

I’d be fine with any 8.5 truck. Little bit of hot rod in the back makes it more stable on the back for grinds while the little bit of magic carpet on the front makes it turn nice.

55 or 60 would work, ditch the undies and get ACE
