Slappy trucks (Mike Sinclair's new brand)

I haven't seen this posted yet, Sinclair's new truck brand. They're available in 8, 8.25, 8.5, 8.75 and 9 with regular and inverted kingpin available in all sizes.

I see a mixture between Indy+Ace+Thunder. Doesn't look bad but I don't think they're bringing something new.

I try not to be immediately dismissive of new brands, but as far as the truck market goes I genuinely don't know what we're missing that anyone else would provide.

My immediate reaction is to go to Alibaba and look to see if they match any.

I don't get it, are they IKP or no? That picture is clearly a standard kingpin. Maybe all sizes are available in both configurations?
Here’s one of the IKP model

I have exactly zero interest in trying these out.

I still want to see the front of the hanger though.

Well they don't look like ruckus. A tiny bit like industrials but not exactly. Got an independent looking hangar from the front and theeve above the kingpin. Baseplate is drilled like an Indy but square hole in middle like a thunder and theeve. Guess they're original

Trucks have never been better and with more options readily available to suit any type of rider.

I wish them well, but both Ace and Indy have very heavily captured the niche "slappy" market.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

I feel the name is not really doing it any favors. Feels like the name that would be on a bootleg Bobby Puleo or Koston board

Pretty clean looking truck. Eastern will carry them when they drop. I’m willing to try a set.
Looks like they have a pack of bushings that come with both “soft” and “hard” bushings? Might be an easy way to dial them in without having to buy a bunch of different bushings.

"I finally got the truck to where I really like it, the main thing I wanted in a truck was for it to have the best grind clearance I could get without messing up the turn that I wanted. I also wanted the truck to be strong, light and have a classic look and feel."

I like how there will be ace, the new retro indy that looks like ace, and this slappy truck that looks like ace.
Probably really hard to tell the difference in clips or at all

So this is a truck based on Sinclair's preferred turn and grind? Why should we trust what he wants in a skateboard truck - its been a minute since a Larry Perkins part dropped.

Well, seeing as how the last high-profile experiment with starting a truck company from scratch was flawless, I’m sure this will be a resounding success

Slappy trucks and not a single slappy clip on their insta.  ::)

My expectations are not high but who knows these days with even Royal putting out a truck that people really like.

The cheap in house brand trucks that go on Alien Workshop trucks are called Xenia. I'm sure they're shit but using that name got me stoked.

Mike is also deep in the industry which will probably help. Sure Oski’s very well known and a lot of people fuck with him, but I’m not sure he has the history with the industry or reach that mike does

Certainly looks like twice the grind clearance as on the Indies. How high are those, weight, I need specs.
why come?
