According to this blog, dated Nov 2020, the new Ace trucks will be called AF 1s and will be out in April 2021. They also say, the 'Classic' line will stay in production...

The question is who is going to DM Joey T, Shrewgy or Ace like a man??

I commented on an Ace post from January 19 asking when the new ones are going to drop and they just replied with the crystal ball emoji.

Which will I get first: the new Aces, or a covid vaccine?

I hope so. That's what we've been hearing.

Aren't Ace and Thunder 149 the same height at the axles?

Or .5 off ?

I keep seeing how Ace are bigger but they aren't really

I have them on a little cruiser with some 60mm OJ hot juices and 1/4in risers. Also put coned bottom bushings in to make it super carvey and it's probably the most fun board I've ever pushed around on

Ace and thunder bottom bushings are the same height (14mm). Ace top bushings are 12mm. Thunders are 10mm. So, maybe a tad wonky??

I just use a set of ace low bushings in my thunders and they work wonderfully. Really good turn but reduced wheelbite and you can run both washers

Ace Classic Bushing Set
Top 12mm tall | 91a hardness
Bottom 14mm tall | 86a hardness

Ace Low Bushing Set
Top 10mm tall | 91a hardness
Bottom 12mm tall | 86a hardness

thunder top 10mm / bottom 14 mm correct? so you need ace lo top and ace classic bottom if that info is correct

Exactly. Makes Indy's turn almost as good as ACE. Never tried it with thunders, though.

Does anyone know what the expected changes for the new aces are? Heard something about changing axle widths or hollow king pins, is it all speculation right now?

wait... if they're keeping the classics and the rumor of the size shift is true, are they gonna have a separate size chart?

Chatter Iíve picked up over the wire indicates a forged/hollow configuration for the AF-1 line. No verifiable intel on new widths at this time.

Here's the Ace baseplate with a Diamond 1/8" riser:




Sorry to chime in on this so late but catching up on 90+ pages of Ace chat takes a good few minutes ;)

Surely adding risers to Ace trucks and having such a short wheel base would make the timing of the ollie feel super delayed?

Does anyone else agree with Ben Degros that Ace trucks fall out of the crooked grind pinch?

I suck at crooked grinds. But I will say I felt a better pinch on venture  than ace. I think I had them better on thunder thsn ace too but I havenít skated thunders in a few years. I enjoy aces. But curious to see if others have this problem or is it me blaming equipment. I do love my aces though

Ace's cause your crooks to be more crooked than on other trucks. The shorter wheelbase makes more of your nose touch whatever you're grinding too which changes the feel of it for sure.
.....Nah

Apologise if anyone has mentioned this already...

One of the homies that skates for Ace just mentioned a few days ago that they'll be releasing their own bushings fairly soon. Two choices apparently: one of which will have the top bushing cut to half the normal size.

My guess is they'll be releasing them along with the new forged truck.

I wonder if they are doing just low heads though, as per the Indy ones that I bought a few dozen of and swear by, same height bottom, just half the height in the top, so you start with the truck still sitting at the right angle and height from the bottom bushings, but the lower head means you can have the nut on nicely and still have the super loose feel, or as I have done, tighten them down a bit more and angle grind the kingpin head off a bit for a ton of clearance.

From the site, the Ace low are lower in general but still fairly tall.


Low Bushing Set

Top 10mm tall | 91a hardness
Bottom 12mm tall | 86a hardness


Classic Bushing Set

Top 12mm tall | 91a hardness
Bottom 14mm tall | 86a hardness


As I had posted earlier in another thread, but this time using Ace aftermarket measurements:

Ace low
Total  22 mm
Top  10 mm
Bottom  12 mm

Ace classic
Total  26 mm
Top  12 mm
Bottom  14 mm

Venture stock 94a
Total  22.5 mm
Top  9.5 mm
Bottom  13 mm

Thunder stock 90a and aftermarket (same) 90a, 94a, 95a, 98a, 100a
Total  23.5 mm
Top  9.5 mm
Bottom  14 mm

Indy stock 90a and aftermarket (same in both cylinder and conical) 78a, 88a, 90a, 92a, 94a, 96a
Total  23.5 mm
Top  10.5 mm
Bottom  13 mm

Then Indy low head bushings 92a
Total  21 mm
Top  8 mm
Bottom  13 mm


* Added Venture in here as well.
