Skate fast, go Rogue.
Rogue trucks are the next big thing in the Downhill market. They're designed for maximum lean and turn so that you can rail any corner at any moment.
Rogues are optimized to get the most leverage over your bushing, utilizing all the properties the urethane was designed for. Similar to Ronin in that they don't have a bushing seat restricting the behavior of the bushing, but different in that there's no queen pin, instead using a smaller bushing that fits snug within the hangar to eliminate slop. The result is a solid center but accurate turning.
The insert bushing is designed to mimic a rare truck feature called sphericals, often used in slalom and also in downhill. In sphericals, an actual bearing lies in the center of the hangar to guide movement. They have the benefit of a quick, crisp hookup after drifts and a quick turn, however they're tricky to dial in and can be too twitchy. Rogue addressed these flaws by just switching to urethane so that it is simple to configure, not too twitchy but with a comfortable response, and adjustable by durometer and formula.
The pivot is a familiar shape but a bit larger and longer than most cast trucks, which adds stabilization. The hangars are 186mm wide, which also increases stability and allows slides kick out out a bit easier.
Overall, these trucks are great for freeride and downhill disciplines. Stable in the straights, but agile enough to surf corners and flow from slide to slide.
A great way to experience the wonder of Rogue geometry without spending on precision prices.
Sold as a set of 2.
