At past you needed big board to get stability. Now
(lastcouple years) quality of boards construction and trucks
/wheels improved a lot. So you can run narrow/short boards with tight trucks.
In the mid of the year 2000, in Downhill Professional Skate began to appear the first precision trucks, back then people wonder that wider hanger trucks were more stable than the smaller ones, because the first trucks ever were from roller skates, they were very small, turn fast, but unstable at high speeds, after it when one of the first precision truck appears, it was 204mm wide, they really were more stable, but, with decades of skating, with the improving of wheels technology, people were slowly noticing that also steer a wide truck like this is very difficult, also wider hangers provides less grip than the smaller ones, Alsen Trucks understand time by a cycle not a straight line, things that were good back then have the potential to resurge from the ashes
The push for Trucks that can make more tight curves between 2010-2016 took a while and people were focusing on getting the most amount of grip from their wheels, now that wheel tech is the best ever and most DH wheels grip insanely more and roll faster.
Now trucks are getting tweaked, basically squeezing the most out of the lemon trying to get more grip/turn/lean, and with trucks geometry getting more advanced stability is easy to overcome now.
Mix up the benefits such as (Tall Bushing, Axle Height, Rake, 3D Bushing Seat, Forged Structure, CNC Machined surface. Improved Flanged Pivot, Big Riptide pivot cup), delivery a improved steering, tons of grip and stability.
ＩＮＤＲＡ project at the time had a internal codename PL2, passed for hundreds of formats and geometries exhausting testing in IDF world circuit, before the final form released, the project started in 2016, it took 3 years of developing and testing to release now in 2019.
Alsen Trucks have tall bushing baseplates to enjoy the maximum lean possible, material is forged before machine providing very strong baseplates to you, you can choose what's the best baseplate to your skate style, 25º has the minimum turn, and progressively the turn increase with the angle passing for 30º 45º 48º, for race most riders like use greater angle in front and smaller in the rear, like 48/25º or 45/30º, yo can found morbbout the riders taste in our AlsenTrucks International Group.
Forging is one of the
oldest known metalworking processes.
Traditionally, forging was performed by a smith using hammerand anvil, though introducing water power to the production and working of iron in the 12th century allowed the use of large trip hammers or power hammersthat expo-nentially increased theamount and size of iron that couldbe produced and forged easily.
The smithy or forge has evolved over centuries to become a facility with engineeed processes, production equipment, tooling, raw mate-rials and products to meet the demands of modern industry.Forging can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part.
As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain texture deforms to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the texture variation is continuous throughout the part, givingrise to a piece with improved strength characteristics.Additionally, forgings can achieve a lower total cost than casting or fabrication. Considering all the costs that areincurred in a product’s life cycle from procurement to lead time to rework, and factoring in the costs of scrap, and downtime and other quality considerations, the long-termbenefits of forgings can outweigh the short-term cost savings that castings or fabrications might offer.
Alsen Trucks developed a special tool to Forge the material before machining to enjoy all the benefits shown up, this way of production Forge then CNC, is that made the most strong and precise aluminium parts ever. Aero-Espacial grade pieces of technology.
Note: All baseplates are machined from the same forged blank.
Note: All hangers are machined from the same forged blank
I have been riding Alsen Indras for a year now and I have ridden them in just about every condition, over just about every pavement and over 110km/hr. Through all of this, these wonderful trucks have been able to take lines, grip hard and still be super stable like nothing else I’ve ridden. Indras offer a super open bushing seat that allows for more depth of turn out of the tall bushings while still being very stable at high speeds, this combo also dampens the effects of rough roads or flat spotted wheels, providing a nice smooth role. Indras come in just about any colour and configuration you could think of, so you can really personalise your setup!
Personally, I have had the privilege of skating both the 154-164 45/30 configuration and the 134-144 48/25 configuration. I was able to utilise both of these set ups stand up and hands down and so will you!
