The model FALCON is the choice to the rider that want to ride in a Rakeless platform and more wide width hangers. The goal in design is to have a smooth and good rebound, lively turning also have a very solid light and strong structure to stand the stresses without break or bend during huge jumps, good for beginers, and a solid background to experienced skaters.
The Falcon hanger have adjustable axles, what consists in a spacer 5mm wide that permit you use the hanger as 175mm or 185mm. Minimalist design inspired in “fraktal”, referred to the triangle pattern in fused into the design in certain way it will reinforce the structure by a process called forging, that will be explained bellow.
The structure are designed to be stronger, deept into the geometry are impregnated the Fractal mathematic law, the design was choose like this because the way of production designed to this model is hot forging, the sulcs are compressed the athoms together more agresivily in the main stress point next to side of the bushing seat.
Forging is one of the oldest known metalworking processes. Traditionally, forging was performed by a smith using hammer and 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 exponentially increased theamount and size of iron that could be produced and forged easily. The smithy or forge has evolved over centuries to become a facility with engineered processes, production equipment, tooling, raw materials 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, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics. Additionally, forgings can achieve a lower total cost than casting or fabrication. Considering all the costs that are incurred 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-term benefits 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.
