Carver trucks are are simply amazing! Looking for the ultimate carving and cruising truck. We have the answer for you! The Carver C7 trucks have a secondary pivot, which gives you a whole lot more lean, giving you that very similar feeling of surfing. Turn most any board into the ultimate carver board. Surf your skate!
The Carver C7 is Carvers Patented front truck designed to create the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water.
What gives it this ability is the extra axis of movement provided by the truck’s rotating arm, giving the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn. With this extra turning capacity, the back truck becomes a pivot from which to snap turns, the way fins hold in the water while the surfboard’s rocker slides on the surface of a wave.
This dynamic also creates the much sought after ability to pump the board for speed, and is the feature unique to Carver that finally delivers on the long-promised feel of surfing a skateboard. Riding fakie is also like riding a surfboard, but backwards, where the nose feels squirrely, and for this reason the C7 is a front truck only.
The arm rotates smoothly on precision industrial thrust bearings, and is dampened by a fully adjustable, heavy-duty internal die spring that allows each rider to customize the feel of their board.
But at its core, the C7 is still a skateboard truck, with a traditional hanger and standard new-school mounting hole pattern ( 2.1″, or 2 3/32″ long) that will fit any new-school skateboard deck, while preserving the original wheelbase.
