The Carver Proteus Basalt Rail is unique in it’s simplicity while providing you with a tight and responsive maneuverability. Pick up this little guy and change things up while surfing the streets!
The Carver Proteus Basalt Rail features a boxy template, to help give your front foot more support and leverage while offering a larger stance on a shorter board.
The clipped nose of this guy was designed to help reduce the swing weight while snapping those turns. The spoon concave nose helps provide you with more leverage while hugging your foot. This board also features a proper kick tail so you can pop those ollies!
CARVER C7 TRUCK:
The Carver C7 Truck is Carver’s Patented front truck which is 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. As a result, this gives the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn.
The arm rotates smoothly on precision industrial thrust bearings, and is dampened by a fully adjustable, heavy-duty internal die spring. This 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). In addition this will fit any new-school skateboard deck, while preserving the original wheelbase. That being said, these are the perfect trucks to accommodate this board, consequently if you are looking for a setup to carve your way through the streets, with the same fluid feel as a surfboard.
CARVER CX TRUCK:
The Carver CX Truck is Carver’s reverse kingpin hybrid skate trucks which are their lightest and snappiest pumping truck. What gives it this ability, patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system.
With the patented design, this means that you can pump this truck like a C7, but the CX lands airs and rides fakie with more stability in comparison. This opens up aerial maneuvers, and keys in with the latest progression of airs in surfing. The CX also has more pump and a tighter turning radius than any other reverse kingpin truck on the market, but without any other parts. It has a similar feel to that of the C7 but is less extreme, so if you want a more familiar feel to your board but want to pump and surf, then the CX is the truck you want on a board like this. The CX trucks are ideal for progressive airs, reverses, and anyone who prefers a snappy turn.
