The Carver Swallow has been a staple in Carver’s spectacular surfskate line-up. This board features a fast and maneuverable, with a magical combination of length and width that makes this particular board easy to pump. In addition it is also perfectly stable for cruising.
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 C7 dual-axis truck set is very fluid, like riding a single fin surfboard and replicating the lateral sway you feel as you pump for speed. The dual axis allows the rider to adjust both axis independently for fine tuning.
It’s a bit heavier than the CX truck, but the internal spring system allows for a wide range of adjustment. The trailing arm and wide adjustment range make this truck better for faster speeds and fluid surfing.
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.
