The Carver USA Booster CX Truck Complete is the answer for anyone looking to ride the best.
Carver is a proud sponsor of the USA Surf Team, the hottest group of groms to ever snap a turn.
You’d think a group of 16 surfers would all have different opinions when it came to designing their favorite board. But we were surprised to hear many of the same ideas from the whole team, so we sharpened our pencil and took some notes.
They all liked the performance of a 30” board with a 16” wheelbase, but wanted a little more nose kick. This allowed them to really lock the front foot in place for more progressive riding, like blow tails, 180 reverses and big boneless airs.
The CX Truck is Carver’s hybrid surf and skate truck. On the one hand it’s a lightweight standard RKP (Reverse King Pin) hanger and base, and on the other it has a patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system.
With the patented design, CX pumps 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.
