PNL Trucks

870xPNL-Banner After spending over 20 years in the industry via skateboarding and surfing, Douglas Owens decided that the current selection of trucks just didn't cut it when it came to his longboarding needs. With this inspiration he and the crew at PNL tested a multitude of designs and construction methods until they created the "ultimate free-riding truck".

RipTide + CalStreets Bushings Pivot Cups Canada Pickup Vancouver RipTide's all about designing and developing the sickest gear out there, no doubt. When you're searching for the perfect bushing, you gotta focus on three things: how you ride, the shape of the bushing, and the durometer. The durometer of a bushing is what determines whether it's hard or soft. And that's what's gonna give you that sweet lean you're looking for. But when you're picking out the right durometer, you gotta consider two things: your riding style and your weight. If you're all about bombing hills, you're gonna want a harder bushing for max stability. But if you're more into freeriding, a softer bushing's gonna be your jam. And don't forget about your weight, either. If you're a featherweight, go for a soft bushing. If you're packing some pounds, you'll wanna go harder.
