The revolutionary Sabre Forged Precision Hanger gets an upgrade!
Building on lessons learned from our game-changing Cold Forged construction, the MK2 features a stiffer hanger body, developed with cutting edge FEA technology and many thousands of miles of downhill skateboarding. The result? By adding only a few grams of aluminium we have increased the stiffness by 90% – almost double the MK1.
Strong, light, with all the benefits of a CNC’d precision engineering, this hanger is made by forging a billet of 6061-T6, then CNC’ing the pivot and adding high-strength steel precision 8mm axle studs.
As well as re-engineering the hanger body for more stiffness, we have redesigned the pivot slightly to prevent binding on the pivot cup. By removing the draft and making the pivot body totally cylindrical, the hanger turns much smoother in the pivot cup.
This translates to much-improved board feel at any speed, and any angle – no matter if you’re a dancer or a racer, a freerider or just cruising, you will really notice the difference in turn and board feel!
Featuring the same open bushing seat as the original for maximum lean, this hanger is fully compatible with all Sabre baseplates and as such makes a great upgrade from your cast hangers.
The Mk2 Forged Hangers are available in 170mm and 180mm widths, with 3mm rake.
