If you like to shred bowls, ollie stairs and then bomb your local hill, this is the truck for you. The future of longboarding is going fast and skating everything, so we made sure the geometry is well capable of holding some speed whilst still keeping that divey "street truck" feel. Our unique take on a decades old design allows the use of full size bushings top AND bottom for maximum lean and a super low ride height. Featuring the same adjustable wheelbase as our other longboard trucks baseplate, and 127, 139, 153, 170 and 180mm widths available, you will find a truck perfect for your hybrid or twinkick deck.

I got myself a pair of the Sabre 170 TKP's and chucked em on my pool board. I ride it in bowls and miniramp mainly.
Gotta say the Sabres are really doing it for me right now. Once I had a little tweak and switched out the stock bushings for some green sabre barrels at the baseplate with no washer and orange cones on top with a flat washer they are banging. They have what I can only describe as a more progressive turn than my Indy's (my only point of refernce in TKP land) and a plenty of lean too. In my book all good.
Grinding - I was tempted to knock out the longer kingpin and switch to a shorter one and smaller bushings. But then I though screw that I like them the way they are ...the extra bushing squidge is rad I wanna keep that feeling. They grind real nice actually. I occasionally hit the kingpin now and then but to be honest I barely even notice it when I do and it doesn't mess with my grind.
A feature I really like is the double drilling on the baseplate so you can adjust your wheelbase. This means I can start looking at some boards I would normally ignore because of the wheelbase. Not a game changer when looking for a truck but certainly a nice feature.
My passing thought on these trucks is that they feel like they have been designed with longboarders in mind and putting what is important to them first. I would certainly be a lot more confident hauling ass on these than I would an Indy for instance. Inversely I don't think the Sabre TKP will have hardcore popsicle skaters ditching their Indy's to pick up Sabres ....but hey I get the feeling that isn't what Sabre were shooting for here. If you longboard and you are looking for a TKP that will suit you .... I highly recommend you give these a try.
I am that happy I am gunna pick up a set of the 180's later this month and chuck em on my freeride setup. Normally always rock RKP's but figured these could be fun.If I don't like it...I'll just chuck em on my 10" Skull Skates coz I know they will be sick on that.
