Pierre is getting himself ready for summer with some training runs at his backyard spot. Rocking a 48 white lite baseplate up front and a 38* forged basplate at the rear with both on 190mm Forged precision hangers, Pierre has now found his ultimate setup.
How do Swiss mountian passes compare to those in New Zealand? Jules Hornung knows… and trusts our Forged Precisions to hold lines on both.
The Forged Precision will soon be available in 180mm as well as 190mm width… more info soon.
Anyone who has seen Justin Readings skate knows that he is more than just a pretty face and long flowing locks; in fact, that flow and style can be seen whenever he gets on a skateboard (even when the mane is covered by a noggin protector). This raw run deep in the Oregonian wilderness is perfect evidence of Justin’s polished and agile manner that he employs when attacking the black top. Enjoy this two minutes of raw, yet refined, skateboarding to get you hyped for the next speed fix.

The Sabre Trucks “Standard” is our do-everything longboard truck. Now in it’s sixth year of production and development, this 48 degree truck has a number of features that set it apart from the rest…
Gravity Cast Hanger
True Gravity Casting from A356/LM25 Aluminium and post-cast T-6 heat
treatment process gives our hangers strength and stiffness that belies
their sleek looks and light weight. Trucks you can trust to survive the
abuse you dish out. More info here!
Urethane Pivot Cups
Poured from the same chemistry as our bushings, Sabre Pivots
are a custom fit and super-snug on the hanger for a slop-free,
super turny ride. More info here!
4130 Hardened Steel Axle
Heat treated prior to casting to ensure that bending is minimised,
this axle starts straight and will stay that way.
Tried and tested geometry
With 180mm or 190mm widths, 48 degree baseplate angle and 4.5mm of rake, this truck is nigh-on perfect for all kinds of longboarding. Our geometry has been dialled in over many years and thousands of road miles, we guarentee you will feel the difference… Check out our Geometry Guide for more!
We hope this is very much a standard feature on longboard trucks these days, we were one of the first to face our hangers and we still do, keeping your bearings straight and true.
8 Hole Baseplate
Fitting a new or old-school drill pattern, eight holes
allows up to 20mm wheelbase adjustment.
Available in skateshops everywhere now…

The French Alps were in many ways the birthplace of “modern” downhill skateboarding over a decade ago. Right now there is a new generation of rippers coming up… Our friends Jules Horning and Pierre Hardillier on a road trip with Fulkit Skateboards and 9.81 to produce this record of life on the road in a skate bus across the heart of Europe.
