The Atlas 180mm 48 Degree Blue trucks are designed for freeride, freestyle, downhill, carving and cruising. Cast with A356 Aluminum for strength, the hanger measures 174mm long with a 211mm axle length. With a 48 degree baseplate for a quick turing radius, the double barrel bushings provide stability.
The kingpin is tapered at a 1:20 ratio to fit securely inside the precision tapered hole in the baseplate. As the kingpin is tightened, it self-centers to provide a zero tolerance fit. This is why the kingpin does not site flush.
Because of the ball pivots shape, there is less contact with the edge of the pivot cup. This allows an unrestricted range of motion. The shape also has a 50% increase in load-bearing surface for additional balance, control, and movement.
The Atlas pivot cup is built with Nylon6, a low friction and abrasion resistant material. It is self cleaning due to the three grooves that sweep dirt into a threaded air pocket below. The axle fits directly into this pocket for removal and maintenance without the need for extra tools.
The 8mm by 10mm stepped axle is strong and stiff for a responsive ride. It also eliminates the need for an inner speed ring.
The I-Beam hanger adds extra strength to prevent bending and weight balance.
The flat washer does not restrict the bushings and increases turing ability.
