Points Of Interest:
During our riding of this truck, we focused on three main features: 1. Turning. 2. Strength. 3. Weight.
1. Turning: After riding these trucks we really felt like the combination of the conical bushing seat, tall bushings, and 45 degree baseplate provided for a stable and precise turn.
2. Strength: We rode these trucks extensively and did not encounter any issues with bending. And honestly, due to the truck’s forged construction, we don’t foresee this becoming an issue.
3. Weight: Last but not least, these trucks are light—weighing in at just 15.37 ounces, they provided for a lively and responsive ride.
That’s a wrap! Thank you for watching the Wheelbase Magazine product review for the Kodiak forged trucks from Bear Trucks. We look forward to hearing from ya, so please comment in the comment section below and have a rad day!
