which trucks and why?-Vector Channel or ATS Skate


Basically I've been looking into buying a board and I have decided on either the MBS Core 95 or the MBS Core 90, the only difference seeming to be the trucks and £30. Any recommendations on which one?

Only advantage of the skate style trucks would be less weight, ideal for freestyle...and a couple more bucks in your pocket. The beefier, sprung channel trucks are more stable at speed.

My personal opinion would be to get the 95 and have a better all around board...that is also more ideal for learning.

http://www.powerkiteforum.com/viewthread.php?tid=27490 buy used from a trusted seller and save $300 or more

channel trucks are more stable at speed, and beefier, overall recommended. Only real reason to go for the skate trucks is to save weight for doing board-off tricks.

Okay thanks, I'll go for the core 95 I think.
