The first thing you’ll notice is the massive size and smooth, artisan curves. The baseplate mounting block features four lancet arch shaped reliefs that are complemented by a raptor wing profiled hanger. This truck looks like it might actually be able to fly. The mounting block reliefs are not just for their aesthetic appeal as they provide enough clearance for a box wrench or socket driver to ease installation/adjustments. Don’t be fooled- these trucks may look massive but the combination of super lightweight T6 heat treated aluminum and the cavernous arrow tip cavity makes them super light without sacrificing strength. The spring torsion wave cam mechanism is profoundly robust. The cam key secures the wave cam and lock nut tucked into a massive pivot cup. The nylon plastic wavecams are both wear parts and fail-safe components.
These new Hamboards Trucks took four years of designing, testing and improving to create their authentic style of riding. The HST’s are inspired by the Original S8 truck and their creation was an international effort: invented by a NASA Engineer, ride tested in America, designed in Europe and manufactured at the world's best truck factory in Asia.
Now that we’ve gone over the technical aspects, we’ll get plain and simple- these patent pending Hamboards HST Surfskate Trucks capture the surf feel and ignite an even greater Hamstoke. Riding with the HST’s creates a connection to the pavement like none other. These trucks allow the rider to challenge themselves and the board won’t falter. Only when you ride with the new HST’s will you understand the feeling.
