Details

Our view:
The CX truck set has received a major overhaul in key areas, this applies to both the front & rear trucks. Baseplates & hangers have been refined & to top off the package, both the pivot pins have now been machined to a perfect pin.
Normally you'd only find this feature on trucks cut out of billet alumnium by CNC (Computer numeric control) machines, but Carver have been pioneering this feature on their cast trucks since their CV model.
The main benefit of this precision pivot pin is the incredibly fluid turn in the baseplate, allowing you a friction less lean, which gives you the smoothest back & forth while you pump your way forwards or cut up roads like they were your very own concrete wave.
These are ideal for those looking for a quick turning setup to ride in bowls & pools.

The Carver CX.4 is brand new for 2013. We’ve made significant improvements to this front-only truck that gives it unprecedented thrust and pump, as well as increased turn radius and snap-back. With a few carves side to side you immediately begin to generate speed, and with a little more pumping you can gain significant speed. The thrust generated is so powerful you can even pump uphill. So whether you’re surfing the sidewalk, flowing through a skatepark or big-wave surfing downhill, you never have to put your foot down to make a section. For years many longboard companies have falsely claimed that their boards ‘feel just like surfing’, but we took that promise seriously. So while the CX may just look like a regular RKP (Reverse King Pin) style truck, the simple appearance of this patented surfkate hides its true performance. What you get is a truck that has all the thrust of a surfboard but with a lighter and more stable pushing platform. While these two properties would seem contradictory, through a careful pairing of both the thrust-prone geometry and a sculpted bushing cup that hugs the urethane bushings in just the right way, you get a truck that is both loose when you want to pump and stable when you want to push or land tricks. Plus without the swiveling arm of our C7 surf truck, the CX is both lighter and easier to ride fakie, opening up your ability to perform tricks involving reverse riding like 180 slides while still feeling that reverse-riding-surfboard feel.
