Our view:
This truck features the latest hanger & baseplate arrangements from Sabre.
The 48 degree baseplate provides the most turn in the Sabre line up, yet for the right rider can still provide more than enough stability for downhill applications.
This variant comes with the 170mm wide hanger, which is better suited for boards in the 9" wide range, which tend to work better for skaters with smaller feet like ladies or younger riders.

From Sabre:
The Sabre Cast Precision gets you the most bang for your buck from all our trucks. The two most important features of any "Precision" truck are a CNC pivot and straight axles - using a combination of our Cast Hollowlite 48 degree baseplate and our Forged Preciusion 6061-T6 Hangers, you get both at a price that will leave you enough dollar for another race entry this season. Available in 170mm (grey hanger, 3mm axle rake) and 180mm (blue hanger, 3mm axle rake), these trucks come as standard with our UK poured bushings and long-lasting pivot cups.

  • 8-hole adjustable 48 Degree baseplate
  • 170mm or 180mm Hanger Width
  • Axle Height: 64mm
  • Weight (180mm): 410g
  • Cold Forged 6061-T6 Hanger
  • Hollow Grade 8 Kingpin
  • CNC’d hanger pivot
  • 4130 CNC’d axle studs
  • 3mm Axle Rake on both widths

  • Urethane Pivot Cup

Cold Forging
Forging is one of the oldest metal working methods known to man. It is used to create high-strength, ultra-hard objects like tools, weapons and high-stress engine components.

Rather than melting the metal stock and casting it into the shape of a mould, the raw metal billet is placed in a die and hammered into shape with a powerful hydraulic hammer.

The metal grains are perfectly aligned to the shape of the part, the surface is exceptionally strong, and it has excellent resistance to impacts and fatigue over continued stress.

Compared to Cast and CNC trucks:

Casting has a random grain structure, and fails to preserve any grain strength in the original material.
CNC operations actually remove surface hardness from the stock Billet by leaving the grains open ended.
Forging aligns the grain structure with the shape of the finished piece, resulting in an approx 30% increase in strength to the original Billet, making it possible for us to make much lighter trucks.
We use Cold Forged 6061-T6 Billet to produce our Forged Precision hangers and baseplates.

Forged hangers and baseplates are subjected to various CNC operations on areas that require a super-high tolerance, such as the pivot, kingpin mount, and axle studs.

CNC Pivot
Our Forged Precision Hangers are super strong and light thanks to our Cold Forging process. But to make them worthy of the “Precision” moniker, we need to take them a step further.

The heart of every truck is its pivot. The finish, roundness and consistency of the pivot determines how smooth and “precise” the truck feels under your feet.

All of our Forged Precision Hangers feature a CNC’d pivot, perfectly concentric, ultra smooth and an airtight fit on our urethane pivot cups.

Catch any of our riders and they will tell you how smooth and flowing our Forged Precision trucks feel. This is largely due to this feature – it’s what makes our Cast Precision and Forged Precision trucks feel so good.
