FILM 5.5 Leo Vallis Trucks

£42

Originally Cliché Skateboards’ sister company, FILM are producing high-quality and well-designed trucks at an insanely low cost. These are the special Leo Vallis signature trucks with a matt grey baseplate and a pushing cat graphic on the hangar. How can you resist that?

There’s a lot to love on FILM’s trucks; stock bushings which slot into the hangar, holding it still around the kingpin; a baseplate which can still use traditional hex-head kingpins and still has the old-school mounting ; faced hangar ends to ensure the bearings can spin properly; and, of course, solid construction and a great turn.

5.5″ trucks are a perfect match for decks between 8″ and 8.5″ wide, or shaped decks with extreme curves.

Description

We’ve measured the FILM Leo Vallis 5.5 up, and we get a real-world hanger measurement of 144mm, an axle of 8.25″, and a height to the center of the axle of about 54mm with the stock bushings, with a weight (including all supplied nuts and washers) of 360g per truck – making these trucks fractionally lighter than Independent’s standard 144.

The bottom bushing measures 12mm, and the top one is 8.5mm – with a specially-shaped extension to fit around the kingpin in the hanger to hold the hanger central and reduce slop. The provided bushings measure 88a on our durometer, and should be fine for most skaters out of the box.

Finally, the pre-installed kingpins are of the modern splined variety, but there is a space in the baseplate for a hexhead; we can’t guarantee a traditional or inverted kingpin would be held without wobble until we try it ourselves, but at least on paper, it should work.
