FILM 6.0 Inverted Kingpin Trucks


FILM 6.0 Inverted Kingpin Trucks


Originally Cliché Skateboards’ sister company, FILM are producing high-quality and well-designed trucks at an insanely low cost. These are their inverted kingpin trucks; FILM also produce a range of graphic trucks for the more fashion-conscious skater.

If you’ve never used (or even seen) an inverted kingpin before, the basic idea is very simple: by putting the nut underneath the baseplate, you not only get more grind clearance – approximately 8.5mm if our verniers are to be believed – but also never have to deal with that irritating scenario where you’ve done so many grinds that the kingpin nut is fused onto the kingpin. It’s win/win.

With an 8.75″ axle, the FILM 6.0 Inverted Kingpin trucks are a perfect match for decks between 8.5″ and 9″ wide – or even wider if you use wide wheels or shaped decks.

We’ve measured the FILM 6.0 Inverted Kingpin trucks up, and we get a real-world hanger measurement of 153mm, an axle of 8.75″, and a height to the center of the axle of about 55mm with the stock bushings, with a weight (including all supplied nuts and washers) of 385g per truck.

The bottom bushing measures 14mm, and the top one is 10.3mm – 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.

The inverted kingpin can be adjusted with either a regular skate tool or an allen key (which isn’t supplied with the trucks). If you want to go the allen key route, it looks like you’ll need a 5.5mm one.

Finally, and just as a warning… as with most inverted kingpins, the hex nut in the baseplate isn’t held in place by anything other than the shape of the baseplate. This is a Good Thing as it means it’s still interchangeable, but note that it will drop out of position if you remove the kingpin – or keep it too loose! – and you may need to remove the truck from the deck to rebuild the truck. One quick hack would be to put duct-tape under the baseplate to ensure the nut does not drop out of the baseplate if you remove the kingpin. You could also JB weld the nut in place, but that will make replacing it if the threads strip nigh-impossible!
