FILM Chet Childress Trucks

£42

Originally Cliché Skateboards’ sister company, FILM are producing high-quality and well-designed trucks at an insanely low cost. These are Chet Childress’ guest model trucks, with a gloss black hangar featuring some great art by Chet himself; FILM also produce regular RAW trucks if you want a more classic look.

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.

Description

(Note that all the following measurements for the FILM Chet Childress trucks have been taken by ourselves, not just copied from a manufacturer’s website. We don’t trust those measurements either.)
Size Hangar Axle Height Weight To fit
5.25 137mm 8″ 54mm 350g 7.75″-8.25″
5.5 144mm 8.25″ 54mm 360g 8″-8.5″
6.0 153mm 8.75″ 55mm 370g 8.5″-9″

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.
