The Gullwing 9″ Pro III truck is perfect for proper-sized vert and pool decks – if you’ve been searching for the perfect undercarriage for something like the classic 9″ pool deck from Death Skateboards, look no further.
We’ve measured the Gullwing 9″ Pro III up, and we seem to get a real-world hanger measurement of 158mm, an axle of 8.9″, and a height to the center of the axle of about 57mm with the stock bushings, with a weight (including all supplied nuts and washers) of 420g per truck.
The bottom bushing is a 16mm tall barrel, and the top one is a 9.5mm tall cone. The provided bushings measure 85a on our durometer. Due to the fact the baseplate has a built-in bushing seat for barrels, we recommend sticking with a barrel and cone setup if you’re looking to put aftermarket bushings in these trucks. That’ll give you the best possible rebound and stability – you should be actively pushed out of a carve if you’ve got it set up right.
The baseplate is double-drilled, having both the new school (shorter) hole pattern and the original 80s style holes, meaning these will fit on any board in existence, whether it’s a modern shaped deck or a classic reissue.
Finally, the pre-installed kingpins are of the modern splined variety, but the baseplate is shaped to hold a hex head kingpin or nut in place without any movement at all. If you wanted to use an inverted kingpin for better grinds, this would be a perfect candidate.
