Paris 169 Trucks

Paris are largely known for their longboard trucks, but their “street” trucks are truly top-notch. Combining solid construction with a top-quality finish, these are definitely premium trucks.

These 169mm trucks are absolute giants – at 58mm tall they give you quite a bit more clearance than other trucks in this size, so feel free to go for some bigger wheels for higher speed with less fear of wheelbite.

With a 9.3″ axle, these are perfect for a lot of the bigger shaped decks out there, so lend themselves well to big bowl setups and vert decks.

We’ve measured the Paris 169 up, and we seem to get a real-world hanger measurement of 169mm (a true-to-size hangar measurement? What a shocker), an axle of 9.3″, and a height to the center of the axle of about 58mm with the stock bushings, with a weight (including all supplied nuts and washers) of 440g per truck. These are some tall trucks – perfect for giant wheels under a massive shaped deck.

The bottom bushing is a 13mm tall barrel, and the top one is a 13.4mm tall cone. The provided bushings measure 89a on our durometer, which should be fine for most people on most setups. These trucks come with an extra long kingpin, which means you can fit in taller bushings than usual; we recommend using the Khiro KBAC-2 bushings if you’re looking for a replacement, as not only are they a perfect fit, but all that extra urethane will give you the maximum stability and rebound possible.

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. Note, however, that it’s a thicker baseplate than usual, coming in at 6mm instead of the standard 4mm. They’re less likely to break than a lot of trucks, but you will need to take that into consideration when you’re picking out your bolts and risers.

The pivot cups have a 17.5mm external diameter and a 13mm internal diameter, and appear to be pre-lubricated to reduce squeaking. This is a nice move, and we wish more truck manufacturers would do this.

Finally, the pre-installed kingpins are of the modern splined variety, and there’s no way to use an inverted or traditional kingpin without resorting to something like JB Weld.
