“We’ve been busy designing, testing, and re-designing the new Caliber II’s, and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the end results! Our goal is to deliver the highest quality product possible to riders everywhere. To us, that meant building upon our original truck design, tightening tolerances, and providing the most precise feel possible in a cast truck!
We’ve redesigned our bushing seat and chamfer, removed any slop in our pivot cups, switched to thinner paints, and have updated the kingpin hole design while pressing in the kingpin itself to remove all play. Furthermore, to increase the durability of our trucks we’ve applied a new heat treatment process – increasing truck strength by up to 40% – and reinforced our baseplate design.
To see the changes in action, check out Liam, James, and Tyler as they breakdown the re-design of trucks, while raging mountain passes at high altitudes!” – Caliber Truck Co.
