LOOSE TRUCKS SAVE LIVES
ACE Trucks was founded in 2007 by Joey Tershay. In cooperation with his business partner Steve “Shrewgy” Ruge, he gathered a lot of know-how about designing and producing skateboard trucks. The Independent Stage III truck, which was popular for its maneuverability, served as a template for ACE trucks.
The plain, almost minimalistic design of ACE trucks is an eye-catcher. The Baseplate is similar to one from Independent, but only the pivot has been repositioned more to the inside (direction wheelbase). The characteristic, round hanger provides a lot of material and guarantees durability, judging from the looks of it. In comparison to other skateboard trucks, the ACE trucks hanger stays straight all the way from wheel to wheel and doesn’t taper. Instead, the hanger’s ends are conical around the axle, to provide more space and less friction for the bearings.
The ACE 44 Classic truck’s kingpin sits very low to prevent hang-ups. Additional ACE trucks are known for their exact steering performance. The very low bushing seat in combination with the stock bushings might be responsible for that. ACE trucks come with 86A Bottom and 91A Top Bushings to ensure maximum performance turns.
