Despite the fact that we have seen at least one off-road skateboard with integrated damping system, the suspension system used for more traditional models – a little rare, if not more. The designers of the California-based company Avenue Trucks, however, decided that their vocation is to change this situation. They argue that their development – shock absorbers for skateboard standard type, should improve the look and feel of riding on the board a few key ways.
Unlike some other sets of depreciation for skateboard (such as shock absorbers from the company Seismic), the novelty of the Avenue Trucks does not include spring-type shock absorbers. Instead they use a simpler design, which is mounted on the main part of the wrapped top metal layer, which can be bent up to a half inch (12.7 mm).
Body able to spin and unlike traditional shock absorbers, this type has a “floating” the fulcrum, which reportedly leads to a smoother cornering and a higher level of quality control.
Designers also argue that the possibility of these supplements in a new way to eliminate vibrations from the irregularities to stabilize the speed. In addition, pre-loaded the shock absorber, acrobats will perform its elements a little differently, with greater amplitude.
Needless to say, the half-inch stroke minimizes the impact on the ligaments and the skeleton athlete. To date, active fund-raising campaign. Deposit of $ 45 will allow rely on a set of first among the lucky ones.
