Are you sure about that? A true 45 degree angle from its base?

Neither. I saw the selection in the Poll and decided to ask a question for clarity. I didn't select the selection because it confused me. I've never seen a skate plate that had true 45 degree angle trucks.

If you know the answer to the question why not just answer it?

To me "forward" means Aussie style...

Actually the kingpin angle of DA45s is 30 degrees. Not sure why 45 degrees is in the list.

Show me a plate claiming to be 45 degree with no pivot pin. Then we'll talk.

Sorry...I. cannot show you any plate that claims to be 45 degrees.

Where is the measurement taken to find out the degree angle of the kingpin on the truck of any plate if that plate or its truck has no accommodation for a pivot pen?

Because that is what they are known as.
It's pretty bloody simple.

It's just a misnomer, it's always been about 33 degrees or thereabouts.

Holiday Guy obviously did not know. Thanks Sidewinder for clearing it up with a picture. I'm not sure why people get upset when other people are either requesting correct information or attempting to provide clarity, by revealing truth, where there may be confusion.
