Default Quadruple action Longboard truck

Evolve Skateboards has a rather cool truck design with a quadruple action.
The electric motorized design shown in this video also seems rather fantastic.

The trucks are carving trucks. Ironically (since they added a motor) that design allows you to carve to keep momentum without putting your foot down.

I really dont know what that thing is underneath the board.

You can pump with any longboard just about and build speed if your good, even on crappy setups. This particular truck allows for a very tuneable suspension, and a increased potential of turning ability but with a steeper more stable kingpin angle.

Only problem is the more moving parts, the more that can go wrong.

I dont longboard really, I have one and never use it.

Those look like Gullwing Sidewinder trucks:



If so, they've been around for years. I had a set on the first longboard I ever purchased back in 2008. Sector 9 still uses them on some of their boards. I found them to be unstalbe at higher speeds due to the double action and how high they are, compared to conventional trucks.

I prefer a reverse kingpin truck style, like the Paris V2:
