The most important component of a skateboard or longboard are the trucks. They determine the manageability and are selected according to the length and width of the board.
Skateboardtrucks also known as traditional kingpin trucks (TKP) are distinguished by
their geometry of longboard trucks or also reverse kingpin trucks (RKP). With a skateboard truck the kingpin is almost straight up and on a longboard trucks the kingpin is inclined and points outwards.
