Introducing Fo' Shorties™...short titanium axles for Lacroix® Hypertrucks®!
About 1" shorter than a stock axle and far lighter (166grams steel vs 74grams Ti), these shorter axles allow you to make tighter turns with less effort. How?
The narrower the wheels are, the smaller the circle it carves, and the tighter the board turns when at the same angle. On a boards like the Lacroix® Nazare® and Lonestar®, the wide front track makes the turn radius larger. Since the front truck does most of the turning on this setup (due to it's increased rake), reducing just the front width makes a noticeable difference in turn radius and the ease at which you can take slower tight turns. Never again fear doing a u-turn in a narrow street.
It's great for pathways or crowded areas where you need more maneuverability to avoid people or objects. High speed stability is not affected. It simply feels like the board is more responsive.
Stock lights will fit using Tackform mounts. If you buy these mounts also grab a few M4x12 countersunk (ie, flathead) screws because the one included with the Tackform is too large.
Also note: You must use the XCELL™ M12 Anodized nuts for these axles, as the threaded portion isn't as long as stock. A touch of blue Loctite® can be used if desired.
Made of Grade 5 Titanium, these fit perfectly into the Hypertruck® housing.
Sold in Pairs.
