    Default Krux?

    Anyone have any experience with krux trucks? If so would you mind telling me how good or bad they were? Were they durable? Did they grind down fast? Do they turn good? Only reason im considering getting them is because ive been wanting to try out more of a "light" setup next just for fun and to see how it feels and i heard krux are really light but i dont really know anything else about them.

    I have a pair of the high ones (maybe just mids...idk. not the low ones) on my backup board. I've had the same pair for years and years. I like them. They are fairly light, turn well and have held up through a lot. I don't really know of too many people that skate them here, but I never had a complaint about them. That said, I'm not too hard on my equipment so I can't really give a good read on the durability

    I've never had a pair, but I've heard generally good things from these forums. I've definitely never heard that they're prone to any particular problems or anything really negative about them.

    I'd say go for it and try it out.

    I had a pair of the 8.25"s

    They turn very well and very fast.
    They're light
    Grind so goood... like no other truck out there

    I prefer mid/low trucks so they didn't work out for me.Would ride them again if they made a low/mid version in 8.25

    Got the Krux like I said I was planning on doing. Actually hunted a long time to find a set that had the inverted kingpin style, but weren't the "Downlows" and still had high ride height.

    SO GLAD I held out until I found these. They turn just beautifully, grind smooth, all around just great. And since they're highs with that upside down kingpin design, I can literally just grind these until I grind through an axle because there's no way I can ever get kingpin hangups.
