Silver Trucks M Class & L Class

In our recent Halloween box we included a set of trucks from Silver, mixing it up with a selection of the Chad Ortiz M Class trucks and the Josh Kalis L Class trucks. In the KrakMag we laid out a little photo feature and gave you the low down on what makes each of these trucks so good!

Silver Trucks M Class

Silver M-Class trucks optimize turning ability with a refined structure and distinctive contours. A perfect amount of ground clearance, an exceptionally strong construction and dynamic components contribute to the overall quality, stability and smoothness of the M-Class. The performance level of the Silver M-Class easily meets and exceeds the high impact demands of a skateboard truck.

Silver Trucks L Class

Silver L-Class trucks feature a low profile structure designed for enhanced turning and ultimate control. In addition, the L-Class truck gives new meaning to the term light weight with its unique construction and quality components, including hollow kingpins, refined hangers and honed baseplates. Smooth performance, solid stability, and long lasting durability make L-Class trucks ideal for all levels of skateboarding.

INSPIRATION: How Micky Papa Won Damn Am Chicago 2015

The homie and Blind Skateboard’s newest AM Micky Papa (his Blinded part that recently dropped is straight ridiculous) just shut down the Chicago stop of SPoT’s Damn AM 2015 series yesterday at Chicago’s Grant Park.

With a winning run that consists of a nollie front feeble down the 8 stair rail, a kickflip back 5-0 down the tall-ass hubba, a gapped kickflip UP to the second level, a kickflip front 50-50 on the bank to ledge, a kickflip backside crooks on a ledge, a nollie backside feeble on the A-frame rail, and finishing with a backside 360 on the mini pyramid corner hip, Micky put down a flawless run and won a trip to Tampa AM as wells as a Golden Ticket into the Semis. Totally deserved! Peep his run in the SPoT video below! Totally insane board control. – HK

Here’s Micky with a nollie backside feeble revert from during practice.
