Maybe you've heard of or have tried a friends Carver Skateboard and you just have to experience that smooth carving feeling again.
The Carver pump is based around the innovative trucks which allow the board to pump like a surfboard ...
The two main front Trucks available are:
The Carver C7 truck is a Patented front truck designed to create the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water. What gives it this ability is the extra axis of movement provided by the truck’s rotating arm, giving the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn. With this extra turning capacity, the back truck becomes a pivot from which to snap turns, the way fins hold in the water while the surfboard’s rocker slides on the surface of a wave.This dynamic also creates the much sought after ability to pump the board for speed, and is the feature unique to C7 trucks that finally delivers on the long-promised feel of surfing a skateboard.
The Carver CX truck with a few carves side to side you immediately begin to generate speed, and with a little more pumping you can gain significant speed. The thrust generated is so powerful you can even pump uphill.So whether you’re surfing the sidewalk, flowing through a skatepark or big-wave surfing downhill, you never have to put your foot down to make a section. For years many longboard companies have falsely claimed that their boards ‘feel just like surfing’, but we took that promise seriously. What you get with a CX is a truck that has all the thrust and pump of a surfskate but with a stiffer and more stable pushing platform.
Both the C7 & CX front trucks are paired with the C2 rear truck which has been specifically designed to allow you to push hard into the tail and have the wheels bite into the pavement holding the ground in the deepest turns, feels solid underfoot and snaps back to center with exceptional rebound without any of the subtle chatter that results in traction break.
Shorter boards are more maneuverable and pump easier, while longer boards are more stable and handle speed better. Wider boards generally provide better turn leverage than narrow boards.
