I had heard the hype behind Cast Ronin Trucks (Cronins) for the longest time… Everyone from riders on longboard porn to team fun always talked about how much they loved their cronins. I finally pulled the trigger and set up my Soda Born 2 Hula 2 with Ronins & Divine Road Rippers. With the stock bushing set up, the Cronins were extremely responsive. The Ronins carved like a freaking dream come true! Perfect for carving parking garages, and cruising around with.
When it came time to bomb down some hills, I upgraded the stock bushings with some tall Venoms. The trucks weren’t as responsive, but they responded very well at speeds. I couldn’t be more pleased with the amount of abuse these longboard trucks have taken this past year. If you’re not quite ready for precision trucks, yet have outgrown your traditional longboard trucks Cast Ronin Trucks are the perfect stepping stone.
