Computer Magic – CAD Tour of an Early Vapor

We get to play around with some pretty cool stuff here. Using Solid Works and some of the additional programs for it we were able to put our trucks together before they were ever milled and see how everything fit together. Here we were playing around with tall and standard barrels, as well as seeing how spherical bearings would be in the pivot in comparison with our hand poured urethane option. You can also see in the video how the hanger interacts with the other parts when flipped.

In the end, we chose to go with only our urethane pivots, but we’re stoked to give riders the option to choose between tall and standard barrels. Flippable hangers also give riders the option of tuning their ride for what they’re doing!
