When it comes to I-beams, orientation is everything. Trucks have been milled like #2 here for a long time; the Vapor is a good example of that, but nothing out there was a true I-beam like #1 until the Stream 7. It's a lot harder to engineer and manufacture a truck with flanges at the right angles to maximize strength and weight reduction for the static force a rider puts on their board, but we're really happy to have our five axis CNC and the years of engineering and machining experience to make it happen. I-Beams are relative to the direction of force. Watch out for companies who tell you otherwise. #techtuesday #engineeredforskateboarding #raceskateboards #precisiontrucks #skoa #stream7 #ibeam #precisiontruck
