This week’s pick comes via Sheila from Massachusetts and trust me, this one’s a real crispy. Girl deck, Indy Trucks and Ricta Wheels rollin’ on Bones bearings, gripped up with Mob all laced up with Girl bolts, this is one seriously sick setup. You can put together this exact CNN, HERE!
Deck: Girl Howard Sign Here 8.5 x 31.88
Trucks: Independent Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow 149
Wheels: Ricta Speedring Green 52mm
Bearings: Bones Reds
Hardware: Girl Allen 1”
Griptape: Mob Weed Leaf Laser Cut
Rick Howard and Girl Skateboards are about as OG as it gets. They always come through with real skateboarding by real skateboarders for real skateboarders. The Rick Howard Girl Sign Here deck features 7-ply maple construction and the same great shapes you can always expect from Girl.
The Independent Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow Truck is another killer truck from Independent. With the forged base-plates your trucks become more stable, lighter, and thinner. With a slightly thinner baseplate then the standard Indy’s, this makes the Forged Hollow trucks a mid height truck. The total height for a standard height Indy is 53mm while the Forged Hollows are 51.5mm. You get hollow kingpins and hollow axles, plus the original bushing design and shape.
Ricta Speedring Wheels serve up the instant speed of cored wheels, but without their hard-core chatter. Structural ‘Flex-Rings’ fight bearing deflection under load to provide hesitation free landings, and that means successfully rolling away from more tricks. Roll faster.
Bones Reds are dedicated to producing the highest quality skate bearings manufactured in China, inspecting them twice before shipping them to skaters. They offer the greatest combination of performance, durability and low cost in the industry, giving a near Bones Swiss performance at a fraction of the cost. Bones Reds are high performance precision ground bearings at an affordable price. Girl Allen Hardware is a set of 8 nuts and bolts. Allen head.
