Did anyone else forget Royal still made trucks? With distributers like NHS and Delux reigning the truck world for decades now, it’s easy for Crailtap’s quiet Royal Trucks to get cold on the back-burner. Fortunately for Crailtap, they have a solid group of dudes working and skating for them (Ty Evans, Spike Jonze, Mike Carroll, Jerry Hsu, Guy Mariano, Mike Mo… just to name a small handful). When they want to bring quality to the table, they can. 2015 is the year of Royal Trucks. A totally renovated Royal Truck that’s easily on the level or your favorite Independent or Thunder Truck is now on the market in the form of the new Royal Standard Trucks. Peep these upgrades.
