Fresh from the Crailtap camp is a redesigned, reworked and highly improved Royal truck. Out-dating previous models, these new trucks are made from a higher-quality alloy with improved geometry and design; meaning a better grinding, better turning and longer lasting truck. But those are all just words until you bolt ’em on and skate ’em, so we had our boy Nate Hoover put the new and improved Royal’s to the test. Nate definitely put these trucks through their paces for our Royal Trucks review, and we’re stoked to say that they held up and skated just as well as any of the other top truck brands out. But don’t just take our word for it, peep the vid then pick up a set to try for yourself!
