Free Soul Trucks Review
As we approach the end of Winter, it's a great time to look into upgrading your longboard set-up as we prepare for another beautiful season of riding. Maybe those trucks you've been riding are getting old and squeaky? Maybe the bearings make enough noise to make your teeth chatter?
Either way, we wanted to give you a full insight into some of the parts we offer to help you make your decision, starting with our most popular set of trucks: the Free Soul 180's.
We've done our best to compile as much info as we can on these. Feel free to add your own comments as well if you own a pair of these and would like to contribute your thoughts!
To kick things off, let's look at it's history. Free Soul is a fairly small American based company that has been servicing skate brands all over the country since their initial launch in 2011. They've been chosen to be used by several large brands including Hamboards and Shark Wheels (UK).
From a glance, the trucks themselves look pretty similar to a V2 Paris Truck (see image below). We suspect that whoever designed the Free Soul 50's based the construction off of the V2's. But really, can you blame them? The V2 has been a fan favorite for years, and Paris still holds it's title for one of the most popular truck companies in the skate community.
Before we decided to sell these, our team took a few pairs of them out to the streets to see what they could do.
The results left all of us smiling. The trucks performed better than we had expected for the price.
