Lacroix's famous high quality trucks

Chiselled to hair splitting precision out of a huge brick of aerospace 7075 aluminium with a 5 axis CNC, the Hypertrucks™ were designed from the ground up by Lacroix™ in conjunction with Brad T. Miller (of RipTide™ Sports, a market leader in bushings technology) and an experienced DIY e-board mechanical CAD sorcerer (Pedro Paganini De Mio).

The result is a 19 inch wide high precision Hypertruck™ with triple bearing axles (12mm and 15mm) axles made to hold a bearing in the wheel pulley, all of which self corrects speed wobbles. 

By their very design, the trucks are engineered to attenuate the wobbles, not amplify them. If they do start to occur, the trucks work so you don't get to that "oh sh*t" moment. On a medium-loose setup, if you start to feel wobbles around 33mph+, simply let off the throttle for a very slight moment and the trucks will automatically self correct and stabilize.

After the magic happens, bend your knees, hit that throttle again. And go.

 (The lonestar blue also offers more ground clearance)

What's included :

  •  1 front truck
  • 1 rear truck with motor mounts;
    • 2 x 2 piece motor mount with 30mm mounting hole pattern for the motor (only this mounting pattern is available).
  • 4 pairs of custom RipTide bushings for every weight and ride style.
  • 2x rear tires with with 2x72T pulleys made of the strongest 7075 aluminium including a 6003 centering bearing, made specifically for the Hypertruck™
  • 2 custom GoPro mounts on the front trucks.
  • full titanium mounting hardware, specifically;
    • mounting trucks to deck (8xM5)
    • mounting the 2 piece motor mounts (8xM5)
    • mounting the motors to the motor mounts (8xM4)
    • mounting the motor mounts to the trucks (4xM8)
    • NOTE; all locknuts are in AL.
  • 2x front MBS Rockstar2 wheels with 2x CST 7.5 inch tires mounted.

    Disclaimer:

    Obviously, having a Hypertruck™ that is designed to reduce and help correct speedwobbles does not mean it's impossible to get any. If you have never experienced speedwobbles and don't know how to handle them, this should not be the first truck on which to get them. Don't attempt to go fast on these trucks thinking they'll never happen or that the Hypertruck™ will save you. You'll get hurt. Only racecars drivers will see the difference between a perfect dampers and shock setting and a terrible one. You need to be able to drive a racecar before knowing the difference. Same here.

    But for those who have experienced speed wobbles before and know how to handle them, they'll be pleasantly surprised. The Hypertrucks™ significantly reduces that "oh sh*t" moment to something mellow and much more manageable.

    The Self Correcting Speed Wobble Tech™ is achieved by a bunch of factors - weight distribution on the Hypertrucks™, asymmetry of the deck, bushings, width of truck, length of deck, etc. It works on the Nazare™ and Nazare Lonestar™ that have very specific components.

    Additional Information

    Transport Damage

    All stand up paddle boards, skateboards and bikes are all wrapped in bubble wrap and extra cardboard protection, then inserted into a strong cardboard box and taped up with fragile tape.

    However, given the speed at which some courier companies operate, there is a very small risk that a product may get damaged on route. If this occurs, we will replace your product as soon as possible or provide credit for another similar product. You will need to make sure you report your damaged item within 24hrs of it's arrival and ensure your damaged item is available for collection by our couriers as soon as possible and we’ll sort out the rest.

    How to report damaged items; simply send us photos of the product damage and the photos of the outside of the box within 24hrs, so we have all the information needed to make a claim with the courier on time.

    Delivery responsibility

    BB maintain ownership and responsibility of the products until they are delivered to the requested delivery address.

    ATL

    Customers can give Authority to Leave (ATL) for goods and stand up paddle boards at the specified delivery address if no one is going to be home. This means that once the delivery driver has left the goods at the delivery address, the customer then owns and accepts responsibility for the goods.
    PLEASE NOTE: If a customer has asked for goods to be delivered “to the rear of the house” for example, this constitutes as Authority to Leave.
