Ramon,

In all seriousness, if it's not offset and has no spherical bearing then what's the advantage over a stock RT-X hangar? I mean, I know it looks cool but where's the performance advantage over a mass-produced cast hangar with an 8mm axle replacement?

Increased turnabilty, precision 8mm axles, adjustable pivot lenght.

Even if you don't put the spherical in, but the top part of a Khiro Bitch bushing, or even nothing at all, it is way turnier and more precise than a stock RT-X.

A ball pivot doesn't hinder the truck from turning whereas a regular RT-X hanger pivot pin is restricting the truck from making a tighter turn.

Also, the bushing seat holds the bushings in place.

If it wasn't for all the testing we do before releasing a product, we would maybe come out with products that don't make sense. – I've tested this hanger and IMHO it is way better than a regular RT-X hanger with 8mm axle replacement.


Maybe Jason has one for you to try. Or Cat should have some in the US...

I would love to see a version of these in an offset. As tempted as I am to pick up some of these I'd find it almost irresistible to pass up an offset hanger version.

In that one photo they look a lot like a Bennett.

when we produced the truck we had something in mind to rival any existing truck in that price range,no...not rival:dominate.
we took our time and a lot of serious testing with very experienced people such as ramon and jason.
both riders are so favoured because they honestly say it when something sucks or has to be improved plus they do have a vast knowledge about trucks and functionality!
finally when the hanger was out we fooled aound with some riders giving them those trucks as fronts and you should have seen the look on their face when they saw what they just rode.

bottom line is:the hanger works wonders.
please move away from comparing it to any other brand hanger,this would be so wrong.
i am writing this totally unbiased,i just know how good this gadget is.
the fact that it immediately sold out here within a week and that there are only very positive! customer reviews too underlines the effectivity of the aforementioned product

We have them in stock. http://www.octanesport.co.uk/shop/catal ... ult/?q=gog

Not many!

And bear in mind we have a race this weekend in the UK, so will likely sell out there. Mind you its first come first served.

And I want one too.

I am really interest by this front truck.
But i haven't got the chance to try this. Maybe somebody can help me.

I wanna know if the truck have a similar action like some other trucks (indy, RTX, Benett...)?? I don't speak about the precision, just about the turny side.

Also, can i use this hanger on a indy baseplate?? Or a RTX baseplate is the better way to run thsi truck??

This Truck is much more turny and the way it curves into a turn is quiet more sensible than similar trucks like Bennet;RTX.
As far as i know it's just developed for Tracker Baseplates
What is it?
It's a bird...
It's a plane...

Jerk! It's a Pavel

It is similar to an RT-X but yes, it has more turn ability.

It should also fit into Indy baseplates.
