Evolution of the Retro Carve
After long trials over the last few years with legendary Bennet trucks we have reached a low rider cruising and carving perfection for the Retro Carve. Abec 11 flashback 70mm 75a wheels, bones reds bearings and 6 inch Bennet Vector trucks are expected to be this board’s benchmark for some years to come. Upgraded grip to 2″ strips, etched decks with super clean lines. Independent 1″ bolts as first choice.
After 6 years or so we can no longer source Bennet Vector trucks which is a real loss to the UK longboarding scene. However Paris 150s are a close substitute and give a great flowing carvey ride. The pictures below show the Vector set up when Flashbacks were run on Bones Reds bearings. The Paris 150 hanger is pretty much the same width.
The Hardware features:
- Woody or White Wood deck with grip tape and laser etched Still Stoked graphic underside
- Trucks Paris 150 black/silver
- Wheels Abec 11 Flashback 75a 70mm
- Bearings Seismic integrated half spacer green Tektons
- Paris 1/8″ risers
- Independent 1.25″ bolts.
