DESCRIPTION

Choose between grade 8 steel kingpins or if you desire a tighter fit, and a kingpin that is 50% lighter we also make a titanium machined bolt. The titanium bolts have a taper machined into them to lock into the baseplates. 

K5s are made of a stiffer, more durable, and corrosion resistant “7 Series” material.

The Aera K5 is upgraded in each and every way from our previous generations. With a larger and longer pivot mating to an made in house pivot cup, the truck has more stability and accuracy, and the hanger and baseplate have been designed such that they add stiffness and strength to the truck with their highly engineered angles, curves, and features. This is the truck of choice by 2x World Champions Carlos Paixão, Kevin Reimer, and World Champion Patrick Switzer.

The K5 is the newest truck from Aera Trucks, and by far the most advanced to date, and has already proven itself under 2016 IDF World Series Champion Carlos “Guto” Paixão. When trying to out-do the best truck ever made, that has the most race wins, or slide jam podiums we had to go all the way back to start and focus on the details. The K5 is now narrower than our previous hangers and offers a host of more grip- oriented widths going from 164mm up to 184mm. Both the hanger and the baseplate have been optimized through load, material, and CAD testing to be stiffer, and more durable, and allow for more grip on the track. It truly is all in the details of the baseplate and hanger, where we’ve optimized the shape, hole structure,

and angles to produce a truck that is almost 30% stiffer and more rigid than our previous models. Further to development we’ve created an entirely new pivot and pivot cup system that significantly reduces slop, is more durable, and acts as a small suspension damper for up and down movement, while restricting side to side hanger movement to a minimum. The K5 will ship with the new Hardcore Bushings, which feature a SkateOne patented bonded insert that further improves precision and rebound of the truck. We’ve worked hard on this one, and are confident it is the best truck on the market today. 

NOTE: Venom bushings are recommended.
