Lacroix Hypertruck™

Chiseled to hair splitting precision out of a huge brick of aerospace 7075 aluminum 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 17mm) axles made to hold a bearing in the wheel pulley, all of which self corrects speed wobbles. 

 

How? 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 shit" 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.

    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™ signficantly reduces that "oh shit" 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™, asymetry of the deck, bushings, width of truck, length of deck, etc. It works on the Nazare™ and Nazare Lonestar™ that have very specific components.
