What is the truck?

Skateboard Truck

Skateboard trucks are basically the axles of your board. They hold the wheels on the board, and allow you to turn. The four parts of the truck are the hangar, kingpin, bushing and the base plate. Trucks can be adjusted to be loose or tight, depending on individual preference. Lots of skateboarders agree that for doing tricks, a tighter truck make balance easier.
