Carver CX Mini 5.0 truck
The Carver CX Mini is Carver´s surfskate truck for small cruiser skateboards.
Pumping, cutbacks and small snaps on your hike through the city are pretty common and surfing maneuvres will be your daily routine!
As small brother of the Carver CX.4 the Carver CX Mini truck system is developed for small cruiser skateboard decks under 8.5" Inch in width.
The geometry of the Carver CX Mini is tighter than the big Carver CX.4 6.5 surfskate truck. This means that the turns will be tighter as well! The perfect surfkate truck for your mini cruiser skateboard!
The original Surfskate since 1996.
It all started one quiet summer in Venice, California in 1995. Greg Falk and Neil Carver had been surfing all winter, and were pumped to surf the warmer waters of the Breakwater during the long days of summer, but it was as flat as a puddle. Not even a longboard ripple to justify getting wet. So, like the many generations before them, they took to the streets with skateboards in search of hills to surf. The historic neighborhoods of Venice and Santa Monica are a veritable skatepark of steep alleys and banks, and as they dropped in on those asphalt waves they were struck with how unlike surfing it was.
There needed to be some lateral sway, sort of like dragging the nose sideways while still in full contact with the pavement. In order to achieve this, there needed to be some kind of flexible arm that allowed for this lateral movement, and after numerous sketches, they welded up the first Carver prototype truck in the derelict garage behind Neil’s house.
