New limited edition Paris V2 Macaron trucks in the blue and pink Macaroon colorways dropped September 13th. These forbidden snacks feature all you’ve grown accustomed to from Paris V2s in limited colors that will really make your setup pop.
Paris Truck Co. dropped new limited edition colors of their venerable V2 truck last week as part of a lineup they’ve cleverly dubbed “Les Macarons”. The new colors, Blue Macaron and Pink Macaron, feature pastel baby-blue and baby-pink colors reminiscent of the popular French desert, Macarons.
Over the years, it seems, trucks have been decreasing in width. Back in the original days of longboarding, way back in the early 2000s, wide hangers up to 210mm were looked favorably upon because they were believed to be more stable. And that’s true- wider hangars are less responsive and they’re great for going fast in straight lines.
But that’s not downhill anymore. Now, we’re talking technical downhill/freeride courses where fast braking and deadly quick rail to rail action is required. And for that, shorter hangars are necessary and beneficial.
