The Bear Grizzly is the do everything all round truck from Bear Trucks. This truck has been refined more times than the basement Skate mini ramp which if you know robbo its a f#$k load of times. What does this mean? The boys at Bear Trucks have now developed the generation 5 Bear 852 that's been revamped to focus on strength versatility and weight reduction.

The 5th gen truck has a stronger heat treaded axel, revised and less restrictive bushing seat as well as a laser engraved logo. The baseplate now features an 8 hole mounting system to accommodate both old and new school drill patterns. This pattern can also be used to adjust wheelbases by an inch. We’ve also reduced baseplate weight by removing unnecessary material. Strength tested and engineered to perfection, the 5th gen Grizzly 852 is an improvement on an industry standard. It means a longboard truck that is great for hard and fast freeriding, stable at speed but divey if you want to get sideways. The Bear 852 comes with a generally softer style double barrel bushing setup which works straight out of the box from most grommets. The pivot point on the baseplate tends to sit further forward than most reverse kingpin trucks which means you get a slightly longer wheelbase out of the same bolt pattern so you avoid wheelbite on dropthrough boards allowing you to use larger diameter wheels. The hanger is a little off-set allowing you to flip the hanger if you would like to reduce the baseplate angle by 5 degrees, this will take your truck from a nice carving surfy feel at 52 degrees to a 47 degree downhill drag racing beast. These trucks are in the original bad-ass black for those super stealthy rides.

Specialized Casting Formula - Completely new metal formula, the most reliable aluminum alloy on the market. The alloy has been specifically mixed for our trucks and not pulled from some generic melted down block. Each batch is pre tested and approved at our factory before shipping out. In the years of making trucks we’ve been able to try countless variations of compounds and alloys. In the end we’ve settled on virgin 8356 aluminum for all of our castings. We ensure that our sources are free from impurities and provide the best mix of strength, durability and performance in a skateboard truck.

Widened rear baseplate legs - Added thickness to eliminate any possible baseplate warping and to help withstand any heavy impact.

Effective bushing Seat - Fully-wrapped leaning system with bushing base lock-in. This allows you to get extra lean and no turning restrictions. It is compatible with most bushings out there.

Faced Hangers- Bear was one of the very first in the industry to provide machine-faced hangers on all of our products. With the hanger face and axle being perfectly perpendicular your bearings will sit entirely straight within the wheels. This results in a smoother, more precise alignment and reduced stress on the bearings. It’s no wonder so many manufacturers are following in our footsteps.
