Wide vs Narrow Roller Skate Trucks for Park Skating

Wide or narrow roller skate trucks, which one is better? I believe it’s a personal preference as everyone has different goals and skating styles. But for me, I love both!


Here are my thoughts based on my experiences skating both narrow and wide trucks. I had a lot of questions on my Instagram and YouTube posts, so the questions I didn’t get around to answering in my video, I will pin in the first comment below.


Note: Discotrux are designed for stability (which is what I mainly use them for) and not specifically for grinding. However, you can grind on coping and rails if you cut down your kingpin. I have a how to video on my YouTube Channel here.


Shorty (Christine Murray) started roller skating in 2009 when she joined the Canberra Roller Derby League. Over her 10-year roller derby career, she skated for Team Australia, Team Korea, and Gotham Roller Derby. After retiring and moving to South Korea, Shorty expanded her roller skating passion to park skating and continued teaching via her YouTube Channel, Shorty’s Skate Series, to give back to the community. Connect with her on Instagram and check out her YouTube channel for skate park tips and tutorials!
