Risers are the pads that go under your trucks to raise your trucks off your board. This keeps you from getting wheel-bite
- what happens when the wheels hit the board when you turn sharply. Risers are usually made of plastic or rubber and vary
in height from a fraction of an inch to three or four inches on all-terrain boards.
Angled Risers are risers that are higher on one end than another -- like a wedge.
The next three illustrations indicate the different placements of angled risers and the benefits of each.
There are some instances when angled risers should NOT be used. Notably when using Randal trucks, which are
designed to give the effect of angled risers, without the risers.
