Sector 9 is the original longboard skateboard for the surf, skate and snowboarding lifestyles.
The patented design of the Gullwing Sidewinder Trucks have been turning heads since they were first introduced. What makes these trucks so special is that they have two pivot points which allows the trucks to turn twice as sharp and fast as a standard truck. This double action pivot allows the rider to generate speed using their own turning momentum. The Gullwing Sidewinder 2 trucks are a sidewalk surfers dream. Ask anyone that has ridden them and the truth will be told.
From the Manufacturer
The story of the nineball starts in our La Jolla backyard in 1993. At the time our house consisted of a bunch of good friends, a half pipe, pool table, ping pong table and shaping room all just across the street from some nice smooth hills down to the reefs. One of our friends from Hawaii who used to call people "nine balls" all the time in a friendly razzing sort of way, called up on the phone one day to see what was going on at the house. He got the answering machine and said "What's going on over there at Sector 9?" which to him and us meant a house full of nine balls. The message on the machine was heard and the name not only had a nice ring to it but seemed fitting as well so it stuck. The interest had been apparent from everyone who saw us skate by so we started making skateboards in our backyard. Lots of learning and a couple evictions later we were forced to move into our first warehouse in what would become the Sector 9 skateboard factory. Since then we have continued to push our designs and materials to their limits in order to offer the best quality skateboard for all types of riding

Turns on a dime
ALL PROVIDED YOU HAVE A DECK SUITABLE FOR THESE TRUCKS.
-Increases wheelbase by around 4 inches (not too serious concidering the puny turn radius)
-HIGHLY reccomend freestyle deck, pintails and the such will have wheelbite before even half of the turn.
-(coincides with afore mentioned comment) mounted below the deck there is major clearance and a long distance to kick, so get a drop through or Maybe a drop deck with risers (if its tol low, the board with scrape.) Enough Risers to clear the wheels on a pintail you would be riding around 6" off the ground.
***-all of these are minor issues and easily compensated for.
Bout these a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, it was well worth it. Went from not being able to turn a sidewalk, to a 180 in a parking slot. Its very stable at full-speed/flat ground and minor hills, i havent attemped a major hill yet. I probably wouldnt reccomend it. Be wary of gravel and water when turning sharp. Ive nailed the ground numerous times after going through a small puddle or gravel. Even with soft wheels. All in all these are great trucks. I highly reccomend them. I built a budget board, bones red bearings (great for the price), ztuntz deck, generic 78a 76mm wheels, and these trucks, $120 for everything, i cant complain. Also, torque the kingpin nuts on both kingpins down quite a bit. Out of box its rediculously touchy. Id turn when i kick. Tightened down, it provides stabilty at speed, and responds quickly and accurately when engaging in a light or sharp turn.
If you actually read all that, i thank you. You are doing your research. Well done.
Update. I love to slide on this board, i can slide without taking up to much of the road and the trucks make it easy to send me into a slide i have 76 mm 80a wheels i know i could go harder but sometimes i feel the wheels sliding out from under me if I'm carving hard. if you are planning on doing a double drop through get the 10 inch wide ones to prevent wheel bite. I put I set mine up with drop through and I had to shave out some of the board and put on nylon nylon spacers to prevent wheel bite.
