TRAMPA BARRELS are one of the latest additions to the TRAMPA product line. They replace the SPRINGS & DAMPA's in the Trucks offering a relatively Solid or Firm Steering resistance, great for going fast!
Unlike the springs, there is no 'Pre-Tensioning available' through the spring adjuster when fitting the TRAMPA Barrels. Therefore TRAMPA's BARRELS have until now been a 'one size fits all', but that's all just changed! as its now possible to fit 'Thicker Based Barrel Retainers' which will increase the pre-load tension in the steering...
This is particularilly good for advanced riders & specially those looking for the max in straight line speed! (Ant Wilson!)
Available in the standard 4mm, TRAMPA has introduced 5mm, 6mm & 7mm Barrel Retainers to the range. It is advisable to only change 1 half of the retainers at a time hece these are sold in 'Sets of 4'. Going with too much Pre-tension (7mm Base retainer) will make it more difficult to get an easy carve, but will of course make it much more confidence enhancing to go straight line flat out...!! :-)
