By altering the number of layers of material that we add into the mould, we are are able to tune the final performance of the TRAMPA decks relevant to the riders weight height & ability. Please use the FLEXOMETER above as a guide to help you choose the right ply board for you. TRAMPA's FLEXOMETER information is to be interpreted as a 'GUIDE ONLY' as there is no fixed rule as to which is the exact right deck for you. The weight, height & ability of the rider will all help determine which is the right sort of deck for you, but of course the most important factor is personal preference as to how the rider wants their deck to feel.... Some riders like it flexi, some like it firm, some like it very very stiff.... It depends on what you are doing on your board, i.e. freestyle, freeride, boarder-cross, altho there is guidance there is no right & no wrong just personal preference but when purchasing a deck from TRAMPA we want to make sure you get it exactly the way you want it! so if your stuck as to which one is the best for you them please drop as a line...
Be it for Kiteboarding or Mountainboarding TRAMPA's 12mm AXLE Skate style Trucks offer slightly more strength & durability than the regular 10mm Skate Trucks & are therefore the perfect option for all larger sized riders seeking a lightweight introductory Deck! The 12mm Axle is one long piece. It is re-enforced & supported by a lightweight FORGED Alloy Body that smothers the Axle, creating the Hanger. Hollowing the steel Axle drastically reduces weight. Heat treating the Hollow Axle replaces the lost strength from the hollowing process. The alloy body of the TRAMPA Hanger & the Embossed Baseplate are high quality Bead polished & laquered to give the best protection against the harsh elements.
The Pivot cup pushes into the Pivot Cup Housing of the Baseplate & Black 98a Rubber Bushings sit within their housings cushioning the metal parts of the skate truck, protecting them from rubbing against each other & allowing the movement in the truck which in turn converts to steering. These little rubber parts get squashed alot & often suffering harsh environments they incur a lot of abuse, ultimately they will fail, so in order to maintain max performance from your Trucks you to need service/replace these parts every now & then over time...
A NICKLE PLATED kingpin pushes through the Baseplate connecting into the Hanger. This can be upgraded to TITANIUM at a discounted price using the attributes in your purchase. The TITANIUM KINGPIN IS HALF THE WEIGHT of steel & never rusts! You can also purchase a Marine Grade Stainless steel (MGST) Bolt kit at a discounted price with your purchase, TRAMPA Bolts will never rust on you! Accompanied by the 44mm axle spacer & 1mm shim washers to position the bearings in the exactly, a 3/8ths of an inch MGST Nylock Axle nut tightens perfectly on holding the wheel in the sweet spot on the axle.
Be it Mountainboard or Kiteboard, TRAMPA's Hollowed & Heat Treated, 12mm Steel Axle Skate Trucks are the recommended Truck choice for kiteboard riders. 12mm Skate Trucks need mounting agle of 15º in order to steer correctly & you will see them fitted to the TRAMPA 15º decks as this is the perfect mounting angle for them.
Hollowing the steel axle reduces weight drastically & the heat treating process add's in extra strength. To retain as much strength as possible the axle is 1x long Axe running the entire width of the hanger, it is positioned into the mould as the alloy is casted around it. The alloy body of the TRAMPA Hanger & the Embossed Baseplate are high quality Bead polished & lacquered to give the best protection against the harsh elements they will be used in.

Skate Trucks are the lightest ATB Truck option. Due to their lightness you could argue they're over all strength is compromised & arguably they are not as strong as other truck systems in the TRAMPA Truck options, so this trucks suggested use is said to be more suitable for lighter weight riders, i.e. small sized teenagers who require a lighter deck to steer & of course who will not push as many forces through the setup naturally. Larger riders should not use these trucks without being aware of this...
However its often the case that large sized kiteboard riders often choose to ride these trucks simply because they are so much lighter than any of the other trucks, the fact that they may bend over time or even break under seriously heavy usage (They often get dropped from great heights when kiteboarding always land awkwardly!!) bears no odds to them because they want the lightest of equipment & at only £70 a pair they are cheap to replace....
Build your own Custom TRAMPA Wheel to fit to 12mm Axles - HYPA, SUPERSTAR, 8 Inch MEGASTAR, 9 Inch PRIMO or 9 INCH DEEP DISH MEGASTAR Wheels! Awesome selection from 5 Inch to 9 Inch, on & off road! Amazing!!
The 6 Spoke HYPA Wheel is the lightest & strongest plastic injected Hub / Wheel on the market today! Its produced using original DuPont ingredients & the best Injection Moulding machinery, no quality expense is spared during the production of this amazingly strong little hub!
During testing the HYPA Wheels performance surpassed all expectations. :-) This little 8 inch wheel proved to be so strong, when the "Crash Test Dummies" (i mean the Mountainboard Team Riders) inflated their tyres well beyond factory recommendations! (Tut-Tut Naughty-Naughty!) The extra inflation resulted in substantially faster roll speeds, giving them the extra time in the air to complete their huge freestyle moves & still have time land in 1 piece! I'm pleased to tell you there were no explosions from the over inflation to report whilst breaking a HYPA HUB is just about unheard of, something extraordinary has to go wrong before these hubs do! If you have seen some of the crazy stuff the MTB & KTB teams have put the equipment through over the years, with genuinely almost no problems to report, you will have no doubt of the HYPA WHEELS performance capabilities.
HYPA Hubs are available in loads of coordinating colour combinations its difficult to make the decision as to which option you like the most! You can choose from naked Matt Black or White to Painted Gloss Red or Gloss Blue with Painted Black or White TRAMPA Logo's or Printed in Winter or Army Camo, the choice is all yours... :-)
TRAMPA's HYPA hubs are held together using Marine Grade (A4) Stainless steel Nuts & Bolts & will never rust on you. Our bolts are perfect for bad conditions. Not only will the nuts & Bolts never rust on you all the Bolts used by TRAMPA have been dipped in a special Blue Locking Paste, whilst all the Nuts that TRAMPA uses are fitted with the world renowned Nyloc nylon nut locking system, all of these no expense spared small details ensure you get the absolute best product possible! To help prevent you from purchasing imitations, TRAMPA's HYPA Hubs are always TRAMPA embossed between the spokes proving our top quality!
Your tyre requirements will be defined by the surface you are riding on, however you will be pleased to read that all of the HYPA Hubs will fit into any of the 7 inch Tyres or 8 Inch Tyres on the TRAMPA website. TRAMPA Hubs are also compatible with all known 8 Inch Tyres that are currently on the market, including any other Mountainboard or Dirt Scooter brand.
TRAMPA’s very own & genuine ABEC 5 rated Bearings, push perfectly into the 'Centre Set' bearing housings either side of the hub. The bearings are supported internally by use of a 'Bearing Support Spacer' sitting on the axle in the middle of the hub, guaranteeing the position of the bearings & the smoothest spin rate possible. TRAMPA's Bearings will fit onto 9.525mm, 10mm & 12mm Axles. The metric measurement of 9.525mm, is equal to the US Imperial measurement 3/8ths of 1 inch. Bearing Reducer Sleeves downsize your 12mm Bearings to fit onto 10mm Metric Scooter Axles or 9.525mm (3/8ths of an inch) Imperial Skate Axles. Bearings can be supplied at 50% of the usual retail price when purchased with a wheel... 2x Bearings cost just £2.50 per pair (usually £2.50 each), resulting in a £10 saving per set of 8x bearings, 8 bearings are enough for a set of 4 wheels!
TRAMPA's 200mm x 50mm - 8 Inch wonder wheels are the primary choice sized wheel for many inventors developing sporting equipment requiring very strong whilst very light weight, small pneumatic wheels for their applications to work correctly. Mountainboards, Kiteboards, 2Wheel, Dirt-Scooters, Bikes Skates, Sledges, Trikes, Skikes, Model Planes, Single Seater Planes, Dog Sledding, Dirt Skiing, Transportation Chariots & now lots of exciting electronic applications all due to come to the market very soon, all require an 8 inch wheel for their best movement... If you have a wheeled project on the go & you would like to fit TRAMPA's 8 inch wheels onto it, then in your design you need to use a 12mm axle & you will need to give an axle mounting space of 34.2mm in order to fit the TRAMPA Hubs correctly.
RATCHET BINDINGS are the Mountain Board rider’s primary choice of binding! The Ratchet Buckle mechanism allows you to easily position the binding to fit most adult sized shoes or boots. There is a release clip on the top of the Ratchet Buckle which works just the same as snowboard binding does, that release the pressure & allows you to step out...
The main Foot-Strap has a special 'Lug or locator' on the top of the Foot-Strap to house a special Hook that protrudes from the underside of Ratchet Buckle. This hook presses into the 'Lug' on the top of the Foot-strap preventing any sideways movement in the connection of the Strap & Ratchet Buckle
The Ratchet Buckle connects with a special M5 Star nut & M5x8mm Countersunk bolt & the Ratchet is mounted on the top of the Main Foot Strap. The LADDER STRAP Positions on the outside of the foot & feeds into the Ratchet Buckle. Levering the Ratchet buckle brings the two straps together. The Ratchet Buckle locks each time you lift the buckle tightening the two straps together until you have a snug but not tight connection over the top of your foot. The release clip can be tuff to move specially of your bindings have been ratcheted tight.
Ratchet Bindings work at their absolute optimum when combined with TRAMPA Heel Straps. HEEL STRAPS Completely lock your feet into any of the TRAMPA bindings to make you feel at one with the deck. When using Heel Straps you are 100% committed to the ride & by doing so you gain so much more control over the board.
With 3 pairs of different length Ladder Straps to choose from, the TRAMPA Heel Straps easily adjust to fit to any sized shoe that comfortably fits onto a Mountain Board . A CAMLOCK BUCKLE on one side of the strap is used to Lock the Ladder Strap on one side of your foot whilst a Ratchet Buckle is used on the other side for easy tightening/loosening adjustment. The Ratchet Buckle easily tightens the Ladder into the Heel Straps so that your foot is locked into a comfortable position!.
TRAMPA Heel Straps are universally fitting and are supplied with a Marine Grade Stainless Steel FITTING KIT as standard, so only take a few minutes to assemble.
ALL TRAMPA Bindings are assembled using a Marine grade A4 Stainless Steel hardware. The L-Brackets are 'multi positional' allowing the rider the exact foot-stance they require.

TRAMPA's GRAB HANDLE incorporates a Light but stiff Alloy center covered in a thick coat of BLACK EVA FOAM, providing a firm comfortable when grabbed in the hand. Fixing a Grab Handle to your board allows the rider to achieve 'Board-Off maneuvers', making it a must have accessory for all top level freestyle Kite Boarders. Fixing the Grab Handle to the board also slightly stiffens the flex of the deck increasing performance as you improve as a rider!
TRAMPA Grab Handles are available in a selection of coordinating colours with the rest of the TRAMPA product range. If you are retro fitting your Grab Handle, remember to Countersink the mounting holes on the underside of the deck, this will ensure the Marine Grade Stainless Steel Countersunk Bolts (which can be purchased at a discounted price with this purchase) will fit flush with the surface of the deck & will not get hung up on any protruding objects you may ride over. The Grab Handle is also a great accessory to have fitted to your deck when carrying your kit down the beach or to hard to reach places when seeking the perfect ride!!
