Known for being one of the few brands that create extremely durable skate trucks, Royal truly delivers when it comes to quality and durability of their products.
Royal trucks have been around for almost two decades, thanks to the founders who thought about creating and adding trucks in their roster of skate products. The brand was founded by Guy Mariano and Rudy Johnson in 1999, and currently part of the Girl Distribution. After being sponsored as team riders for Girl, these pros decided that it was about time to be involved in the creative process of one of the company's leading skate brands.
In 2011, the founders decided to re-brand with the help of the new art director, Christian Molin. They considered the skate truck as a piece of industrial design which is based on how the product is made; where a mold is used to shape the form by pouring extremely hot molten metal. They used old school typography to go with the new design and added a crown to signify 'quality' and the brand's commitment to creating awesome product for their core market.
The brand's team riders are more than just individuals they sponsor, but these are the guys whom they found already using Royal trucks even before they hire and included them in their ads. The current team includes Corey Kennedy, Justin Eldridge, Mike Carroll, Jerry Hsu, Mikemo Capaldi, Guy Mariano, Jeron Wilson, Vincent Alvarez, Jesus Fernandez, Daryl Angel, Jordan Maxham, Daniel Espinosa and Jose Rojo.
Everybody knows the renowned 'Guaranteed for Life' of Royal trucks. But this does not include the usual wear and tear of trucks accrued over periods of hard shredding. They will replace any truck that breaks due to material or manufacturing defect. You will also be required to return the product/s and a copy of the sales receipt in order for the returns process to commence. If in case the exact model is no longer in stock, a similar truck with the same shape and size will be sent as a replacement. The processing of returns usually takes two weeks.
Like most skate brands, Royal is no stranger to the increasing demand for other items related to the sport. From apparel to accessories, many brands have delved into these products in order to keep their target market's loyalty.
Royal have introduced their new hardgoods line to complement their trucks, starting with their keychain tool, bearings and riser. They have also produced their 'Set-Up Kit' which contains all the necessary accessories that skaters would need when getting a new setup.
Their soft goods line also had an expansion which involves new designs for hats, hoodies, beanies and backpacks. Staying updated is crucial if you are a true-blue Royal fan!
