ACE Trucks MFG was established under the umbrella of streetwear giant Diamond Supply Co. in 2006. After founder Joey Tershay (brother of Diamond owner, Nick Tershay) left his longstanding position at Independent Trucks, ACE was launched with a desire to fill a gap which the Tershay brothers saw in the skateboarding industry. Joey’s design for a truck, unreleased during his time with Independent, laid the foundation for ACE’s signature model.
ACE take design cues from popular truck models of the 1980s (a natural influence given Joey Tershay’s time with Indy who dominated the skateboarding market throughout the decade). The tapered gradient of an ACE pivot cup to the truck’s hanger provides excellent response and allows the rider’s weight to be easily distributed which has made the brand to a quickly become a favourite for fans of a loose trucks.
Ace Trucks are a relatively new skateboard truck brand offering a new design aimed to improve all aspects of the standard truck design - turn, grind, feel and performance. Ace Trucks largely come in two heights, Ace Classic and Ace Lo.
Ace refers to their team as Ace Pilots and they have a heavy young crew of skateboarders covering many styles of skateboarding. Oskar Rozenberg, Kevin Rodrigues, Dane Brady, Tom Remillard, Raven Tershy, Ronnie Sandoval, Brian Delatorre, Eli Reed and Brad McClain are some of the Ace Trucks team.
