Bear Generation 5 Grizzlies allow you to skate anything

Billy Meiner, Dillon Stephens and Kyle Martin Putting the 5th Gen Grizzlies to the test

Meet the redesigned Bear Grizzly 8.52 which focus on strength, versatility and weight reduction. The 5th generation truck has a stronger heat treaded axel, revised and less restrictive bushing seat. The baseplate now accommodates both old and new school drill patterns also allowing you to adjust wheelbases by an inch. And as per every new truck generation, the guys at bear have figured out a way to trim more fat and reduce the weight – now just under a pound.



The new trucks feature:

  • Specialized Casting Formula – new aluminum alloy formula specifically mixed for the company
  • Widened rear baseplate legs – Added thickness to eliminate any possible baseplate warping and to help withstand any heavy impact.
  • Effective bushing Seat – Fully-wrapped leaning system with bushing base lock-in compatible with a wide range of 3rd party bushings. This allows you to get extra lean and no turning restrictions.
