About The Brake Boys

The Brake Boys is a small startup company founded in Corvallis that has invented the first universal braking mechanism for all longboards that aims to make longboarding a safer sport.

Safety

The Brake Boys want to make parents feel comfortable giving their kids a longboard, knowing that their child is safely riding around with a board that has a built-in braking mechanism.

Brake Boys

Community

Longboarders around campus love to interact with each other, show off what kind of longboard they are riding, exchange tips on good hills to ride down, and establish a friendship. The Brake Boys want to capture this idea and promote it through our brand and website. The Brake Boys hope that by providing a braking mechanism to safely stop, the longboarding community will grow because more people will be willing to try the sport rather than deem it dangerous.

Health

The Brake Boys are also focused on improving healthy habits. Longboarding is a great way to stay in shape and get outdoors, especially during COVID-19. The Brake Boys want to make college students feel comfortable riding a longboard around a busy campus just as they would riding a bike. 

Installation

The Brake Boys Truck Stop System replaces the current trucks on your longboard. Installation can be done in three easy steps:

First

Remove the Axie Nuts on both sides of the old longboard truck and remove your wheels. Place the wheels on The Brake Boys Truck Stop System and fasten the Axie Nuts to make sure the wheels

stay in place.

Second

Unscrew the four screws that attach the base plate to your longboard. This will remove your old trucks from your board. Align The Brake Boys Truck Stop System’s trucks with the holes in your longboard and re-screw the four screws to secure the base

plate onto your board.

Third

Adjust the length of Brake Pedal so that the user can easily activate the Brake system while in their natural riding motion.
