What makes Japanese brand Challenger interesting is its involvement in activities other than just designing the usual fashion items. It has firm roots in motorcycle culture and many of its crew also take part in skateboarding. In the long history of the skateboarding culture, perhaps these might be the first trucks that were ornamented by engravings. The intricate design gives a wood print like appearance with No Pain, No Gain engraved on the bottom. There is not much information on these trucks but it looks like these could have been engraved by hand. Stay tuned as these will be dropping on Sunday, January 1st, 2012 at Challenger store in Tokyo.
