Featuring a forged baseplate and a hollow kingpin, the Titanium Lights trucks from Thunder are made to take all the abuse you can dish out. Forged Titanium is compression molded, which means it can endure more intense impacts while being lighter for added performance.
Extra-light hollow kingpins additionally make these trucks awesome for ollies and allow easier overall shredding. Thunder Trucks never fail to impress.
The polished finish thunders seem to grind better for me. I have a set of black ones and for some reason they feel a little stickier. I'm sticking with polished from now on.

These trucks are suuuper light and it really helps with ollieing higher. However, it's harder to power through grinds without a lot of wax. Independents are much better with this, possibly because they have a wider surface on the bottom. These trucks also have a weird geometry where the kingpin sticks out almost at the same level with the axle so when you grind the kingpin does too. And the kingpin is ground down to nothing if you do lots of feebles or smiths.
