The Tensor Mag Light skateboard trucks feature a hollow kingpin and axle to shave weight. The magnesium hanger and baseplate further reduce weight while maintaining the same strength as steel. The result is a truck that's 29% lighter than a traditional steel truck, but just as strong. What this means for you is easier ollies and a much lighter skateboard. That's a plus. A big plus.
Hollow Axle & Kingpin
Set of 2 Trucks
Hollow Axle & Kingpin - Hollow axle trucks cut down on the materials used in the axle, so your trucks feel lighter. Hollow kingpins further reduce weight while still maintaining strength in this critical area.
Risers from the following brands are not compatible with the baseplates of these trucks.
I like low trucks, but like to keep the bushings loose enough to still turn. I tried indy hollow lows, but the bushings would always tear if you rode the trucks loose at all (I like to ride transition mostly). I ended up shaving them down a bit, but they still tore after a while.
I switched to these and they are great. I can use bones hardcore bushings and they fit fine, even on the lows. it took a minute to get used to how light they are compared to the indys, but now I notice I can ollie higher and the board doesn't hurt as much when it lands on me.

Tensor Mag Light Skateboard Trucks - silver (5.5)
Tensor trucks generally have bad reviews on the internet but as a beginner I wanted the lightest trucks to help with my ollies. I was not disappointed and actually surprised -- the trucks were not just amazingly light but turned really well. I switched the bushings to Bones hard to help even more with ollies and stability since I'm a full grown adult. Can't say much about grinding since I don't do that yet.

Light but solid

I bought these after getting thunder hollow lights and not liking the insane response rate the thunders have. I like doing big jumps and ledges and I feel the way the thunders respond makes it harder to land but I am a very very picky skater so that is my very analytical personal opinion. These mag lights are the best and they're lighter and even look cleaner and more solid in their overall look feel and design. Expensive but they last long and are worth it, get them!
Amazingly light. Been riding tensor mags for close to a decade, never had a problem. If you can spare the extra change it's worth it.

Tensor Mag Light Skateboard Trucks
These trucks are awesome! Weight: I weighed the trucks before putting them on my my deck and they were just as advertised... 231 grams. Quality: Definitely well built. No rough machining or casting. Bushings: I first tried them with the original bushings and the turning response was excellent. I was quick to change the bushings as I do with every set of trucks I've owned. I prefer super tight trucks, so I changed out the bushings with Bones HardCore Hard skate bushings. Note - Bushings/truck tightness is by far a personal preference. Grinding: Haven't had any problems and I feel as if they grind as well or better as major competitors. Overall: I give Tensor Trucks 5 stars. I have read some very negative reviews about Tensor Trucks and do not understand what the issue is? Tensor Trucks are amazing and I can't ever see buying anything different. Skating for over twenty years, I have owned a great number of trucks and must say these are worth the money. Go ahead and splurge a few extra bucks because you won't regret it. The only drawback I have had since skating Tensors is that I did have to adjust my skating a bit in regards to flip tricks. The lack of weight makes the board flip easier and faster. In the end, the lack of weight is a real advantage!
