Features

Axle/Kingpin Style

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.

Baseplate Style

Forged - Forged baseplates are compression molded making them lighter, stronger, and more impact resistant compared to cast or poured-mold baseplates. Forging also eliminates the most common manufacturing defects and imperfections.

Non-Compatible Risers

Risers from the following brands are not compatible with the baseplates of these trucks.

Arbor, Diamond, Dooks, Girl, Independent, Loaded, Paris, Rayne, Sector 9
Sizing Reference

Note - Every skate truck brand represents their sizing a little differently, so it's easy to get confused. Take a look at this graphic and then reference the size chart.

They very lightweight and I really like how they are built. Only thing I don’t like are the bushings but because I’m a beginner and factory bushings are too soft, it would be great i Tactics sells Thunder Bushings

If you want trucks that fit the board size they are designed for, Thunders are the ticket. Perfect turning, best stock bushings out there. Beautiful trucks.

From Indy to Ace to Thunder, wont look back!

They are very stable but you have to kick turn more than an Indy, it all depends on what you want to do. For me Thunders are the PERFECT trick, flip, ollie trucks, due to the design they do not crash the base plate like Indy's (this is a preference) and they are THE most stable trucks I have ridden and the only trucks I can ride (6'2" 230lbs) without having to replace the bushings. These are my go to trucks going forward!

It seems like it's just me, but I struggled with these trucks for 5 months before just giving up and moving on. They are really nice, well made, and light. I personally just can't ride them. I've always been a Krux/Indy guy, so I like higher trucks, and don't mind the weight of a standard indy. There's just something off about the turn and feel of these Thunders (My first pair ever BTW). Tried different bushings, tightening/loosening. Could never get used to them. Felt like the break in took weeks. I thought I was just crazy, but I just swapped to a pair of venture highs and I feel sane again. literally 20-25 minute break in, and everything back to normal for me. Maybe I need to try a regular pair of thunders and see how that goes, but these hollow lights are just not for me.

Never going back to independent.

I've used independents for years. Especially when their "mids" dropped. I made the switch to thunder because I was basically making one out independent forged baseplate (I didn't like the inverted kingpin, but feel in love with the height)and a mid hanger. Now I have what I've been looking for. Perfect height and weight for me. Absolutely the best. What more needs to be said? They're thunders. Go out and skate.

Asked by Hugo on 8/20/2017
I usually ride 8.25 but occasionally will step down to 8.1. Will the 147's work for me ??
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 8/24/2017
The 147s would work fine or the 148s, the trucks would just stick out the smallest amount on each side with an 8.1.
