Baseplate Style

Forged - Forged baseplates are compression molded, making them lighter, stronger, and more impact resistant in comparison to cast or poured-mold baseplates. Forged materials have a tighter molecular structure, which provides a stronger ride with less material. Forging also eliminates most common manufacturing defects and imperfections.

Axle/Kingpin Style

Hollow Kingpin - Lightening the load, hollow kingpins reduce weight for lighter feeling trucks, while still maintaining strength in this critical area.

Origin

Made in the USA - Made in San Francisco, California

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

I have tried many trucks over the years and I always found myself going back to thunders. For some reason, I learned more tricks and more board control than any other. I say give them a try and found out for yourself.

hi, will the thunder 151 (not the 149) will work on 8.5 deck
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 5/9/2018
Yes it will work however your trucks will be slightly wider than the width of your board.

Asked by Andreas on 5/3/2017
What wheel size you recommend ?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 5/3/2017
Wheel size would be personal preference but most people stick around 53-55mm wheels. If you go any large we would recommend a riser pad

Asked by Sands on 2/25/2017
It says "non-compatible risers" and under it says "girl" as one. Does this mean these trucks will not fit a "Girl" deck?
Answered by Danny M (Tactics Employee) on 2/27/2017
This just means that risers from those companies will not be compatible with those trucks. The trucks will work on a Girl deck, just not Girl risers.

Asked by Joe MFS on 6/15/2016
I'm a long term Thunder lover, I'm after the lightest weight, low trucks you make for my 8 inch deck.
Answered by Elijah W (Tactics Employee) on 6/20/2016
Then your best bet is the Hollow Lights in the 145(lo)

Asked by Caleb on 5/22/2016
Will these fit on on drop through deck?
Answered by Elijah W (Tactics Employee) on 5/23/2016
These trucks are meant for a skateboard but can work with a drop through longboard if you would like.
