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.

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
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.

Thunder Lights Skateboard Trucks - crossfade yellow/green (148)
Sweet ride, sweet colors. Lightweight but feel super durable. I don't get the feeling I'll be needing a replacement pair soon.

Thunder Lights Skateboard Trucks - crossfade yellow/green (148)
They stick sometimes but other than that I actually like them better than ccp trucks. Feels like I get higher with less effort. Either way my dollars will never go to the china communist party for trucks again.

Thunder Trucks Lights Skateboard Trucks - polished lights (151)
These 151s are great light and turn great I’m very happy with I’m a tinder fan I do always add bones bushing but they are a great combo . I went from 148 up to the 151s and the trucks give more stability on crooked grinds and ledges

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.
