Thunder has been selling top-notch skateboard equipment since 1986. If you are in the market for new skateboard trucks, then you will not be disappointed with Thunder’s selection. Made of strong titanium, Thunder skateboard trucks are ultra lightweight and have an amazing quick turning response. Their trucks maintain a high level of stability, and will last for years to come!

Skateboard trucks are the metal T-shaped pieces that mount onto the underside of the skateboard and keep your skateboard wheels and bearings securely attached to the deck. They are a key component when you want to create your own skateboard. Skateboard trucks are composed of several different parts: axles, hangers, kingpins, and bushings. All these parts impact your skateboard’s performance.

The type and size of skate trucks you choose directly affect your stability, and what tricks you can and can’t do on your skateboard. Choosing and maintaining the right skateboard trucks is also key to avoiding wheel bite, which happens when your wheels rub against your board and cause you to stop on impact during a trick or turn. Trucks can easily be adjusted to perform tighter turns or tricks on your board. You can also choose softer bushings for easy turning, or hard bushings for stiff turning. How loose or tight you keep your trucks really depends on what you skate.
