Just went to the park to try these out. And as soon as I got there (and I mean AS SOON as I got there), a sponsored kid I know wanted to play skate. So played him twice and drew 1-all. This is after skating nothing but Indys for over 10 years and not even adjusting the kingpin of the new trucks with a spanner. I literally had not even taken a single push on these trucks before stepping up. Also landed a tre first go. I think what I’m trying to say is that I am basically one of the most adaptable and greatest skateboarders in existence. You’re welcome.
I got them after watching that Professor Schmitt 9 Club saying if you want to spin flips you need skinny wheels and light trucks, and these were super light and thought would make a change from Thunders.
What trucks did you come from?
Switched from 139 Indys to these.
Stock. Usually ride Bones Blue (Soft) and with no adjustment they felt about same, a little stiffer. Slight problem with re-centering but maybe they’ll wear in and sort themselves out. But will probably switch to the Bones
Fine, got used to them after 1 hit, felt same as Indys
Amazing. Flips real easy. Did a load of tricks I haven’t done in years first session.
4 out of 5 stars. No complaints. Stoked they make it easier to flip.Feel similar to Indy Hollows.
Will update review once I get pop back and can ollie high enough to scratch a crook.
Rad! But I am however totally bemused at how you don’t feel the difference between these and Indys. Thunders and Indys are the total ends of truck spectrum with balance.
Regarding decent trucks anyway. Plenty of shit trucks in between.
Ok, so googled them and a pic from above shows them to be not true Thunder dimensions, the hangers are not over the bolt holes like usual, seems these are a new design that are closer to indy dimensions. Figures why you didn’t notice much.
Wow did not notice that. Look how the truck holes are it’s like it sits dead centre. Whereas with the Indys it’s skewed towards middle of the board. So the thunders will give you about 1.5cm or 0.5" less wheelbase compared to the Indys. Although tbh I have never noticed wheelbase making any difference to me.
