When building your own skateboard, the truck is one of the most important parts after your deck. Choosing the right truck is a big decision for any skater, and Thunder Trucks are some of the best on the market. Here at Skate Connection, we have everything you need, from complete skateboards, longboards and cruisers to all the parts required to build your own. This includes trucks from all the best brands in the industry, giving you a selection of high-quality trucks to choose from.
The trucks are the middleman between your deck and your wheels, they’re the axle on which your skateboard turns. They’re essentially the things that are responsible for translating your movements into your skateboard’s movements, and they control the way it moves; the way it turns, grinds and ollies. This makes it one of the most important parts of your skateboard, second only to the deck. That’s why it’s important to choose one that’s of high quality and that fits your deck correctly. The right deck will really impact your skating experience and performance.
You can’t put any truck under any deck; it’s extremely important that it’s the right size, to avoid instability and other problems. Your truck should be exactly as wide as your deck, not wider or shorter. This can be hard to figure out, as trucks aren’t listed with the same measurements as decks. Many brands have conversion charts available where they state which size deck corresponds to which size truck, so that’s one easy way to figure it out. Another important aspect to consider when picking a truck is whether you want a high or low one. These perform differently. Steet skaters often prefer low trucks, due to the stability they offer and the fact that they respond easier to your movements. A high truck is compatible with bigger wheels and has a bigger turning radius, making them more suitable for cruising. They’re also practical for taller people, as they allow for quickly pushing the tail to the ground.
If you’re struggling to decide on what trucks you should get, the staff at Skate Connection is always here to offer professional advice and guidance.
