Theeve’s new Ti-KING trucks feature the same 6/4 titanium axle as the Theeve TiAX trucks, but they are even lighter, sporting the new titanium hollow kingpin which is approximately 55% lighter than traditional steel kingpins.
These new titanium kingpins will be available soon, as will the Ti-KINGS trucks from Theeve.
Quote from Theeve:
As the leader in skate truck technology, Theeve has released another “worlds first”, with its new ground breaking hollow titanium kingpins. Forged from 6/4 aerospace grade titanium, this hollow titanium kingpin is 55% lighter than a regular steel kingpin. The hollow titanium kingpin will be standard issue on the new range of Ti-KINGS trucks to be released in all good skate shops around the world November 2010. They will also be available as an aftermarket replacement part for trucks using old fashioned steel kingpins.
The Ti-KINGS trucks will come with the titanium hollow kingpins, the same 6/4 titanium axles as used on our TiAX trucks, come standard with Bones Hardcore bushings and share the same true-turn geometry of the rest of the Theeve range.
