Has anyone ridden the Venture Truck HI Titanium 5.6's?

How have they gone compared to a Thunder?

Will they extend the WB out further that a thunder hollow forged as well?
[close]

Rode the 5.8 Titanium on 8.25 and it was too beastly for me, even with the reduced weight. That's just me pairing trucks incorrectly. Would like to do the 5.6 Titanium if they ever come back in stock.

Answer about WB here - https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=108580.msg3186379#msg3186379
Thunder Hollow Lights - +3.25"
Venture Titanium - +3.4"

Both are good trucks, swap between the 2 depending on deck WB and kick steepness.
[close]

Thanks for the info and feedback. I have the Thunders and Indys in Hollow lights. Thinking whether I add another option to my set lol. I usually get a 14.25 WB deck. But always trying new things.

Indys - not my jam
Thunders - For decks with WB longer than 14.25, are short (31.6) or have really steep kicks
Ventures - For decks with short WB (14), are long (31.8 and up) or if I want to try giving my worn out deck a 2nd lease of life
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

I'm pretty sure that only the raw are US (ish) trucks aside from kingpin and axles.

If you like the hollow thunders and Indys I would definitely go vhollow.

The 56 raw is heavier than Indy 149 (bigger truck) and way heavier than thunder raw 146 (another bigger truck)

Like 40 gram difference between the thunder and the cast ventures of equal size if I remember.

Venture is a statement to me really.

I give a shit about high speed. I give a shit about what's left of US labor.

Taking a page from Thunders book there (they don't do it too often; Team titaniums with that red sticker and matching bushings).

Sorry if this is a question that has already been addressed, but how do the Venture High 5.8s fare on anything larger than 8.5?
I just purchased an egg shaped 9.125 board and am planning on chucking the 5.8s on it. Am I fucking up? let me know cheers

They will work but you would be better off with 6.1s

You can basically knock off 25g per truck with a forged baseplate and hollow kingpin.  My V-hollow 5.8s were 355g.  6.1 V-hollow should be right around 360g

Thanks for the info! The drought forced my hand a bit, but Iím very happy with the standards so far. I like that the kingpin nut is flush and I am not getting any wheel bite. Also, it wasnít until I switched out my old forged hollow indys that I realized one of them had a slightly bent axle. I thought something was off, but I suspected I was imagining it. Sure enough, after setting up the ventures, my wheels are rolling much better. I did that axle wobble test and confirmed the bent axle on my old trucks, as well. Iím surprised, I donít jump down big shit anymore. Hopefully these standard axles will be more resistant to bending.

Yeah I'm pretty sure my old 144s have a bent axle and I also don't jump down anything super high. You'll like the standard ventures. They hold up great and the pinch is something else. Not to mention stability.

New to the Venture truck game. I love them so far, and they work really well on my current deck. Its an 8.5 X 32.25 14.25 WB workshop board. Whether I stay at the same size or size down to 8.38 (trying to keep same length) what kind of WB should I be shoot for?

I've had boards with long wheel bases and anything over 14.5 is has not been ideal. As well, I'm digging the current deck so I'd like to have something similar as far as WB but thinking of slimming it down (trying to get those treflips consistent/proper). Should I stick to the 14.25 (hard to come by in the dims I'm wanting) or would 14.375 (deluxe/ Polar seem to be running this WB a lot) be worthy for my trucks? Thanks guys!!

In a similar dilemma too. I want to get back on Ventures but I've grown accustomed to Thunders after riding them in a Santa Cruz deck with steep kicks + concave. The switch shouldn't be too hard but Ventures adding 3.25" - 3.5" to the WB is fucking with me. The deck is starting to razor but still has life; damn truck madness is stopping me from swapping to a fresh deck.

Curious if anyoneís tried inverted kingpins on Ventures? If so what brand and overall thoughts? Worth it? Does it mess with the Geometry at all? Love Ventures but as I grind them down my kingpin makes Smith grinds on ledges harder especially if theyíre concrete or granite. I donít have any issues until I skate them for 4 months or more and itís just that trick specifically that gives me issues.

Anyone know if venture has plans on releasing a 5.8 or 6.1 hollow light? Would be the perfect truck if they both came with hollow hangers.

I'm intrigued, but I'm lazy and don't have sufficient tools to knock out the kingpin and nut.

Naw. Itís a whole new truck. From what it looks like itís the same inverted kingpin that they have been running on thunders (see Ishods storyís on Ig). Trying to hit up a friend to try and get a set.
