Yea man.  Ti titanium is like $3.10 a pound and this is barley over 1 pound.  Ridiculous.

heard about them at my local shop. the consensus was "ridiculous", but also "get the number/mail adress of the guy that buys them to ask him if he still skates them in 2 years, because they better look as new then".

Theeve's product and team definitely has my interest, but $130 for trucks is insane. I'd probably try a pair of their regular trucks down the road if I can pull myself out of my Indy comfort zone.

After 20+ years of Indys, I'm a convert to their normal TiAX trucks.   (Skate mostly tranny and bowls, 20% street) I'm not sure what is supposed to be that much better about these, the regular TiAX are super light already.  Can't imagine these are really that much better.  I do fully back the TiAX though.

i have tiax's now. like em better than indy or venture. its like the best of both.
indys turn better but i always feel like you really have to lean into your grind.
ventures grind better but wear too quick. but they have better kingpin clearance.
