The Independent 139 Stage 11 Silver skateboard trucks improve upon the performance and iconic look of the Stage 10 design with newly reworked geometry.
Stage 11 trucks offers precise turns, better stability on landings, less speed wobble and decreased wheel bite. On top of all this, these trucks guarantee more overall grind clearance and an improved "no hang-up" yoke.
These Independent trucks seem to be the benchmark that others are compared to. So far, they seem bullet proof to me. I figure long after the rest of the components on my custom made board are ready for the trash, these trucks will just get bolted onto a new board. Extra few bucks for better trucks seems to make sense to me.
