The 149 Stage 11 Silver Skateboard Trucks from Independent.
Designed to provide the best hybrid of performance and geometry. Independent re-engineered the Stage 10 to create a whole new truck, effectively setting a new standard to which all other trucks will be judged.
The Stage 11 trucks provide incredibly precise turns, better stability on landings, less high-speed wobble and decreased wheel bite. On top of all this, these trucks promise more overall grind clearance with an improved "no hang-up" yoke. Guaranteed for life, these performance trucks are number-one for a reason.
indies are excellent. they're classic and timeless. i've ridden the 139s on 8.1's and 8.25's for years, but i decided i would try sizing up to the 149 for more truck surface and stability. i was slightly worried that flipping my board would be weird due to the added weight of these trucks, but i went with it because i've been skating more transition recently. i generally hate breaking in new trucks, but i'd had my previous pair of indy's for about 4 years so it was pretty much time. upon setting these up, i was pleasantly surprised by how relaxed the turning was. there really was no break in period. everything felt awesome, and tre flips flipped just a tiny bit slower so that i could really pop them harder. i love these trucks! get em.
After you've rode for a while and have tried different trucks you will realize there is no need for color coordinated trucks. These are just simple and really great. best truck out there. Save the time and get these.

Asked by Richard on 7/7/2013
Do these trucks have hollow axles and kingpins too? The description says they do, but the picture shows different. Thanks!
these trucks do not have hollow axles or a hollow kingpin. only the koston's have hollow axles and kingpin, while the reynolds just have hollow axles.
