Independent's forged hollow Stage 11 skateboard trucks are 10% lighter than regular Stage 11's and stronger on impact than any other hollow axle truck on the market.
Forged - Forged baseplates are compression molded, making them lighter, stronger, and more impact resistant in comparison to cast or poured-mold baseplates. Forged materials have a tighter molecular structure, which provides a stronger ride with less material. Forging also eliminates most common manufacturing defects and imperfections.
Hollow Axle & Kingpin - Hollow axle trucks cut down on the materials used in the axle, so your trucks feel lighter. Hollow kingpins further reduce weight while still maintaining strength in this critical area.
Sizing Image - Every truck company seems to represent their truck sizing a little differently, so it's easy to get confused. To avoid any potential confusion take a look at this graphic and then reference the size chart.
Risers from the following brands are not compatible with the baseplates of these trucks.
No Hang-Up Yoke - An enhanced yoke around the cushion seat takes the kingpin out-of-play on grind tricks like feebles and smiths.
Lifetime Guarantee - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage defects in hanger/base materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken trucks due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost or worn out parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.
Sorry, but getting your trucks run over by mom's SUV does not qualify as a manufacturer's defect.
