Lighter, stronger, and smoother.
The Independent Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow Trucks are super-lightweight trucks designed to destroy street rails, park ledges, manual pads, and vert ramps. The secret to these mid-height trucks' performance is a completely reworked geometry that's slightly higher (1.5 millimeters) than their predecessor. The hollow, chromoly steel axle and kingpin save precious weight, making these approximately 10% lighter than regular Stage 11 Trucks. However, these trucks don't skimp on strength or durability, as a forged-aluminum baseplate makes these stronger than any other hollow-axle truck in existence.
The reworked geometry of these trucks not only provides ultra-lightweight performance, but it also makes for smoother turning, improved stability on landings, less wheel bite, and better overall grind clearance, which was an issue on older Independent Trucks. More grind clearance is paramount when making a skate truck last a long time; shorter clearance trucks simply give out too soon—causing you to grind the kingpin, eventually ruining the truck itself. In addition, these trucks now work with wheels up to 54 millimeters in size.
