At 10% lighter than standard stage 11’s, we present to you the Forged Hollow Standard Independent Trucks. They feature a forged base plate, hollow kingpins and hollow axles. They are really are one of the most cutting edge trucks we have ever seen.
They are 53.5mm tall, putting them slightly below the high size for Independents (55mm) and taller than the lows (48.5mm). This tactical height advantage gives skaters who are used to high trucks a very slightly quicker pop without sacrificing much leverage and low truck skaters more leverage without having to graduate to a high truck. These 10% lighter trucks may be just that edge you need to get that bit of extra height and accomplish those troublesome tricks. Improving technology in trucks without sacrificing strength, that’s the best. That’s Independent.
These trucks are great for any skill level. Riders young and old can feel the difference in Independents control versus the next leading truck. This 1978 founded brand has been innovating in skateboarding since day 1. From designing trucks for serious pool skating to reinventing trucks for street use, Independent is a name you can trust.

We had a feeling that it wouldn’t be much, but we wanted to indulge our curiosities anyway and see what 1000 grinds would do to a brand new pair of Indy’s. We grabbed some of the best grinders we know, Kevin Kowalski and Mason Merlino, and sent them down south to put a hurting on these trucks. They made everyone they saw get a grind on all sorts of spots. Everything from perfect steel coping to crusty curbs was fairground and, big surprise, the trucks made it out alive. Of course we didn’t put EVERY grind in the video, because we know you don’t have time for 20 minutes of grinding, but enjoy the carnage as some of our favorite pro’s and ams put these trucks to the test!
