Independent Stage 11 Hollow skate trucks are designed with Independent’s outstanding and precise turning geometry for increased stability when landing tricks, better ‘speed-wobble’ control and decreasing the chances of ‘wheel-bite.’ This makes Independent stage 11 trucks one of the most versatile skate trucks on the market, excelling in vert and transition, street and park skating, and general cruising and carving.
The ‘Hollows’ come with hollow axles and hollow kingpins for 10% lighter truck than the standard independent hangers.
Forged baseplates have an aligned grain structure, offering greater strength in specific directions. This makes forged baseplates a super strong option. Forged baseplates are lighter than their cast cousins, and more slimline so you can run 7/8” bolts perfectly.
The stage 11 trucks also have improved grind clearance to avoid grinding down your kingpin, as well as an improved ‘Yoke’ (divider round the bushing seat top and bottom) reducing hang-up potential for grinds like smiths and feebles.
4140 Chromoly steel axles (Nickel -1.55-2.0% for increasing hardness, Chromium – 0.5-0.96% for increasing hardness and elastic limits, Molybdenum – 0.25% for increasing hardness and Carbon – 4% increases strength and toughness.
