Independent Skateboard Trucks have been around longer than we've been on the internet, and with good reason! Indy trucks are the bees knees when it comes to a shreddable standard kingpin truck!
We love to set up Independents on Earthwing skateboards, Gravity skateboards, Sector 9 Skateboards, and any other boards with a new school drilling pattern!
The stock bushings are quite soft, so you may wish to upgrade them to get the most out of your new favorite trucks.
To further customize your ride, you might want to purchase a pack of Venom DH Barrels that correspond to your body weight (light, medium, heavy), riding style (casual, intermediate, aggressive), and stiffness of your board (flexy, medium, stiff). These will go board-side. You will also need to purchase one pack of Bones Hard Core Bushings for the top of the trucks. You will want to use the smaller two (of the four bushings that come in the pack) on the road side of the truck. Be sure to choose a harder combination of bushings for higher speeds and stiffer boards.
New Stage 11 standard height trucks are unquestionably the best combination of features and geometry Independent has ever produced.
By improving the modern performance features and iconic look of our Stage 10 design with newly reworked geometry based on Independent Stages 5-7 Independent has created the new standard to which all other trucks will be judged.
New Stage 11s feature improved performance features like:
-Improved turning: turn into and out of things easier
-Improved stability on landings and at high speeds
-Less wheels bite
-Better overall grind clearance
We're a bunch of San Diego skaters in a warehouse, assembling your longboards by hand, making sure you get the best ride under your feet. Yes, we need to pay the rent, but we're in this to spread the stoke of skating as far and wide as we can.
Founded back in 2005, Muir Skate started out as a 400 sqft shop at UCSD's John Muir College. Now located in a 7,000 sqft warehouse, just 10 minutes away from our birthplace, Muir Skate sells high quality longboard skateboard gear and sets the bar for best customer service. And we pronounce it "me-ew-er".
