“ Brand: Independent / Type: Skateboard trucks „
Independent made the first ever production skate board trucks so as you can imagine, they one of the best truck company's out there! I normally love Independent trucks but I am not sure of what to think of these. I was in my local skate store and I picked them up. They felt extremaly light which is always a plus but after a few weeks of heavy use, I started to notice that they were extremaly worn down and were getting to the point that I couldn't use them any more. I was very disappointed but the few weeks that I got to use them was great.
The turning that they give is outstanding. They were ultra responsive when you need them to be, but very stable when you want them to be. Very good. The grinding was extremaly smooth which is due to the trucks metal being so soft. I thought that they would be durable when I got them as I have had independents before which were extremaly durable. I guess that they are not all the same!
Overall they were good trucks for their short life but they soon wear out and become useless. I would only recommend them if you are willing to get another pair a month later!
