Independent Skateboard Hardware

Independent Truck company has been in the skate game for longer then I have been in the game! Started in 1978, it's creation was in response to the poor quality of skate trucks on the market at the time. One of the key features of the new truck was that you could adjust the tension making them skate loser or tighter. Sounds crazy now that this could not be done but most trucks at the time did not provide this function.

The cross logo used by Independent comes from an image the founders saw in Time Magazine of the pope wearing the symbol that looks like the cross logo. They ripped it off fair and square! 

Independent still produces some of the best, cleanest and most effective skateboard trucks that can be bought today. They have subsequently taken their truck building skills and applied it to bearings, bolts and all forms of skate hardware.
