Independent Truck Company is a skateboard truck manufacturer founded in 1978 in Santa Cruz, California. It was founded by Richard Novak, Jay Shiurman, Fausto Vitello, and Eric Swenson.
The Independent truck (or "Indy") was created according to the lack of quality skateboard trucks on the market at the time. Independent trucks are manufactured with high-quality aircraft grade T6 aluminum alloy, high tensile SAE 4130 Chromoly alloy steel axles, and high rebound formula stock bushings.
One of the best trucks of all time, currently on stage XI, Independent 149, Independent 139, Independent 215, Independent 144 and Independent 169, that we all have in stock are loved by the skate community.
