Expect nothing but the best when Independent and Eric Koston collaborate to design a superior truck for all-terrain destruction! Introducing the Eric Koston Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow Trucks. Forged Aluminum baseplate increases strength, and hollow kingpin and axle reduce weight! Sizes: 129mm- 7.75" axle, or 139mm- 8" axle, or 149mm- 8.25" axle on a set of two trucks.
Hollow kingpin and axle.
Forged Aluminum baseplate.
4140 Chromoly Steel Axles.
Made in the USA.
Not really. The 159's will usually have a 8.75" axle width. With the Independent Eric Koston Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow trucks, it seems the 149's notation is used with both the 8.25" size and the 8.5" size. I have a shout out to the buyer to clarify this for me because at this point I am a little confused as well. But I will post another answer for you if needed. Otherwise, if the description is indeed wrong, look for the corrected copy to show online within a few days.
Independent brand trucks don't really have a mid truck...just highs and lows. But if you were to make a comparison to other trucks, then one could say the height of the Independent Eric Koston Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow truck is similar to a mid truck height.
