Top Ten Skateboarding Trucks


The Top Ten

1 Independent

Independent skateboard trucks are the best. I've been skating mine for 2 years now and they are still in good shape. Smoothest grind ever, especially Chris Haslam stage 10's.

They are very durable and grind really well. After 2 years of skating the stock bushings needed replacement though, changed them to bones, which more skaters do after a while or right away. The truck is great but some people hate on their stock bushings

tensors break too easy independents are stronger than any other brand especially chris haslam independents - fallenfannumber1

Indys are the best truck out there way better than tensor or destructo! - pkripper88

2 Venture

very very good I had mine for like a month, no problems at all lol

I have always had venture an dei last very long! they ara perfect

Indy and venture are my favorite truck brands, I tried many brands but these 2 remain on top, they are both durable light and grind great

I had venture trucks on my old board they are light and grind well but for some reason whenever I try to ride them lose the bolt comes of.

3 Thunder

Thunder trucks are really light and strong, which makes them last long and lets you pop higher. I'd recommend them to ANYONE that skates because overall, they're good at grinding too.

Thunders r the best trucks I ever had and I also had ventures independent tensor and krux and none of them r as light and durable as thunder. You should get thunder because der super light extremely durable and they also look sick.

You can't really get any better! If you had thunders you would know what I'm talking about. plus avoid tensors there the worst ever my magnesiums bent after one 5 foot grind!

I have thunder and like the name says they are fast and good for trick I've tried my friends destructo and they are good but nothing compared to thunder

4 Tensor

The best

Their Magnesium Trucks are so durable and amazing. I like this list its probably the only skateboarding top ten that isn't voted on by a bunch of posers.

Really light and strong! Way better than Independent & Thunder

Tensor R2 Magnesium is the lightest

5 Destrukto

Nice and durable tensor is light but destruckto should be atleast # 2 on this list - burtonsuz97

Tensors in front of destructo! That isn't right my friend got tensors and they broke left super bad.

No Destructo shouldn't even be in #5 they are HORRIBLE - Siscew

6 Krux

Light, durable, grinds hella smooth and turn the best with bones bushings

Bad bad boy


Cheapest trucks with no serious performance limitations. a.k.a. all you really need...

7 Silver

I don know why silver is #5 it should at least be in the top 3 I mean it rides smoothy and lasts a long time

They are ok I would recommend them to some people

And they have nice grinding

The best for transition skating!

8 Royal

Come on guys ROYALS they ture so good
All of the one are bad!

9 Element

Awesome trucks,going great on any deck (of corse) had them for 4 years now.. So far no rust or anything on it and this truck is pretty on smooth on grinding.

10 Grind King

The Contenders

11 Theeves

Great trucks, skated them for every setup except my first, people should really give them a chance, they last for ages and I skate ledge, not as much as I used to but the pair I'm riding at the moment ( Ti Kings) have lasted me a while I'm still skating them

Theeve trucks enough said

12 Phantom
13 Core

Great trucks. Don't waste your money on independents. Cores are really good for grinding and just getting a nice smooth 50-50 or any other grind

Core is number one. Great for beginers as well as for anyone. They are really good with reds. I just started skate boarding and I can almost can do a kickflip

Laugh out loud, bearings are going to spin the same on any truck man!

14 Positiv
15 Spider
16 Ace

Great trucks still ride then they are perfect

17 Bullet

Amazing trucks for grinding and turning

You get what you pay for with these, I snapped the back baseplate on my old set from ollieing down a small 6 set, best paying out a bit extra for a pair of trucks that will last, maybe I just got a bad set, but I won't buy another set just to find out.

18 Crail
19 Slant
20 Navigator Trucks
21 Tracker Dart

Can't believe why nobody has mentioned these, people seem to forget how great they are, I've been skating since the late 80s and I've rode a lot of different trucks in that time, everyone gets a boner for Indys but I really don't see the attraction to them.

I have a pair of Darts on my current transition board, and I honestly haven't rode trucks this nice ever before great feeling to them and their geometry is so nice, awesome for carving bowls, and they grind really well, I wouldn't use the 161s for street as they are pretty heavy, and with 66mm Bullet wheels on them with a 9.5" board flip tricks are REALLY hard on that setup, but again this is a transition setup, I run Tensors on my street board (element) with a set of Bones SPF wheels.

Most of the brands stated above are all pretty similar to Independent trucks in their design, Trackers 4 life!

22 Orion
23 Mini Logo
24 Blacksmith

I received these trucks for free off of craigslist and I must say I am very impressed, very durable, grind well and all at the same time they're not ridiculously heavy
