Top Ten Skateboarding Trucks

The Top Ten
1 Independent

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

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 lightweight, turn real good, grind the smoothest, and last forever

Guarenteed. Independent Trucks forever

Some models might be a little heavy but they truly have the best skater, style, and they slide AMAZINGLY. Thanks Fausto!

2 Venture

I have had mine for two years and I still ride them!
And I recommend this trucks! Guarenteed. Venture Trucks forever! By the way Independent sucks laugh out loud

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.

These trucks are good espically when you turn, grind and pop I highly recommend them to anyone.

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

3 Thunder

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.

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.

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 ridden every truck and these are by far the superior

4 Tensor

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.

Um the best ever! Booya! The best are the sliders, so good and smooth on those deadly nose and tailslide!

Really light and strong! Way better than Independent & Thunder

Tesor is my first one I think it is very light good for doing flip trick

5 Destrukto

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

Nice and durable tensor is light but destruckto should be at least # 2 on this list

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

6 Krux

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

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

7 Silver

They are ok I would recommend them to some people

And they have nice grinding

The best for transition skating!

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

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

Theeve trucks enough said

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

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

14 Positiv
15 Spider
16 Ace

Great trucks still ride then they are perfect

17 Bullet

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.

Amazing trucks for grinding and turning

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
