NEW INDEPENDENT STAGE 9 LOW – DROPPING WORLDWIDE ON 09-15-06
Independent Trucks is proud to announce the worldwide release on September 15, 2006 of the first ever Independent low-profile street truck; the new Independent Stage 9 Low.
Utilizing the original Fast-Action Independent Geometry with the same kingpin and pivot angles–the new Stage 9 Low turns and responds quickly and precisely, just like an Independent truck should. By keeping the original axle position relative to the mounting holes the new Stage 9 Low provides the truest wheel base possible and keeps the meat of the baseplate outside of your wheels for solid nose and tail tricks. The shape of the inside portion of the hanger has been rounded for additional grind space on smith and feeble grinds.
