Not everyone has the money -- or street cred -- to invest in a professional-grade pair of skateboarding trucks. Realizing that, we made sure to cast a wide net when putting this list together, incorporating both budget brands that will be suitable for total beginners to high-end axles that will satisfy even the most hardened of riders. Options like the Owlsome 5.25, for example, fit nicely into the former category, while the Tensor Rodney Mullen Mag Light fall into the latter. Ultimately, we thought the Independent Stage 11 best for most people, since they achieve an ideal balance between quality and price.
