Independent‘s Tiago Lemos has world-class pop, and he demonstrates it with his latest clips. The brand’s advanced truck design, the Indy MiDs, is a perfect pairing for Lemos’s approach: Each MiD incorporates Independent’s legendary geometry with full size cushions for maximum turning action; the new, lower profile hanger is 52mm tall (the golden ratio of pop); new inverted kingpin for better grind clearance; and the innovative new shaft nut makes for a rigid and durable solution for better turning. (Just watch Lemos give these trucks a workout in the above video for a little demonstration.)
The MiDs come in 129, 139, 144, 149, and 159 sizes, and are recommended for wheels 53mm and smaller—if you’re looking for a new set of trucks, the MiDs might be the move.
Take a look back at some of Lemos’s work with us, below, since 2016:
