You can only imagine the beatings Baekkel and Russell have in store for the new Arachne Pro series offered on the superior VX construction. These guys throw everything they got at these decks and want you to do so as well. So What you got?! Baekkel's 8.25" and Russell's 8.6" widths are waiting for you at finer skate shops now.

VX decks are thinner, stronger, and have more pop than standard 7 ply decks featuring 5 plies of North American Maple and 2 layers of Quad X technology.
*Deck range recommendation varies depending on type and width of wheels
How hard are the stock cushions / bushings on Independent & Krux skateboard trucks?
Independent trucks come with 90A stock cushions (also called bushings). If you like softer or harder cushions, they can be purchased separately from Independent's Genuine Parts.
Krux trucks come with 92A stock cushions (also called bushings). If you like softer or harder cushions, they can be purchased separately from Krux Trucks Hardware.
What Independent models offer 6 holes baseplate and what is this for?
All non-forged models in 109, 159, 169, and 215 sizes come with 6 hole baseplates. All Stage 4 sizes come with 6 hole baseplates. The 6 holes baseplates are compatible with both current decks and old-school ones.
When attaching your trucks to your board you’re gonna want to make sure your bolts are long enough. If you ride bigger wheels, you'll want to use risers, and if you use risers, you’ll want to run a longer bolt, but you don’t want to go too long or your setup will look all goofy! Use the chart below and everything will fall into place.
