    The best bushings! My weight is 100 kg. I use aps 95 / 92.5 from behind and 92.5 / 90 in front or krank 96/93 93/90

    Went a lot lower duro for a recent Bennett pumping build. This double cone set up goes great for me at 150 lbs-- 70a APS TallCone boardside and 67.5a APS cone roadside. Perfect for my around town mini-pumper. (Bennett wedged 15 degrees.)

    Ordered the krank chubby's and installed board side. Coming from the stock bushings it's night and day. Will be buying different combinations since these were so much better. Thanks Again

    Recently bought a new longboard to get back into boarding after 10+ years and was sorely disappointed when I first jumped on it by how wobbly it felt. Read online (several hours of cramming bushing knowledge into my brain) that I should try some higher duro bushings. The 96's were the perfect fit, the board rides great now! Thanks for a great experience, I'll be ordering again soon!

    Tracey helped me to make the best choice for my Sidewinders. Pumping and surfing much better now!

    Picked up a set of the Indy pivot cups to give them a shot on my cruiser setup. I've been trying to get the ride as smooth as possible. Currently running 78a OJ hot juice mini (55mm) wheels, bones hardcore bushings (hard boardside, medium roadside) and a pair of 1/8" Indy shock pads. Figured I'd give the Riptide pivot cups a shot to see how they changed the feel of the setup. The stock Indy bushings are a hard plasticy material and are pretty low quality. These Riptide cups blow the stock ones out of the water in terms of quality and performance. The tolerances are insanely good and they are super easy to install. The Riptides definitely make the hanger return to center faster with a smoother feel and response. I'd be interested in trying a softer pivot cup like 90a to see how that performs. I would definitely be able to tell the difference between the two in a blind test. Highly recommend giving them a shot. Well worth the 15 bucks. Also ordered a set of KranK bushings to try out in place of the bones. Will report back once I get them.

    I needed to make sure my board is well protected from stressing the drop through deck. These plates are great.

    It all started with pivot cups… I got a Koastal Drifter with Gullwing Charger 1’s on it. As soon as I got it I took it to the road, pushed off and when I put both feet up it wobbled wildly and threw me. An 89a duro cone/cone setup was not meant for someone over 200 lbs, so I ordered some other popular bushings in barrel/barrel, which were better but still not perfect. Then I started thinking, if the bushings were unsuitable the pivot cup probably is too, so I started researching pivot cups. I was very impressed with the amount of fieldwork Riptide had done in this area, so I decided to try some of their bushings in APS barrel/barrel too. Wow. Just wow. Huge difference. WAY better feel than the other popular bushings, so I ordered a selection of shapes and sizes duros and formulas to experiment with. I tried the Fatcones on the bottom and they are amazing. They act like the barrels, but have this wonderful, confidence-inspiring support that kicks in during turning. On back, I’m running an APS Fatcone on the bottom with the large washer, and an APS barrel on top with an Array sleeved washer and cup washer. On the front, I’m running a WFB Fatcone with the large washer on the bottom, and a WFB Cone with a cup washer on the top. This setup works really well for me. It is very solid in the back with a really fun swimmy feel up front without sacrificing stability. I found it to be much more responsive than the same setup with APS all around. Everyone’s gotta find that sweet spot. At any rate, I’m sold! I don’t see any reason to look further for my urethane, as I have a lot of combinations to explore. I also got some Gullwing Sidewinder II's and some Paris V2's, so now I'm gonna have to get a selection of the street series and Paris specific bushings now too

    Stock bushing and pivot cups have me wobbles at 30mph. Riptide changed all of that and my stability at 43mph is impressive! Thank you Riptide Sports

    FatCones on trucks with no bushing seat, rock. Stable when slightly snugged and agile loose.

    Riptide makes some of the best bushings, pivot cups, and longboard accesories in the business. I keep coming back to them time and time again whenever I need to setup a new board and make it just right.

    Riptide bushings are the best for esk8...the WFB formula is incredible, tall barrels are perfect for hard leans at high speeds. Save yourself time & money, buy Riptide bushings.

    These pivot cups have become a necessity for me in my trucks. The standard shape fits in Ace, Indy and Thunder without any issues at all in my experience. They hold the stem of the truck hanger tightly in the pivot cup on Thunders, no more "Thunder Wiggle" you sometimes get with their poor quality stock pivot cups. They don't squeak, they don't crack and break and they're immediately broken-in providing a much smoother turn to your trucks. They last so long I've taken them out of old trucks and put them in new ones without any issues at all. I highly recommend giving these a try! This small part of your setup truly does make the entire experience of riding your board so much smoother!
