    First, these are some of the best bushings I've had. The quality control, performance, and customer service is top notch, period. Yes there are other great bushings out there, but if you want to spend the cash, these are the best. The WFB formula is turny and quick, feels responsive but not shaky, wont tighten up much, so get the right duro, but I use them on my freeride setup, great if you got control. KranK formula does run a tad harder as stated but yes, it actually is a tad harder, you have more play as far as duro goes since they respond to tightening. Very high rebound, I love these for anything carving or cruising. Experiment, try them out. It makes my set up feel even more dialed in. I love them and their customer service is quick too, I wont buy another company's bushing to be quite honest. And no, I'm not a fanboy, just someone who values optimization and performance.

    Such a small thing can have a huge impact. Riptide pivot cups make my trucks turn smoother and the dreaded squeak is gone for good

    Wild!! Riptide doesn't cease to amaze me. I just bought some riptide krank canons and they way outshine the venom bushings I was using before. It took me about a month or so to purchase these from when I started chatting with Brad for duro, formula, and size reccomendations. He was more than patient with all of my questions and ultimately helped me pick out the bushings that I got. The bushings are suoer comfortable and fit my trucks perfectly as well. Super super impressed with everything.

    I am running a WFB 95.5 chubby boardside and a APS 92.5 canon roadside with a sleeved washer under the chubby and a cup washer on the canon in the rear, and a WFB 93 chubby boardside and a APS 90 cone with a sleeved washer in the front. Trucks are Paris V2 Amanda Powell. I also installed 3M Safety-Walk under the truck mount, which is the stuff the Array Sticky Riser is made of, and 2.36mm thick Poron 4701-50 firm urethane sheeting, the stuff Loaded Pushin' Cushion was made of. I did away with shock pads under my trucks after reading a post Brad made on an e-skate blog saying there were better ways to dampen vibration, so I went looking for a better way. Poron may be it. I am running a mini in-out footstop up front and a aer-out foot stop flipped around backwards as an adjustable torque block. I have 1-1/2" washers on the deck with neoprene washers under them to protect the deck. Of course, Mr. Groucho advised through the planning process and green-lighted the project. I also swapped out the kingpin on my Charger 1 trucks to a 3" Khiro with the intent of grinding it down once the set-up was dialed in, but then discovered I could run tall bushings roadside and standard size boardside without messing with the geometry, but putting a lot more urethane between me and the road. I haven't had a chance to play with that one much yet, but I am sure it will be fun. All in all, these things are just gifts that keep on giving, investments in my well being, and I have certainly enjoyed every last little thing I have gotten from Brad and Tracey. I think I am at 7 boards now, so I don't see this train stopping soon...

    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!

    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

    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.
