    Riptide has always been one of my favorite company's, I've ordered from them a lot and their products are all good I first started with 87A krank chubby and 87a krank barrels and loved them so then a few months later I got 90A krank barrels. After then 96a pivots, which I got the wrong size (I thought my board was bear gen 4 it was gen 5) I then returned them and got a note saying that hopefully these fit and work well. They fit, and they also worked extremely well. I eventually got a Landyachtz ditchlife and couldn't stand the new bushings and pivot because riptide is just so much better and tried aps and loved it no surprise there although polar bears are not a good fit in it (I have some play between them and loud noises because polar bear 155s have VERY restrictive bushing seats) I may sand them down so they fit right but that is a problem from bear trucks, as I measured everything with calipers and the riptide bushings are right to the tenth of a mm which is as small as the calipers go. I also got 96A polar bear pivot for it and it was great. Pretty much everything is great. Oh and also I asked for 2 cupped washers instead of stickers on my last purchase and they emailed me saying that they would do it and they added 2 washers along with stickers (which I have a lot of now), I once had to call them inquiring about the 92.5a aps and they picked up instantly and helped me a lot with it. TL:DR riptide I'd literally my favorite company out there, not just for longboard gear but everything.

    Simply the best addition to my build. Allows for super fast foot placement and really helps lock you in.

    if you want to go fast and still carve, get with Brad for recommendations specific to your weight, and your set up.

    There is absolutely no better feeling than the confidence riptide bushings inspire. Through the thoughtful product recommendations from Brad himself I was able to find the perfect bushing shape and duro combination to give me maneuverability and also stability at speed. Long gone are my days of fearing the death wobbles as they no longer exist. It almost feels like cheating!

    I just got a Mellow Drive. It comes with 95a barrels boardside and 90a barrels roadside. I change all my bushings to Riptide anymore, regardless. Literally the only stock bushings that could even compete are from Sabre trucks. Anyway, the bushing seat is limited to standard size, so fatcones are my plushest option. I have APS 95a fatcones roadside. I have an APS 90a Fatcone roadside rear, and same but a cone up front. I did get some wobble at 11mph. I'm going to switch to KRANK 96a fatcones boardside and KRANK 90a roadside, same as same. I think that would be perfectamundo. The kingpin has a built-in sleeved washer roadside, so the fatty overhangs the washer a tad. You gotta roll with it. I REALLY want to get a Riptide pivot cup for my Mellow Drive. hint,hint I ride them on everything. I take out stock pivots if possible before ever riding with RipTide pivot cups. I'm using my Paris V2's up front. I got a 95a Magnum as base on front. A little bit more urethane than a Fatcone, but I run Chubbys as base on all my other set-ups, if possible. It's plush AF. The drive wheels are a little bumpy, but I'm slapping another sheet of hard poron on top for some additional padding. Basically, I just replace all stock bushings and pivot cups for RipTide from the git-go because I know they are not betta, and I WANT mo betta. I'm worth that to me

    Recommended a Fat Cone, barrel combo for the RKP for stability at speed but solid carving ability. Let's just say the recommendations were right. It rocks!

    New pivot cups make a big difference in the ride, really love how smooth and agile they feel. Footstop is really nice for a reference point for my front foot.

    Bought these for my trucks for my diy electric skateboard. So far I've been testing the carving abilities of my board while waiting on my electronics to ship

    I decided to run an old pair of Randal RII 125’s on my first downhill setup because that’s what I had and I wasn’t ready to step up and buy a pair of precision trucks yet. Using the Riptide charts I chose to run chubby at the rear fat cone up front board side and street side barrels. My board turns up front and makes traction at the rear. The charts took the guess work out and helped me make a decision what to purchase. Thanks Riptide

    Brad and Tracey pick only the best urethanes for the best blends. There is really no comparison in the industry. The WFB formula feels spectacularly surfy boardside. I use Chubbys boardside on every set up. I even shortened a set on the belt sander to fit street trucks. If it feels too restrictive I drop a durometer, but always use a Chubby on bottom. I run an APS or Krank bushing roadside, usually a durometer lower than the WFB Chubby, so I have a 93a WFB Chubby paired with a 90a APS or Krank on top. To encourage steering from the nose, I put a Fatcone roadside rear and a Cone up front. I refuse to ride any board without a WFB pivot cup. Just don't do it. Life is too short. On my street set ups, I like to use Krank, mainly, so I can stiffen up the starboard side if it starts wobbling. It makes a street set up way more versatile. There is no other bushing made that does that. On longboards I use APS bushings roadside, as they are already dialed in for their intended purpose for the most part. The Mini I/O footstop is also really versatile. The Aer-Out foot stop is a beautiful work of art. Hats off to Pritchard Skate Designs. I feel the folks at RipTide do more than think outside of the box. They, like me know the box is an illusion and your world is what you make it. I'm turning 50 on Thursday so I know stuff, hahaha!

    I use Riptide bushings on most of my boards! Love the foot stops since they come in different colors and are soft enough to conform to the deck.

  24. Tracey and Brad helped set me up with the best bushing and pivot cup upgrade I could hope for. I skated my reinvigorated Indy 159s in freezing temps and now moderate weather. The APS Short and regular Street Cone coupled with the WFB 96a pivot cups break in quickly and haven't distorted, stay aligned, remained responsive with noticeably less squeak in a variety of conditions. Super responsive with questions and support, and an excellent product. Really an awesome experience!!! Thanks Tracey and Brad!
