An often overlooked, yet vital, part to a longboard is a pivot cup. These are little cups that are seated into the baseplate of the truck. With the constant forces of a turning longboard, the pivot cups will begin to wear and some slop will begin to develop.
By replacing your pivots (when they are worn) you are essentially making your truck turn like new because there is no longer any slop. These things are cheap and will freshen up your ride! Good pivots = trucks that feel like precisions.
The same perfect urethane blend of rebound and dampening found in your Venom High-Performance Bushings is now available in pivot cup form. Available in 90A, 93A, and 97A, Venom High-Performance Pivot Cups remove slop from your cast trucks, improving responsiveness and overall feel. The softer 90A dampens road vibration for a smoother ride when cruising and carving. For higher performance freeriding, downhill, and racing, the harder 93A and 97A duros will make your trucks feel more responsive, precise, and accurate so you can take the lines you need.
Venom Pivot Cups are made in the USA and fit Caliber, Gunmetal, and Paris trucks.
