Description

RipTide Bushings offer two unique varieties of urethane. The APS (Animated Polymer Systems) and the WFB (World's Fastest Bushings)

The APS compound offers a very linear turn (keeps the bushings predictable all the way to the end) along with a solid level of rebound to get your trucks back to center after a quick turn.

The tapered shape of the RipTide Cone Bushings offers an easy turn which makes them great for cruising and carving. If you combine the RipTide Cone Bushings with a set of the RipTide Barrel bushings, you've got yourself a great combo for aggressive carves and low to mid-speed freeriding.

These bushings are .60" tall, which makes them a great fit for reverse kingpin trucks (more specifically reverse kingpin *cast* trucks) like Randals, Calibers, Paris, Bear Grizzly 852, Chargers and others.

RipTide's Description

Lively and responsive, high-performance urethane with just the right amount of rebound. Very linear in response so you can control the bushing instead of the other way around.

The Formula: APS (Animated Polymer System)
As the name implies, this compound is very lively and offers high rebound with lots of control and lean. For the same durometer, the APS will turn 10% to 15% more than the same durometer of other brands. In addition, the APS does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug. We recommend tightening to the point where is difficult to turn the bushing in the bushing seat by hand. Use a flat washer for lower resistance and a cupped washer for higher resistance.

Good Ol' Riptides

I love the barrels, I got some cones for my cruiser with RKP's and they're fantastic. Unless you're freeriding get Riptides.
