Quantity 1 = 2 bushings which is enough for 1 truck. Order quantity 2 for a complete longboard.

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 bulky shape of the appropriately named RipTide Chubby Bushings offers a very stable platform and less movement rebound than the Barrels, making the RipTide Chubby Bushings a great choice for high speed downhill and any other time you don't want trucks to turn like crazy.

If you combine the RipTide Chubby Bushings with a set of the RipTide Barrel bushings, you've got yourself a great combo for a larger rider as well as for technical and high speed downhill alike.

These Chubby RipTides are mega wide. This means a standard cupped washer isn't gonna fit. Luckily for you, the Chubby Pack includes two large flat washers, too!

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.
