Description

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

The WFB compound offers a very smooth & fast turn making sharp, technical maneuvers and fast carves a breeze.

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

Internally lubricated for smooth, fast, low-friction transitions in any competitive discipline.

The Formula: WFB
This compound has a unique internal lubrication that does not bond with the urethane which is why you will often see a white residue on the surface. The internal lubrication has been designed to slowly eke out of the urethane over a period of about 5 years. This compound offers reduced bushing friction for fast transitions and a deeper lean than the APS. WFB will turn 15% to 20% more than the same durometer of other brands. WFB also offers lower rebound than APS and is designed for the rider that wants a very fluid response. Truly the bushing of choice for the more experienced rider that wants to control his bushings instead of the bushings controlling him or her. Like APS, the WFB compound does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug. We recommend tightening to the point where it is difficult to turn the bushings in the bushing seat by hand. Use a flat washer for lower resistance and a cupped washer for higher resistance.

Riptide has taken the time to make a wonderful product. By far the best performance I have had in a bushing
