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 straight-walled shape of the RipTide Barrel Bushings offers a stable platform and slightly higher rebound than the Cones, making the RipTide Barrels a great choice for higher speed freeriding as well as faster downhill purposes.

If you combine the RipTide Barrel Bushings with a set of the RipTide Cones bushings, you've got yourself a great combo for aggressive carves and low to mid-speed freeriding, too!

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.

Very precise

The WFB formula is the secret to making your standard Paris, caliber, etc, handle more like tall barrel trucks. They offer very precise control, as well as removing the twitch that you get from having too much rebound during fast switchback turning. Personally using them on 43° Paris 150 V3's.

I have used these on Caliber II's 50's, the have the best rebound and response. Incredibly stable, can't wait to use them on some 44's!
