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 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 .8" tall, which makes them a great fit for Ronin and Bennett Vector Trucks.

Height: ~19.8mm
Outer Diameter: ~24.75mm
Inner Diameter: ~9.40mm

RipTide's Description

Designed specifically for Ronin & Bennett Trucks - will fit any truck that requires a .8" tall bushing!

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.

I’ve tried both Riptide APS (90a) & Krank (90a) in tall barrels + some APS tall Fat Cones (92.5a) along w some Venom HPF tall barrels (90a + 93a) and I always find myself going back to buying Riptides, more Krank talls lately as I really like the way they feel paired w/ Amish flat sleeved washers! But to be honest, my favorite bushing setup I’ve finally found to like the most is 93a Venom HPF talls BS paired w/ 90a Riptide Krank talls RS as this feels absolutely perfecto for my type of riding!
