RipTide KranK Barrel + Washers Longboard Skateboard Bushings Pack
RipTide Bushings offer three unique varieties of urethane:
The APS (Animated Polymer Systems). the WFB (World's Fastest Bushings), and the newest edition to the family is the KranK (Performance Under Pressure).
The KranK bushings are made out of a high rebound formula that will harden when compressed under pressure. For example if you are cruising down some mellow hills then you decide to step it and mob down the next, just tighten that kingpin nut down a turn or two and voila your ready to go.
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.
KranK™: Performance Under Pressure
Our highest rebound formula to date, KranK is designed specifically to change under pressure and is controlled by the amount of clamp pressure you subject it to when tightening the King Pin nut!
The effective range of control is from barely snug for the loosest feel to 2 full turns for the tightest feel.
KranK will turn the same or less than the same durometer of other brands which is also a departure from APS and WFB.
As for washers, flat washers work great with this compound, but for the greatest control and range of this performance feature, use cupped, precision flat or precision cupped washers.

Stuck a 96a board-side in my rear truck and it's stiff as a board… anyway works great in PNL trucks in combination with APS barrels.

Designed for a middle-sized riderBy Ian Vantroba on 2015-10-15 Verified Purchase
These work perfectly as a boardside bushing for a 165lb.+ man looking for stability with a full turning ability in downhill riding. They are well balanced, although I do not recommend two on a single truck if you're looking for a freeride setup; go with a softer duro for the wheelside bushing.
