Description

The Array washers are some of the raddest innovations we've seen come from of the longboarding industry as of late. These 303 machined stainless steel washers that sit on the barrel bushings of your choice and stays right where it's meant to be while keeping the bushing engaged and running at it's full, responsive potential. "Normal" flat and cupped washers move back and forth against the kingpin when you're turning hard, pumping and putting force on the trucks. Over time this can cause problems (such as broken kingpins) if you're not careful. Array machined washer sit snug against the kingpin and ensures the truck moves as one system, not a bunch of pieces of metal and urethane moving against one another.
We were lucky enough to try these washers out before the hit our shelves and we are stoked to say the least. The response we're getting from our bushings is much better than it is using a standard flat washer. Throw these on your trucks with your bushings of choice and you'll be swearing you're on some precision trucks. Shoot, imagine putting these washers ON PRECISION'S. That'd be like a double precision. Your friends will be jealous. Keep your eyes on that board!

Array's Description

At Griffin Skateboards, we have noticed there is a problem with the standard washer cups on all stock skateboard trucks today. People are snapping their kingpins on their trucks left and right. The grade 8 washer and grade 8 kingpin in combination with bushings that are too soft are hanging up the kingpin and snapping it. Old, traditional washer cups surf around on the bushing and on the kingpin too much. It's about time we have a state of the art washer that works to help the rider be safe. We have been working on solving this problem since 2009 We believe we have the solution: The Array washers! We have already sent some to our best customers with an excellent response.
