NOTE: Designed specifically for Independents brand trucks
**Also fits Gullwing Sidewinders**

Cooked up in the mad scientist's lair, Riptide has a new Pivot Cup option for Indy Truck riders.

An often overlooked, yet vital, part to a longboard is a pivot cup. These are little cups that are seated into the baseplate of the truck. With the constant forces of a turning longboard, the pivot cups will begin to wear and some slop will begin to develop.

By replacing your pivots (when they are worn) you are essentially making your truck turn like new because there is no longer any slop. These things are cheap and will freshen up your ride! Good pivots = trucks that feel like precisions.

Dimensions:
Height: ~12.20mm
Outer Diameter: ~16.05mm
Inner Diameter: ~11.25mm

Icy in a good way

These will make an old pair of Indys SING. I would never put anything but Riptide in a pair of trucks I owned. Loooots of other trucks take them too. If your Carver C7 truck setup is OLDER than the current "C7.3/C2.4" series that RipTide if now offering cups for, buy these. That is to say, if your Carver C7 and C2 rear cups are the SAME size, order these 96a Indy-sided cups. Some people will say that the 96 isn't as plush as say, 90a, but If you're out there carving and surfing wouldn't you rather have your pivots moving quicker and smoother? Let soft wheels and proper bushings take care of the rest.

I bought a couple of sets to replace the cups on my Ace 44's and 55's. Yes, these were designed for Indy trucks. (The designer for Ace used to work for Indy.) But they fit like a charm and turn even better! Very noticeable improvement in response overall. I highly recommend them.

The make carving feel more smooth and helps transition better. Also, the bounce back is not that strong.
