The new Riptide RF-1 WFB 96a Pivot Cups are now available at

An often overlooked, yet vital part of 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 over time.

By replacing your pivot cups (when they are worn) you are essentially making your truck turn like new because there is no longer any slop.

Good pivots = more precise trucks

These things are cheap and will freshen up your ride!

RipTide's Description

-Sold as Pair with Sticker
-Specifically designed for each truck
-Lively & Responsive
-Hand-poured into Custom-made molds, then the cup end is machined to fit the truck's base plate perfectly
-No machining imperfections and no heat-affected zone in the super smooth pivot contact area
-RipTide's exclusive Internally Lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a

RipTide Pivot Cups & Tubes are the result of two years of beta testing in every possible condition that Colorado's high country can deliver.

RipTide's Pivots are specifically designed for each truck. We do not offer universal styles because of the compromises a universal pivot forces you to make. In some cases, we offer both tubes & cups for the same truck. Both offer the smooth turning benefits of RipTide's exclusive internally lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a, but the Tube offers even lower friction due to the reduced surface contact with the nose of the hanger.

The difference in feeling is immediately noticeable. Adds more sensitivity, especially to softer bushings and an even deeper dive which helps break out into slides more aggressively. If you use your RF-1’s for freeride, you need to try these.
