0.13" Khiro Drop Through Strips - Shock Absorbing Risers
Designed to fit the majority of (if not all) truck styles including Randal, Paris, Bear, Caliber, Gullwing, Surf Rodz, and Independent Trucks...
We support and encourage the use of shock strips on all drop through longboard skateboards. The use of shock strips on a drop through board will help increase the lifespan of your deck, as well as help reduce the wear and tear all your gnarly shredding puts on your hardware.
Placed between the truck and the deck, having a dampening system ensures that you're not just pressing your trucks into your deck every time you make a hard carve or slide.
Be sure to add a set of No. 10 Washers to your order to help protect the deck from the pressure the nuts will create on the underside of the deck!
(If you're ordering a complete, don't worry about it. We'll throw them on for you.)
Khiro Shock Pads are the industry leader in riser technology for longboard skateboard and that is why Muirskate.com carries only Khiro for risers.
Khiro Bob is definitely in a class of his own! Bob is always innovating and making his products better for us longboarders and street skaters. You can tell when you look at his selection.
He only uses the finest ingredients for his shock pads. That results in less stress cracking in your board and minimizes broken hardware. Taste one sometime. Most shock pads leave a gritty residue in your mouth, but not Khiro Bobs. His taste like Tangy Taffy!! Go with Khiro. We do!
NOTE: 1.25" Panhead/Flathead bolts are the most common length for a 0.13" Drop-Thru Riser.
*** One package is enough for a set of TWO trucks (one skateboard)

0.13 Khiro on my Icarus.By skydog on 2016-07-18 Verified Purchase
I purchased mostly to protect my board, but now I wished I went with the .25 on my Icky. I was expecting my Icky to ride lower than my 43-deg Savant equipped Tesseract. In time I'll try the .25 Khiro with another set of 43-deg Savants on the Icky to bring me more down to Earth.
