Riptide - APS Barrel Bushings 70a, 75a (set of 2)

Regular price $68.00 Sale

APS™ Formula:  Animated Polymer System:

As the name implies, this compound is very lively and offers high rebound with lots of control and lean.  For the same durometer, the APS will turn 10% to 15% more than the same durometer of other brands.  In addition, the APS does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug.  We recommend tightening to the point where it is difficult to turn the bushing in the bushing seat by hand.  Use a flat washer for lower resistance and a cupped washer for higher resistance.

  • .975" Dia x .60" High (24.77mm Dia x 15.24mm High)
  • APS rides a couple of points softer than they test, so order accordingly
  • Soft durometer bushings (75a - 85a) are for light-weight riders & those looking for a loosesetup in the RoadSide position.
  • Super-soft durometer bushings (60a - 70a) are designed for very light-weight or young riders and are also fun for those looking for a really loose setup in the RoadSide position.

Barrels offer the next step up in stability above the Cones and are often used for a broad range of skating disciplines depending on the skaters skill level and personal preference.
Excellent when used as a Double Barrel combo - but incredibly fun and variable when used in the Roadside position in combo with other shapes & or duro's in the Boardside position.
