Riptide - APS ShortStreetBarrel Bushings 95a, 97.5a (set of 2)
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, theAPSwill 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.
Sized to fit properly in conventional "Indy-style" trucks
Custom APS Urethane Formula for ultra-performance and sweet rebound
.975" Dia x .4" High (24.77mm Dia x 10.2mm High)
Hard durometer bushings (97.5a) for heavier weight riders & are designed for those looking for a very stable setup in the BoardSide position.
Mediumdurometers (95a) are designed for those looking for a stable setup in the BoardSide position.
Stiffer bushings will result in a more resistant board, which can be an advantage when performing tricks - lightweight riders may benefit from mixing duro's roadside & boardside.
The ShortStreetBarrel offers wicked turnability
Ideal for carving, freestyle & tricks
StreetBarrels: 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.
