AERA AERA Riptide Pivot TubesRiptide Pivot Tubes are the result of two years of beta testing in every possible condition that Colorado’s high country can deliver.

RipTide’s pivots Cups and Tubes are specifically designed for each truck. In many cases, Riptide offers both tubes and 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 Cups are first molded and then the end is machined to fit the truck’s base plate perfectly, leaving the pivot contact area is as smooth as possible. No machining imperfections and no heat affected zone in the pivot contact area. The Tubes on the other hand are 100% molded and no machining is required.

RipTide + CalStreets Bushings Pivot Cups Canada Pickup Vancouver RipTide's all about designing and developing the sickest gear out there, no doubt. When you're searching for the perfect bushing, you gotta focus on three things: how you ride, the shape of the bushing, and the durometer. The durometer of a bushing is what determines whether it's hard or soft. And that's what's gonna give you that sweet lean you're looking for. But when you're picking out the right durometer, you gotta consider two things: your riding style and your weight. If you're all about bombing hills, you're gonna want a harder bushing for max stability. But if you're more into freeriding, a softer bushing's gonna be your jam. And don't forget about your weight, either. If you're a featherweight, go for a soft bushing. If you're packing some pounds, you'll wanna go harder.
