These bushings are for use in standard skateboard trucks (such as Independent, Thunder, Ace, etc.) and are also fully compatible for the Yow Meraki S5 surfskate trucks. Included in the 4 pack of bushings are two short street cones and two street barrels to accommodate most traditional kingpin trucks such as Independent.
The short street cone (0.4″) bushing shape offers the most movement in your skateboard trucks, and allow your trucks to easily achieve their full lean and turn without loosing the feel of the truck. Short Street cone is most ofted used in the Road-Side (Top) position.
In addition, the street barrel (0.5″) bushing shape offers the next step up in stability above the cone bushings and are often used for a broad range of skating disciplines depending on the skaters skill level and personal preference.
Overall, this setup of Short Street Cone/ Street Barrel is for riders looking for still a super carvy feel but with a bit more stability (Especially at higher speeds). With this choice the resistance is more constant (linear) than a Cone/ Cone setup.
This bushing set registers within the hard durometer bushing range and are for are for heavier-weight riders (200+ lbs) and those who are looking for a tighter setup. Please keep in mind, that APS bushings ride a couple of points softer than they test.
As the name implies, this APS 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.
