The Riptide APS Street Barrel Bushings are for use in standard skateboard trucks (such as Independent, Thunder, and Ace). Barrels offer an excellent balance between stability and control. APS does not change much when you tighten the kingpin nut past snug. 

With a soft durometer rating of 85a, this bushing is ideal for lighter-weight riders (Over 75lbs).

These are awesome as a double-barrel application, but amazingly dynamic when paired with a Cone.

Depending on whether you’re searching to find a carvy, surfy feel, or one with more stability, these Riptide APS Street Barrel Bushings will accommodate all with the right pairing configurations!

For a complete traditional kingpin setup you will need a set of regular height bushings boardside, and short size bushings roadside.

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.
