We recommend purchasing bushings from Riptidesports.com.
Our CALIBER II pivot is the perfect fit.
There are tons of combinations available, I suggest the following: Cones, Canons, FatCones and Magnums as well as the Caliber II pivots.
Canons are a slightly larger diameter than our Barrels so they fit the seat of the 218mm trucks better. I suggest orienting the Canon or Barrel with the sharp edge towards the hanger for the tightest fit.
With the durometer remaining constant the relative feel is the following
- Cone / Cone: Extremely carvey set up, generally used for low speed pedestrian slalom, campus cruising.
- Cone / Canon: Playful carving set up, good for commuting where tight turns are occasionally needed. Low to medium speeds
- Canon / Canon: Versatile set up for medium to high speeds, can be run loose for tight turns and tighter for high speeds. Response is very linear
- Canon / FatCone: Similar to the Canon / Canon but the response is progressive. Resistance ramps up progressively the further you go.
- Canon / Magnum: Extremely stable set up, meant for very high speeds or a heavier rider with a wide board
- Harder KranK durometer bushings (96a & 93a) are for heavier-weight riders (over 140lbs) as harder durometer bushings allow for a nice tight set-up.
- Medium KranK durometer bushings (90a & 87a) are best for medium-weight riders (100 - 140lbs) as well as for those looking for a looser setup in the RoadSide position when coupled with a harder duro bushing.
