Our complete Freestyle and Dancing decks come with 180mm 50º Arsenal Trucks and tall barrel bushings, and if you are a heavier rider or like your trucks more stable to handle speed, don’t change a thing. But if you want to customize your ride with just the turn of a wrench, we partnered with RipTide Sports to include an extra set of Tall Krank 87a bushings with each complete deck. We recommend exchanging them with your roadside bushings if you’re looking for deep, responsive turns and a softer ride while practicing longboard dancing or even just cruising around.
Our complete longboards that include RipTide bushings are:
- Hoedown Medium Flex
- Hoedown Soft Flex
- County Line Soft Flex
- County Line Firm Flex
RipTide's proprietary Krank formula was developed to gives you the freedom of having either a soft or stable ride by simply tightening or loosening your trucks without the need to swap out your bushings.
