RipTide APS Lacroix electric skateboard bushings
** Sold as set of 2 **
Proprietary bushing for Lacroix electric skateboard trucks.
APS stands for Animated Polymer System, and as the name implies, this 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. RipTide recommend tightening to the point where it is difficult to turn the bushing in the bushing seat by hand. Use a flat washer for resistance.
- Hard durometer bushings (80a) are for heavier-weight riders (over 125lbs) and allow for a nice tight set-up.
- Medium durometer bushings (70a - 75a) are for medium-weight riders (75 - 125lbs) & those looking for a looser setup in the RoadSide position when coupled with a harder duro bushing.
- Soft durometer bushings (60a - 65a) are for light-weight riders & those looking for a loose setup in the RoadSide position.
