RipTide APS Magnum longboard bushings
* Sold as set of 2 **
The Magnum is the new Chubby bushing. The shape offers the highest stability of all the shapes and work best in a truck that has a stepped bushing seat (Paris and Caliber) to take advantage of the secondary step in the bushing. They still turn very well and can be used in a softer duro if you are looking for a stable yet plush and comfortable setup. It is one of the most versatile bushings because of its size and shape.
The Magnum is the latest bushing developed for the Paris truck. Most of the Loaded team are on Riptide bushings. The bushing is compatible with these trucks: Bennett (roadside), Caliber, Gullwing Charger 2 (boardside), Gullwing Stalker (boardside), Indeesz (boardside), Kahalani Cast and Paris.
What is the difference between the Canon and the Magnum in a Paris truck?
A deep lean but slightly more restrictive than the Canon.
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 lower resistance and a cupped washer for higher resistance.
