The new Venom Plug Barrel Bushings for Caliber Trucks are designed to remove lateral play from the truck by filling the gaps between the hanger and the kingpin. This results in a quicker return to center, increased responsiveness, and a more direct turning feel over a traditional barrel bushing.
All new Caliber Trucks come with a Caliber 89a plug bushing, depending on your truck, the 44s had a downhill barrel with the plug bushing and the 50s a cone.
These kits are an upgrade to your Caliber truck. Each packet contains two bushings (one plug and one barrel) enough for ONE truck.
A general guide on what duro you should be looking at
85kg+ : 95a
This is a very general guide and does not suit everyone. Base what you need off how your truck performs now. It currently has 89a standard. If you want more turn then look at 87a or 85a. If you want more stability then go up to 93a or 95a.
Why buy these bushings?
You have Fifty Caliber trucks and want barrels to go fast or create more resistance to bounce in and out of a carve.
You have Forty Fours and want to customise to your skate style. These bushings can give a deep dive when you need it, add a bit more nimbleness to the set up, can create more stability.
You need to surf again. Nothing worse than tight trucks when you want to cut back and carve. Get some serious soft bushings and feel alive again. Soft bouncey urethane is good for the soul!!
