APS™ Formula: Animated Polymer System
The bulky shape of the RipTide Fat Cone Bushings offers blend between a Barrel and a Chubby. The circumference of a barrel where the bushings sit on the truck, and then gradually widens to the size of a chubby where the washers sit. This gives you the ability to get more lean than a chubby, while giving you progressive resistance the more you turn (bushings gets more restrictive the more you turn).
APS Fatcone Bushings give you the stability you need for fast freeride without losing too much of that carvy goodness.
The fat cones work best board side in combination with a barrel on the roadside.
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. We 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.
