  • Bones Hardcore Street Bushings - Medium - 91A

    Bones Hardcore Street Bushings - Medium - 91A

    These are replacement 'Hardcore' truck bushings and only appropriate for STREET (conventional) trucks. Please note that these will not be compatible with our selection of RKP trucks. With BONES HardCore Bushings, you will notice a number of positive improvements in the performance of your trucks:

    There is no break-in period. Just put them in, adjust and skate.
    Your trucks will be more responsive.
    Increased truck performance
    Improves your skating experience.
    Your turns will be smooth and positive, not floppy or rigid.
    3 Hardnesses: Hard Bushing: 96A, Medium Bushing: 91A, Soft Bushing: 81A

    When you turn a normal truck, the hanger web puts pressure on one side of each bushing (top and bottom). This squeezes that side and pushes the other side of each bushing away from the kingpin. We call this a single action bushing because only one side of the bushing works for you at a time.

    The HardCore insert in the centre of BONES bushings connects the two sides of each bushing together by bonding them to the HardCore insert. When the hanger web squeezes one side of a HardCore bushing, that side of the bushing reacts just like a normal bushing, but the chemical bond between the HardCore and the cushion keep the bushing from being squeezed out the other side. It actually increases the resistance to turning because it is held in place by the HardCore insert. This means basically that BOTH sides of the BONES HardCore Bushing are resisting your turning force. That’s why we call BONES Bushings the first double action truck bushings. Learn More

  • Loaded Orangatang Knuckles Urethane Longboard Bushings

    Loaded Orangatang Knuckles Urethane Longboard Bushings

    Crafted for quick turning response and smooth edge-to-edge transitions, the new Orangatang Knuckles are the ultimate high-energy bushing upgrade for carving, pumping, dancing, and freestyle longboarding!

    Available in two duros of the extremely high-rebound Randy Thane formula, each pack contains two insert barrel bushings, two gumdrop bushings, two large cup washers, and two small cup washers.

    Knuckles are well suited for riders seeking quicker edge-to-edge response and deeper carving capabilities. The narrower diameter (0.95”) and combination of shapes provide a blend between a stable base (barrel) and a more free-turning top (gumdrop). The result is quicker and easier turn initiation with less resistance and a greater ultimate lean angle!

    Specs:

    Durometers: Soft (Orange, 87a) and Medium (Purple, 90a)

    Diameter: 0.64” (16.3 mm)

    Height: 0.59” (15 mm) barrel + 0.075” (1.91 mm) insert = 0.665” (16.9 mm) total

  • Loaded Orangatang Nipples Bushings - Various Colours Available

    Loaded Orangatang Nipples Bushings - Various Colours Available

    The Orangatang Nipples were designed to provide a lively and energetic ride. Nipples will revitalise any setup for carving, pumping, dancing, freestyle and freeride.
    Formula:
    Nipples are poured in Orangatang's extremely high rebound 'Randy' Urethane formula. They stumbled on this urethane a few years ago while testing ultra high rebound formulas for wheels, but found this urethane to actually be too high rebound for a wheel urethane. This does make it perfect for a bushing however.
    Specs & Features
    Outer diameter: 1 inch
    Height (top/roadside): 0.56 inch
    Height (bottom/boardside): 0.66 inch

    The bottom bushing carries most of the rider’s weight, so it is compressed more than the top bushing. The top bushing engages mostly when the rider leans in one direction to turn. To account for this difference in loading, we made the bottom bushing slightly taller than the top. Both top and bottom barrels are bevelled on one edge for a better fit with large cupped washers (such as the stock parts on Paris and Tracker Racetrack trucks). However, Orangatang recommend flat washers in general - that's why they include their own branded versions.

    Hardness
    The first release of Nipples features three hardness ratings: soft, medium, and hard. These are roughly equivalent to ratings of 85a, 87a, and 89a on the Shore A durometer scale. The reason we’ve chosen to use a relative hardness scale for our bushings is that Nipples feel and respond differently than many equivalently rated bushings, due to their dimensions. The Nipples are a slightly larger-than-average diameter intended to provide more leverage against the hanger and more meaty volume to compress in every turn. Combined with a double barrel configuration, this allows for a predictable initiation and very consistent resistance throughout the hanger’s travel, even in softer durometers. Recommended weight ranges for lower speed (under 20 mph) riding are below. For faster riding, we recommend going harder.
    Soft (orange): 80-180 lbs / 35-85 kg
    Medium (purple): 160-230 lbs / 70-105 kg
    Hard (yellow): 200-270 lbs / 90-125 kg

    Washers:
    Orangatang tested many washer configurations while developing the Nipples and found that flat washers on both sides provided the best action. However most commercial, flat washers can be lacking. Some are of made soft materials that bend or do not have consistency in thickness. Hence the inclusion of Orangatang flat washers featuring a 1" outer diameter and 0.055" thickness. They are made of strong, medium-carbon steel that resists bending. The manufacturing tolerances are very tight, so dimensions are consistent between parts. The wide diameter and low thickness help support the entire bushing without degrading their performance or interfering with the truck’s geometry. While the Nipples are packaged with Orangatang flat washers, there are many other washer setups that can change the riding experience. For instance, large cupped washers can be used for a slightly more restrictive feel, while a flipped small cup washer on the top bushing will provide a slightly “looser” turning response.
    .
    Compatibility
    Nipple bushings fit Paris, Tracker Fastrack, Gullwing Charger II, and old (pre-2010) Bear trucks. They are not compatible with new Bears, Gullwing Chargers, or Independent Trucks. Nipples work with Randal trucks, but they do not sit completely contained in the bushing seat. Since the Randal bushing seat is so low, however, it does not interfere with the performance of the bushings. They fit Caliber trucks, but the lean becomes very restricted past a certain point. This compatibility list is based on the trucks we use most. Nipples will fit in any truck that can accommodate a 1-inch diameter bushing with a height of 0.66 (bottom) and 0.56 (top) inch Learn More
