Description

Description:
RipTide Barrel Krank Formula Bushings provide for a stable platform and slightly higher rebound than the Cones.  Their straight wall shape is very responsive and predictable with a solid level of rebound to set your trucks back to centerline after quick turns.  The unique Krank Formula allows the rider to adjust urethane by simply applying more or less compression pressure on the bushing.   

Best Use:
RipTide Barrel KranK Formula Bushings are perfect for higher speed freeriding and downhill.

Best Combo:
Try combining the RipTide KranK Formula Barrel Bushings with a set of RipTide KranK Cone Bushings.  This combination produces aggressive carves and low to mid-speed freeriding.

Tuning:
KranK Formula Bushings are designed specifically to change under pressure and controlled by the amount of compression pressure applied when adjusting the kingpin nut.  Riders have great flexibility to choose between very little pressure to produce a loose feel to two full rotations of the kingpin nut for the stiffest feel at centerpoint.  KranKs turn similar under the same durometer specifications as other brands.  The best washer application for KranKs are cupped, precision flat or precision cupped washers.

Application:
The RipTide Barrel KranK Bushing measures .60" tall making them a perfect fit for reverse kingpinin "cast" trucks such as Paris, Calibers, Bear Grizzly and Randals.

KranK Formula:
KranK Bushings are unique in that the urethane is designed to change by simply adjusting the truck tightness.  Two rotations of the kingpin nut in either direction will dial in your desired stiffness and rebound.  Since the urethane changes by compression, KranK Bushings do not need a large variety of durometers.  Kranks are available in 84a, 87a, 90a, 93a, 96a.
