The RipTide Tall Barrel KranK Formula Bushing shares the same characteristics as the Barrel Bushing but taller in stature. As the name implies, the Tall Barrel Bushing measures .75" compared to the Barrel Bushing's .60" measurement. This equates to 30% more urethane meaning the rider can produce 30% more lean creating deeper feeling turns.
Best when used as a Double Barrel combo but equally responsive when used in the Roadside position in combo with other shapes and or duro's in the Broadside position.
KranK Formula Bushings are designed specifically to change under pressure and controlled by the amount of compression pressure 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.
The Tall Bushings measure .75" tall requiring trucks that like to use tall bushing stock. Riders can always modify their standard truck with an extended kingpin to allow for the addition length of the Tall Barrel.
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.
