RipTide Fat Cone KranK Formula Bushings are a hybrid of the Barrel and Chubby Bushings. The Fat Cone has the circumference of a Barrel where the bushing sits on the truck and gradually widens to the size of a Chubby where the washer sits. This combination allows the rider to lean more than a Chubby while applying progressive resistance the more the rider leans. Fat Cones have the same initial stability as a Barrel but the more you lean, the more resistance you will encounter. The unique Krank Formula allows the rider to adjust urethane by simply applying more or less compression pressure on the bushing.
RipTide Fat Cone KranK Bushings are perfect for riders looking for stability at higher speeds while still maintaining maneuverability for slides, high speed carving and downhill applications. Fat Cones are a good choice if you need to restrict the end of your lean to prevent wheelbite.
Try combining the RipTide Fat Cone KranK Bushings with a set of RipTide Barrel KranK Bushings. This combination produces better stability at higher speeds while still allowing the rider freedom to perform controlled carving and sliding.
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.
The RipTide Fat Cone KranK Bushing measures .60" tall making them a perfect fit for reverse kingpin "cast" trucks such as Paris, Calibers, Bear Grizzly and Randals.
KranK Bushings are unique in that the urethane is designed to change by simply adjusting the truck tightness. Two rotations of the kingpin 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.
