APS (Animated Polymer System) Formula:
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.
The Barrel Shape:
The barrel bushing shape offers a deep turn as well as a stable ride. The barrel is the traditional go-to shape for freeriding and bombing.
Please note: The equivalent durometer of a Rip Tide bushings to a standard bushings is about 3-5 durometers higher. Thus a 93a Rip Tide bushings would correspond to a 88a conventional bushing.
