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 Fat Cone Shape:
With the characteristics taken from the standard cone shape and morphed into a bigger, fuller shape, the Fat Cone Bushings offer a deep turn while at the same time providing stability due to the added volume. The ideal option for fast freeride.
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.
