RESPONSIVE DESIGN – Two unique shapes for highly responsive and customizable turning. Sized for compatibility with most trucks. The inner diameter features precise tolerances for a snugger fit around the kingpin. The insert barrel features a small “step” to fill the gap between the kingpin and the hole of the hanger, reducing play in the assembly for a more precise response. The gumdrop is a smooth and subtle blend between a barrel and the more traditional cone shape, providing enhanced agility. The rounded edge allows for ultra-smooth turn initiation and improved interface with the washers.

HIGHLY TUNABLE – In the standard configuration, the insert barrel is placed on the bottom and the gumdrop on the top (like a traditional barrel/cone setup). You can also set up your trucks with double insert barrels (the height of the insert is half the thickness of a Paris bushing seat) or double gumdrops. Replace the included cup washers with flat washers for a less restrictive, highly linear turning rate.

RANDY THANE – Knuckles are poured in our extremely high-rebound Randy Thane formula, ideal for responsive, energetic turning.

KNUCKLES VS. NIPPLES – While both Knuckles and Nipples use the same Randy urethane formula, the two bushings offer distinct performance characteristics. Nipples are a great choice for riders seeking maximum rebound for pumping and carving, lively yet supportive turning, and reduced wheelbite. The wide (1” diameter) double-barrel design offers a highly defined center point with immediate resistance to turn that increases progressively with lean angle.

    $17.99CAD

    Is it cold in here or are you just sporting some perky bushings? Stuff these chubby puppies into your trucks and get ready to bounce out of every carve with tons of energy and rebound.  Poured with our extra lively and energetic Randy Urethane, which we came upon while testing wheels but had slide characteristics that were a bit hmmmmm . . . premature?  Too eager for a wheel, but just excitable enough to squeeze between your washers.

    Sold as a set of four (4), including four thin and strong flat washers. Nipples are NOT recommended for every truck on the market, but they do work well with Paris, Tracker Fastracks and Randals (among others).

In contrast, Knuckles are well suited for riders seeking quicker edge-to-edge response and deeper carving capabilities. The narrower diameter (0.95”) and combination of shapes provide a blend between a stable base (barrel) and a more free-turning top (gumdrop). The result is quicker and easier turn initiation with less resistance and a greater ultimate lean angle. Additionally, Knuckles are compatible with most longboard trucks (including Paris, Bear, Randal, Carver, Gullwing, Tracker, Caliber, Atlas, Bolzen, Aera, Rogue, PNL, Ronin, etc).

Whether you’re more into Nipples, or Moose Knuckles, you’re bound to be left smiling!
