Longboard bushings are one of the smallest parts of your set up but can make a huge difference in terms of your performance, comfort and control! If you’re just starting out, normally we recommend you test out your stock bushings to get a feel for your riding style. From there you can upgrade and customise your bushings according to your weight and the form you’ve developed.
Swapping out this component can change your ride drastically. So read on to learn more before you buy your next set!
There are two main elements to consider when buying bearings, the durometer (hardness) and the shape (cone or barrel). Other factors to consider are rider weight, truck design, and the flexibility of your deck. Personal preference is up there too.
The world of bushings can be very complicated, so feel free to call or drop by the store to talk to our expert team about which bushings would suit your style and weight best. We have a huge range of colours, brands, and different durometers and shapes to ensure we fit you with the right bushings.
