• Sold as a pair of pivot cups with a sticker
Each Pivot Cup from RipTide Sports is designed for a specific truck these are made for Independent Truck Co's Traditional Kingpin skateboard trucks.
The Pivot Cups free up the hangers ability to move, and provide a slop free supportive turn.
RipTide’s dedicated urethane craftsmen hand pour each pivot cup in custom made molds.Then the end of the pivot is machined to fit each trucks specific baseplate.
Due to the molding techniques there aren’t any machining ooopsies, nor heated spots where the urethane might bubble in the pivot contact areas.
The real deal is RipTides exclusive internally lubricated WFB 96a urethane….they won’t say it, but it could be the best pivot urethane on the market…we can say it, we just did.
RipTide doesn’t do universal fit.Each cup was designed to preserve each trucks geometry and fit.Their urethane has been tested through the worst of anything Colorado has to offer, and is proven through all the seasons in Kansas City too.
If you are updating your bushings you owe it to yourself to gussy up those pivot cups too.
