Nurse Your Turns with Nipples
Mmmm Nipples.... Orangatang Nipple Bushings are some of the highest rebound bushings on the market. They have a pretty defined center point and really like to spring back to it.
These bushings are amazing for pumping, carving and dancing due to that characteristic. The harder bushings are also very stable in downhill applications.
If you're dancing we recommend you go for the Orange (Soft) if you're under 170 lbs or Purple (Medium) if you're over 170 lbs bushings to make sure that you can get a lot of lean and turn.
Keep in mind we generally ride long wheelbase dancers and prefer that they be very loose. If you prefer a stiffer dancing setup, do not be afraid to go harder.
Recommended Weight Ranges
Below are the recommended weight ranges for riding under 20mph (32 kmh). If you want to go faster, we recommend going slightly harder.
- Soft 85a (orange): 80-180 lbs / 35-85 kg
- Medium 87a (purple): 160-230 lbs / 70-105 kg
- Hard 89a (yellow): 200-270 lbs / 90-125 kg
Trucks We Recommend With Nipples
Nipples were designed around and work extremely well in Paris Trucks. They will also work with Randal Trucks.
We DO NOT recommend Nipple bushings with Calibers, Bear Grizzlys, Gullwing Chargers, or Independents.
