What hardness do I need?

Just like with skateboard wheels, the hardness of your bushings is represented by a durometer value. The higher this value, the harder the skate bushing. It determines how loose or tight your trucks move. Harder bushings will make your trucks spin less and provide more stability and provide more stability at higher speeds. Softer bushings make your trucks easier to steer.. This makes your board more manoeuvrable, but less stable.

Bushings come in different shapes, each with their specific characteristics and suited for a different skate style. The three most common types are the cylindrical, conical and double cylindrical skate bushings. We like to explain the difference, so you can make the right choice.

1. Cylindrical bushings

The most common are the cylindrical bushings. This set consists of 2 conical and 2 cylindrical bushings. This shape is included in the standard package of skateboard trucks. That's why they are called standard bushings. The lower bushing has a cylindrical shape and provides stability. While the upper conical bushings provide the turning movement.

2. Conical bushings

Both bushings have a conical shape. The smaller surface area provides a very smooth turning movement. This makes them ideal for turning and carving. They have a very good responsiveness and are therefore ideal for street skating. Many skateboarders swear by the conical Bones Bushings.

3. Double Cylindrical Bushings

Both the upper and lower bushings have the same wide cylindrical shape. Because of this, they have a very wide surface area and provide the most stability. Ideal for downhill skaters who like high speeds. Less suitable for street skating.
