Who doesn't like Nipples from Otang come in 4 pack with super hard washers for your trucks. Orange is the softest for a super responsive truck or light people.

Nipples are poured in our extremely high rebound Randy Urethane formula. We stumbled on this urethane a few years ago while testing ultra high rebound formulas for wheels, but we found this urethane to actually be too high rebound for a wheel urethane. Perfect for a bushing.

  • Height (top): 0.56 inch
  • Height (bottom): 0.66 inch

The bottom bushing carries most of the rider’s weight, so it is compressed more than the top bushing.  The top bushing engages mostly when the rider leans in one direction to turn. To account for this difference in loading, we made the bottom bushing slightly taller than the top. Both top and bottom barrels are beveled on one edge for a better fit with large cupped washers (such as the stock parts on Paris and Tracker Racetrack trucks). However, we recommend flat washers in general

  • Soft (orange): 80-180 lbs / 35-85 kg
  • Medium (purple): 160-230 lbs / 70-105 kg
  • Hard (yellow): 200-270 lbs / 90-125 kg
