Orangatang Bushings - Knuckles
Orangatang made progressive new shaped bushing out of their loved Randy Thane formula, which they used on Nipples as well. New Gumdrop bushing shape, that allows you to turn with ease, and be more agile with control of your Trucks.
Soft (orange): 35-85 kg
Medium (purple): 70-105 kg
Each pack contains two insert barrel bushings, two gumdrop bushings, two large cup washers, and two small cup washers.
Smoother edge-to-edge transition, quicker turning response, the Orangatang Knuckles are great, high-rebound bushing upgrade for all your pumping, carving, dancing, and freestyling needs.
Available in two Duros: soft (orange, 87a) and medium (medium, 90a).
The insert barrel features a small “step” to fill the gap between the kingpin and the hole of the hanger, reducing play in the assembly for more precise response.
The gumdrop is a smooth and subtle blend between a barrel and the more traditional cone shape, providing enhanced agility. The rounded edge allows for ultra-smooth turn initiation and improved interface with the washers.
Knuckles are sized for compatibility with most trucks and feature precise tolerances for a snug fit on the kingpin. Poured in the same extremely high-rebound Randy Thane formula as the Orangatang Nipples, these two bushing options offer distinct performance characteristics.
Nipples are a great choice for riders seeking maximum rebound for pumping and carving, lively yet supportive turning, and reduced wheel bite. The wide (1” diameter) double-barrel design offers a highly defined center point with immediate resistance to turn that increases progressively with a lean angle.
In contrast, Knuckles are well suited for riders seeking quicker edge-to-edge response and deeper carving capabilities. The narrower diameter (0.95”) and combination of shapes provide a blend between a stable base (barrel) and a more free-turning top (gumdrop). The result is quicker and easier turn initiation with less resistance and a greater ultimate lean angle.
