Bloody Elk! Juicier Bounce, Tighter Package - Orangatang have crafted these Knuckles for quick turning response and smooth edge-to-edge transitions, the new Orangatang Knuckles are the ultimate high-energy bushing upgrade for carving, pumping, dancing, and freestyle longboarding!
Available in two duros of O'tang's extremely high-rebound Randy Thane formula, each pack contains two insert barrel bushings, two gumdrop bushings, two large cup washers, and two small cup washers.
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 a more precise response. Whereas, 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.
Orangatang 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 wheelbite. The wide double-barrel design offers a highly defined centre point with immediate resistance to turn that increases progressively with lean angle.
In contrast, the new Knuckles are well suited for riders seeking quicker edge-to-edge response and deeper carving capabilities. The narrower diameter 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!
