The Keg – Venom Bushings

Interested in more about Venom and their products? Check out our History of the Venom Cannibal, where we chronicle the evolution of some of the community’s favorite wheels.

Looking for some lean? Venom’s got it in The Keg! Venom Bushings just dropped a new shape for trucks that accept tall bushings. Similar to a stepped bushing in that they’re designed to give more progressive resistance and rebound than a barrel but they improve on the idea by eliminating the “hard-stop”. The shape still fits in most bushing seats thanks to the curved side profiles. They’re poured in the HPF formula and measure .75″ tall.

Venom recommends using them board-side for a softer setup that doesn’t sacrifice stability. We find these bushings very affordable and great for beginner longboarders. Learn more about why stability is important in buying a new longboard with our beginner’s guide to picking your first longboard.

Available now at Muir Skate & Amazon, grab a set at the link!

Skate Blood Orange Insert Bushings

Insert Bushings – Skate Blood Orange

New Insert Bushings from Skate Blood Orange are shipping on the latest Precision Trucks from Caliber! Poured in their responsive Ultra-HR bushing formula, the new bushings are designed to eliminate the air gap between the bushing, hanger and kingpin. Less play between the interfaces means dramatically improved responsiveness and rapid return to center. While they aren’t currently available individually, the bushings are also compatible with Caliber’s Cast trucks!

Each Precision truck comes with 3 pairs in the durometer/color combinations listed below:

  • Maroon 86a
  • Red 89a
  • Yellow 92a

Caliber + Skate Blood Orange

The partnership we love! Since the beginning, Caliber has used Blood Orange bushings with their trucks–like their Hollow Standards. It really helped them deliver the full package to riders when they were young. And we’re happy to say that they’ve continued the partnership.

Factory Bushings Line Up

Factory Bushings – Ronin Trucks

Ronin just announced the new Factory Bushings series based on their popular Beverage series. Factory Bushings are intended to make the Beverage series more available and incorporate features and improvements from their factory riders.

What’s New with Ronin Factory Bushings?

Ronin factory riders discovered that their bushings were more effective when the mold-release had been removed. As a result, the interface between the trucks and bushings provided a more consistent ride. By sanding and cleaning the top and bottom of their bushings, Factory Bushings is offering a race-ready bushing straight out of the package.

Available soon at Muir Skate and Ronin. We’ll provide an update and change the link when they’re up.

Ronin has made progress with their bushings and trucks, releasing the Ronin Cast Katana. Check out our full review! Matheus gives us one of our most in-depth reviews ever, letting us know how he thinks of the ride and what he thinks of the features on the Katana.

Are you riding the OEM Factory Bushings? We wanna know! Snap a pic of your board with Ronin gear, or whatever you’re riding, and tag us on Instagram for a chance to get featured.
