- Specifically designed for each truck
- Lively & Responsive
- Hand-poured into Custom-made molds, then the cup end is machined to fit the truck's base plate perfectly
- No machining imperfections and no heat-affected zone in the super smooth pivot contact area
- RipTide's exclusive Internally Lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a
RipTide Pivot Cups & Tubes are the result of two years of beta testing in every possible condition that Colorado's high country can deliver.
RipTide's Pivots are specifically designed for each truck. We do not offer universal styles because of the compromises a universal pivot forces you to make. In some cases, we offer both tubes & cups for the same truck. Both offer the smooth turning benefits of RipTide's exclusive internally lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a, but the Tube offers even lower friction due to the reduced surface contact with the nose of the hanger.
Indy Trucks are our go-to all-around super fun Trucks that offer something to every level of skater in a multitude of disciplines!
Pivot Cups are offered in two colors: Neon Green & Cracked Ice Blue. The WFB 96a urethane formula for the Pivot Cups is the same, only the color is different.

The Cone / Cone setup is for those looking for a very carvy or surfy feel. With this choice, the further you lean, the less resistance there is.
The Cone / Barrel setup is for those looking for a carvy or surfy feel but with a bit more stability. With this choice the resistance is constant throughout the range of motion.
The Barrel / Barrel setup is for those looking for higher stability at higher speeds but still highly maneuverable for slides, high speed carving and downhill applications.
The Barrel / FatCone setup is for those looking for higher stability at higher speeds but still highly maneuverable for slides, high speed carving and downhill applications. This setup is ideal when you need to restrict the ends of the lean to prevent wheelbite or if you just like a more progressive feel to your setup.
The Barrel / Chubby is our go to set up for most applications due to its versatility. It is excellent for Freeride, Fast Freeride, Technical Downhill, Downhill and just flat out speed.
