  • Sale
  • Regular price $130.00 NZD

This kit is specifically designed for Dual Kingpin Skateboard Trucks. Lots of E-Skate brands use these trucks and they are traditionally unstable or too tight. Our kit helps the trucks work to their full potential.

Bushing Duros Explained:

   APS 97.5a Box (Tightest) - Our hardest compound for riders looking for a very stiff setup with little carve and for our heavier riders. 

   Krank 96a Box (Tight) - This is typically for 200lb+ (91kg+) riders or for riders who prefer a stiffer setup with more stability and less carve.  

   Krank 93a Box (Medium) - Riders around 150lb - 200lb (68kg - 91kg) will usually like this option and we recommend this the most. This setup has a more carve than the 93/96 box while keeping the stable feel that a tighter setup would have.

   Krank 90a Box (Soft) - For Riders around 100lb - 150lb (45kb - 68kg) who want an easier turn than the 90/93 box. This setup is starting to get a lot easier to carve.

   Krank 87a Box (Softer) - Riders 100lb (45kg) and less recommended. This is our softest setup for this kit and is for our young riders or those who want the most carve possible. Our bushing shapes mixed with the Krank formula continue to keep the carve stable and predictable.

Pivot Cups:

   96a Green or Cracked Ice - Our pivot cups give you a nice buttery feel with no squeak! The WFB 96a has been our favorite formula and is a perfect fit for all riders. Need just Pivots? - DKP Common Pivot Cups

FAQ & Notes:

NOTE! Meepo Hurricane Riders:  While the Meepo's are great E-Boards, we have found that they are 'twitchier' than other E-Boards and we suggest that you order a Duro harder than you think you need.

What if I want my setup to carve more?

   - Try using the bonus cone bushing we supplied in the middle of the box in front position 4 (roadside). You can also use the flat washers on the barrels (position 3) if you need more carve. Don't be shy to play around with washer configuration. Make sure you get the kingpin nut snug enough to not loosen and don't tighten down to much (Making the bushing bulge excessively). 

Can I get my ride a bit more stable for speeds?

   - Krank is a great formula because it responds very well to how tight you make the kingpin. Make sure you use the cup washers on the barrels. If the bushing is becoming very bulged and you are still not happy with how your setup is performing. Give us a call or email and we will be more than happy to help.

Additional Notes:

All of our box kit setups maximize your boards stability and predictability. We have tested and hand picked our Bushing shapes, height and duros combos for each truck we have a box for. We have found our that if you make the front truck a bit easier to carve, it will make all the difference in the world. Our Chubby and FatCone shapes provide superb stability when on the board-side(bottom) slot while the barrel and cone bushings let you carve more on the road-side(top) bushing slots. Hope you love the upgraded setup!
