Skateboard truck bushings are key in building a sturdy, custom skateboard setup. These little urethane pieces are the rings that fit around the kingpin on your trucks, allowing the board to properly pivot and turn. If your bushings are worn-out, you’ll notice that your board will ride rougher and stiffer and that the components themselves will look rough and shredded. CCS has everything you need to upgrade to all-new bushings. Skateboard brands like Deluxe, Bones, Independent, Khiro, Riptide and Venom make some of the best bushings out there.

Skateboard bushings generally come in three distinct shapes: cone, barrel and wedge. Cone/barrel bushings are considered the standard, conventional skateboard bushing and are the most common type on the market. These bushings feature a barrel-shaped bottom bushing and a cone-shaped top for the ideal blend of deck lean and security. Cone skateboard bushings feature two conical bushings, which allow for a higher amount of deck lean. That means that these bushings are ideal for handling sharp turns and carving with ease. Wedge bushings are less common than both other types, but are great for those looking for maximum rebound.

Here at CCS, we’ve got bushings for specific trucks as well as universal styles that work on various trucks, depending on the size. For example, Independent bushings are made to work with all Independent trucks, plus a variety of other mid-to high-profile trucks. We also carry a huge collection of Khiro bushings that come in tons of colors and durometers to meet your specific needs. Make sure to explore all of our bushings for a style that’ll help improve your skating game. CCS is happy to offer free shipping when you spend $50 or more on the best skate parts and accessories.
