Orangatang Nipples

SETS OF 4 BUSHINGS
2 Bottom Barrels, Two Top Barrels & Four Flat Washers!

SEE "COMPATIBILITY" INFO BELOW! Nipples do not work with Landyachtz Bears or Gullwing Chargers

Intention

Designed to provide a lively and energetic ride, Nipples will revitalize any setup for carving, pumping, dancing, freestyle and freeride. 

Formula

Nipples are poured in our extremely high rebound Randy Urethane formula. We stumbled on this urethane a few years ago while testing ultra high rebound formulas for wheels, but we found this urethane to actually be too high rebound for a wheel urethane. Perfect for a bushing.

Specs & Features

Outer diameter: 1 inch

Height (top): 0.56 inch

Height (bottom): 0.66 inch

The bottom bushing carries most of the rider’s weight, so it is compressed more than the top bushing.  The top bushing engages mostly when the rider leans in one direction to turn. To account for this difference in loading, we made the bottom bushing slightly taller than the top. Both top and bottom barrels are beveled on one edge for a better fit with large cupped washers (such as the stock parts on Paris and Tracker Racetrack trucks). However, we recommend flat washers in general.

Hardness

The first release of Nipples will feature three hardness ratings: soft, medium, and hard. The reason we’ve chosen to use a relative hardness scale for our bushings is that Nipples feel and respond differently than many equivalently rated bushings, due to their dimensions. The Nipples feature a slightly larger-than-average diameter that is intended to provide more leverage against the hanger and more meaty volume to compress in every turn. Combined with a double barrel configuration, this allows for a predictable initiation and very consistent resistance throughout the hanger’s travel, even in softer durometers. 

Recommended weight ranges for lower speed (under 20 mph) riding are below. For faster riding, we recommend going harder.

Soft (orange): 80-180 lbs / 35-85 kg
Medium (purple): 160-230 lbs / 70-105 kg
Hard (yellow): 200-270 lbs / 90-125 kg

Washers

We tested many washer configurations while developing our bushings and ultimately found that flat washers on both sides provided the response we were looking for. We found, however, that most commercial flat washers we tested were lacking in one performance area or another. Some were made of soft materials that bent over time, and most did not have the kind of consistency in thickness from one washer to the next that we wanted (thicker washers not only modify the angle at which the hanger sits but also tend to result in excess compression and a deadened feeling). So we decided to develop our own flat washers. 

Our washers feature a 1-inch outer diameter and are 0.055 inch thick. They are made of strong, medium-carbon steel that resists bending. The manufacturing tolerances are very tight, so dimensions are consistent between parts. The wide diameter and low thickness help support the entire bushing without degrading their performance or interfering with the truck’s geometry.
While the Nipples are packaged with our own flat washers, there are many other washer setups that can change the riding experience. For instance, large cupped washers can be used for a slightly more restrictive feel, while a flipped small cup washer on the top bushing will provide a slightly “looser” turning response. 

Compatibility

Nipple bushings fit Paris, Tracker Fasttrack, and Gullwing Charger II trucks. They are not compatible with Bears or Gullwing Chargers. Nipples work with Randal trucks, but they do not sit completely contained in the bushing seat. Since the Randal bushing seat is so low, however, it does not interfere with the performance of the bushings. They fit Caliber trucks, but the lean becomes very restricted past a certain point.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS
A standard for beginners and pros alike!
Item purchased: January 14th 2013
Item use: Constant
Item rating: 5/5

I combine the orange smaller for roadside and the purple larger for boardside. I weigh 150lbs. I boardwalk, carve, dance, and freeride.
Sick carves!
These are the best on the market for carving and cruising. They are extremely high rebound, and make any ride interesting. However, first time I bombed a decent size hill, I got intense speed wobble, and ended up with bad road rash. Could have been my Paris trucks, I don't know. Anyway, for cruising purposes, these are awesome!
finee
the orange ones are so soft really love this bushings, totally fine for carving.
WOW!!
Threw a set of purple in my Paris V2s paired with my YoFace 39, and they're amazing! Nice comfy ride with effortless carves, checks and slides.
rad
I love them. my setup is fullbag speed styler, paris V2 180 mm, orangatang nipples, and forpresident, and sector nine black ball bearings. the nipples are really responsive and thats good for when I do tricks at the local skate park

Very Versatile
I got the purple 87a orangatang bushings almost three weeks ago, and I do admit that these are now my go-to bushings! When you want a nice "carvy" feel with some nice rebound just loosten the nut so that it's flush with the kingpin, but when you want to bomb some hills all you need to do is tighten the nut til it's about 3-4 threads deep on the kingpin. Overall, they are very versatile and well worth the money! When I was still considering buying these I was worried that the double barrels would limit my carving ability, but like I said earlier that certainly wasn't the case. I would also recommend going a little higher on the weight scale, because I'm only 135lbs. and I'm using the purple ones. Those are the ones I would recommend to everyone that is of average weight. Only get the orange if you are really light, and only get the yellow if you are 200+
5 star
These bushings gave me a totally new ride, i ride them on my bear 852s and they a remarkable. First thing with these that i noticed was the turning, they turn like a dream. Downhill they are very stable to speeds up to 40 km/h faster than that and they get wobbly ( if you have the soft ones). between 1 - 10 i give these bushings a 8, there a fun ride and i recommend buying them.
Consistency
I ride a Loaded Bhangra with Paris v2 180s. I weigh 180 lbs and these bushings (medium - purple) are the best I've ridden to date. They're smooth and consistently springy which I find helpful and a big confidence booster while dancing. I'm sold and plan to put them on all of my boards.
O-Tang Nipps
at first I was kind of sketched out, I didn't really understand what bushings were and I just got off using Venom 81a barrel cone bushings that also road great. but I took a chance on these and I was not let down at all. I completely love these I recommend them to all my long boarding friends. All in all I love these and I wouldn't use any other bushings
Pretty good
I got these about a month and a half ago and they are awesome they turn good they are amazing for downhill great all purpose bushings they might work different on different trucks tho I have Gullwing 50 degree 10 inch chargers
Great!
I love these so far! I came off a barrel/cone venom shr combo and they have a very similair feel to those super deep carves and butteryyy
Smh
really didnt not work well on Randal 180s offered very little turning response due to the whole double barrel set up. I got hard yellows and could turn and make the roadside washer hit the truck SO easily not matter how tight the trucks were. Venoms are way better. loaded does not make the best everything by far.
Good Bushings
These bushings are very good for everything. At first i was worried because they are barrel, barrel but they feel very turny. Even though they are very turny they do not feel unstable, they actually feel like they have the perfect combination of turn and stability. The only problem i had with these bushings is that on Paris trucks the washers are a little bigger than the king pin so when you turn the washer slides up or down the kingpin a little and it makes a very annoying clicking noise. but that doesn't affect the noise. so if you are one of those people who don't get annoyed with the little things that don't affect your ride i highly recommend these bushings.
Awful
worst bushings i have ever rode do not ever even think of buying these
