NoSno bushings

Post by Brennig » Mon Feb 13, 2012 11:39 am

Yo peeps.

I now have two lots of bushings for my trucks, soft and medium. Has anyone tried using a different combination, e.g. soft on top and medium on bottom, or soft at the front trucks and medium at the back?

Cheers.

I use different durometer eggs front and rear for my channel trucks.

Try it.

Hard at the front, soft at the back is the generally used combo I think.
This means that the front wheels are stable, so for straight line speed put your weight over the front to avoid getting speed wobble, but when you want to carve, put your weight back a little and the handling changes to a looser ride.
Works well on tarmac for channel trucks with say mbs yellow/orange or trampa yellow/green.
Dunno about NoSnos.

For surf-style carve with channel trucks, I do the opposite. Loose (soft) in the nose and harder in the tail. For all but my Matrix Wides, I use MBS Yellow up front and orange in the rear. Makes them respond more like a surfboard.

On my Trampa I ride soft nose / hard tail. No science, I just prefer it that way.

My initial thinking was that most vehicles turn from the front. I guess I just got used to it that way.
