PLEASE READ: Note from Scott and Pablo: We love Venom bushings for their responsiveness and performance. In fact, we've been riding Venom since 2005. If you are purchasing Super Carve Cones and you are extremely sensitive to perfection, please be aware that we do our best to match the colors and shapes with the barrels when you order the Standard Barrel/Cone combo. Due to multi-batch manufacturing, the colors may vary in shades. Also note that 94a and 98a Cones are not pretty, but they do feel amazing. If you want perfection, order Venom.
Note: "Quantity: 1" is enough for one truck. Buy TWO (2) packs for your complete longboard! White and Grey color bushings may come with a variation in the color. White bushings are affected by light that might cause discoloration.
Double Note: Purchasing a Venom SHR Standard Bushing Pack "w/ Washers" means you're getting one large cupped washer and one small cupped washer along with your bushings.
Why must I need washers? Because the washer gives the bushing some support. If you were to run flat washers all around (or no washers) then the bushing wouldn't be bouncing back as much as you would hope. A cup on the bottom allows for a nice rebound, while a cup on top allows for a nice controlled lean.
We want to help you choose your bushing for your body weight! So here's a mini cheat sheet to get you started:
50-100 lbs: 73-80a
75-125 lbs: 78-82a
100-145 lbs: 80-85a
125-175 lbs: 80-87a
145-195 lbs: 82-90a
175-220 lbs: 85-93a
200-250 lbs: 90-93a
225 lbs and up: 90-98a
Venom SHR ("Super High Rebound") Standard Longboard Skateboard Bushings are used for moderate Downhill Freeride, carving and cruising. With a little more spring out out of your turns you can spend less time trying to level yourself out, and more time shredding!
Venom SHR bushings are considered the highest quality bushings by experienced downhill riders and Longboard enthusiasts. If you have not tried a Venoms on your Racing board or Cruising longboard, you have not yet felt a rebounding truck. These bushings compress and release to perfect center. Choose your durometer carefully. Don't just purchase the bushing because the color matches your skateboard. You should consider your weight and board shape carefully before ordering your bushings. Call us if you need additional assistance!

The idea behind the standard pack is “Best of both worlds”. The barrel on the bottom to give you solid stability, and the cone on top to deliver ridiculous turn. This combo is often used by people who want to ride a juicy setup, but sometimes encounter the odd massive hill. Barrels: .6″ tall x .97″ wide Cones: .6″ tall x .93″/.65″ wide
Super High Rebound (SHR): We started working on SHR in March of 2009. There seemed to be a demand for an insanely high rebound bushing, but there just didn't seem to be any good ones on the horizon. The problem was, the other super springy bushings on the market were only super springy. No damping. Cars have springs AND shocks for a reason! All the rebound with no control has a great effect on stability and adjust-ability. If you try to tighten your trucks with no damping, a lot of the time the bushing just squishes, and you get no more tension.
