Venom SHR Double Barrel Bushings
Please Note: A quantity of "1" is enough for a single truck. Order 2 for a complete setup. Washers are NOT included.
Top Tip: Want something in between double conicals and double barrels? Try pairing a set of SHR Double Barrels and SHR Super Carves (Conicals) for perfect mix!
Venom Bushings are considered the highest quality bushings by experienced downhill riders and longboard enthusiasts. The SHR (Super High Rebound) Double Barrel Bushings are used for 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!
From the various Venom bushings available, the Double Barrels were chosen for ESK8 because of their superior stability at higher speeds due to the extra urethane compared to conical bushings. They offer excellent compression and release back to center with every turn.
If you have not tried a Venoms on your downhill freeride board or cruising longboard, you have not yet felt a rebounding truck. These bushings compress and release to perfect center!
Plain and simple, the Downhill Double-Barrel Pack is built for speed. Double barrels, teamed with cup washers can give your setup that fully locked in feel that gives you the confidence you need to grab some serious velocity.
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.
Choosing Your Setup
When selecting your bushings, remember to select for your weight, not necessarily just for color! Each durometer will provide a different response and ride feel. In general, when mixing and matching, it is recommended to have the harder (higher duro) bushing boardside and the softer (lower duro) bushing roadside. Refer to the "Downhill" section of the Venom Guide to get your decision making process started!
