Product Blog: Acid Tuning – Bushings

Some days ago I´ve received a letter from Acid Tuning. I was really surprised about that package because it arrived in my mailbox faster than I thought about it. Acid Tuning is a bushing and pivot cup company from Russia. Surprised about the fact that these are from Russia? Y0u hear Russia again??? As I told you more than once, I´m a big fan of the fast growing Russian fingerboard scene. The owner of the brand is called Philippov Petr and the company is based in Saint-Petersburg (Санкт-Петербург). This is a beautiful city right at the sea!
So today we will have a look at the bushings made by Acid. I was really looking forward to this package because I really love good bushings. The package was filled with a lot of happiness for your fingerboard.
I´ve received 3 different colors of bushings. Check out the overview:
Lets check out all the three colors.
All I can say is: these bushing are soft. Soft as hell for all the loose truck lovers with an awesome rebound. The trucks will be “pushed back” after every turn. Just awesome. The material feels like rubber but the bushings are bouncing like a bouncy ball. You remember the sentence “Do not overtighten nuts”? Well, it´s the same on bushings. To have cool medium or soft responsive bushings you should not overtight them. If you prefer a tight and hard setup you should take other bushings.
All the bushings have a really precise cut and shpae as you can see on the images. The shape of the bushings is perfect for Blackriver-Trucks, but I´ve mounted them to my Ytrucks and they work as good as on Brr´s. I didn´t receive a set of the pivot cups, but these look more than awesome on the Acid Instagram page: @acidtuning .
I really don´t know how much these bushings are. The only way to order is a DM on Instagram and all I can say about it, the last stock was sold out really quick. Up to now Acid is not the most famous bushing company on this planet, but the bushings work superb and are one of the best soft bushings I´ve ever had. And the shipping was fast, thats another +.
THX a lot Philippov for these super nice bushings. Cant wait whats coming next from Acid! You´re on the right way.
