At Griffin Skateboards, we have noticed there is a problem with the standard washer cups on all stock skateboard trucks today. People are snapping their kingpins on their trucks left and right. The grade 8 washer and grade 8 kingpin in combination with bushings that are too soft are hanging up the kingpin and snapping it.


That's not the problem. The problem is their trucks are too tight.

Blair, read Griffin's postings about the washers over on the Silverfish forum. He goes into more detail there, and it makes sense to how/why the product works.

Did that video say 24% more performance? I'd like to see the math on that.

I've been using a set of these & are very impressed with them. Good product!

Yeah...kids won't spring more than $10 for a set of bearings, but they buy precision bushing washers for $16.
