These Pivot Cups are sold as a pair and fit into Bear Vintage Trucks and are available in Green.

The Dime Trick - Hold a dime between your thumb & finger and slot it vertically into the empty pivot cup hole. When the dime is snug in the hole, you need the Bear Grizzly 5.02 Pivot Cups. When it's loose and you can hear it rattle when you shake the baseplate, then you need the larger Vintage-size Pivot Cups, so you ordered 2 pair of the Grizzly which is perfect as long as the dime did not move or rattle in the hole!

Riptide's Premium WFB Pivot Cups are a perfect upgrade to your trucks.

  • RipTide Pivots are specifically designed for each truck.
  • Our Pivots offer a Lively & Responsive feel.
  • Hand-poured into Custom-made molds. The cup end is machined to fit into base plate accurately.
  • There are no machining imperfections and no heat-affected zone in the super smooth pivot contact area.
  • All RipTide WFB Pivots come in our exclusive Internally Lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a durometer.

RipTide Pivot Cups & Tubes are the result of two years of beta testing. We do not offer universal pivot styles because of the compromises a universal pivot forces you to make.  In some cases, we offer both tubes & cups for the same truck.  Both will offer the smooth turning benefits of Riptide's exclusive internally lubricated WFB Urethane in 96a, but the Tube offers even lower friction due to the reduced surface contact with the nose of the hanger.
