What cushions should I buy?

I'd stick with your skate manufacturers brand of cushions. Also don't be fooled by the whole 'double action!' thing, all derby skates have double action trucks

Hannah De Noted. I hadnt even noticed the 'double action' I read 'cushions' and 'medium' and I was done. Thanks Tess xXx

Jessica da Silva Ask on the forum under skates and gear and I might tell you mwhaha

Tess Robinson They seem quite expensive for being glorified bits of rubber! The powerdyne magic cushions are cheaper and probably just as good

The sure grip cushions are the cheapest ones and very good, the softest are blue but you might not want to go that soft maybe?

You need to get the right ones for your plate so you should check what you have now (eg are the all barrels or are 4 conical and 4 barrels) see here what I mean:

(you can buy them at skate inline in the galleries though ;))

Also I saw a good tip somewhere on how to remove them cause they can be quite hard to get off the kingpin. Will see if I can find it again x
