You can't buy new cushions for them.
Very odd size and shape. change the retainers and put suregrip supers in.Youll have to put a little nick in the cushion.
That's what I did.
You have a odd truck as well.

It sounds like sacrilege, but you can also use a Dremel to remove the nub in the cushion seats of the trucks. That allows a bit more scope for what cushions can be used.

Thanks for the info.I think the odd truck is a boen.I'm pretty sure its the same type of clip that was on my boens back in the day.The plates are a step up from the speedmate 2 that i've been skating.

Best of luck with that!!! Scotty has been like a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. He is more than busy and wait times will be longer.

They are worth the wait! So place your order sooner than later, cause it will take awhile.

Keep rollin
