Introducing the 2013 New
Maestro Longboard Family
When we first unveiled the Maestro board in 2010 we changed the way alot of people thought about a commuter skateboard. The forward cambered and drop deck design provided for a uniquely awesome riding experience for all-around commuting and city menacing. A large percentage of those who stepped on the board fell in love and have become some of the most loyal Bustin supporters we have.
It's scary changing a good thing, but we just couldn't help ourselves from innovating the Maestro Series again. The classic Maestro is still available as a forward cambered, 8ply maple deck with signature Maestro shape. It is what has become known as the quintessential NYC push culture board. But we have chosen to break off from the fiberglass Maestro and the Maestro Mini designs with entirely new shapes and molds to provide for a more action packed, stronger, and more functionally strong design for all of the freestyle and freeride maneuvers that riders are doing today.
Maestro Mini v2
The Maestro Mini got a major overhaul for 2013 but still retains its stashable steez. As a compact, low, lightweight, versatile shape, this deck has been one of our most popular since it first came out. Our redesign is primarily centered around strength with increased versatility as the main goal. Larger kicks make this deck super poppable, while an increased concave at the neck provides micro wheel flares as locators and a ton more strength, which was needed when we gave you all that extra leverage over the tail. 8-ply design makes this deck stiff, while the low profile shape keeps it lightweight. This will be a favorite among urban commuters, freestylers, hallway rampagers, and micro-thrashers.
The classic Maestro is staying classy. 8-Ply design provides a mild flex. The rails have been squared off to provide a little more feedback during slides, and every detail has been combed over to create the most aesthetically pleasing design possible. Still incredibly low for easy pushing, still forward cambered for a lively push, still wedged truck mounts for an incredibly nimble ride. Dyed veneers, refined shape, and a new graphic make this the most awesome all-wood Maestro to date!
The fiberglass Maestro has been a huge hit for us with all the freestyle riders out there, but we've heard the murmurs from our customers asking for a symmetrical design, and we weren't just going to stop there. We've upped our game over the past couple years, gobbling up all the knowledge we could on what can be done with wood and composites. This deck is a culmination of that knowledge, with every curve designed to provide even flex, strength, form, and function. Gentle center camber, rocker in the foot platform, flares by the cutouts, radial tail, and multiple concaves make this the strongest and most functional flexy freeride, freestyle, and commuter deck out there. If you like flexy boards this could be the best board you'll ever step foot on. We carefully engineered the mold to generate flex while pushing and stiffen the board up while locked into the foot pockets. This means the board will have a relatively consistent flex for a wide range of rider weights but can bottom out during big tricks. If you've ridden our 7ply Maestro, you'll feel that the flex during push is similar but notice that the board feels much stiffer after your feet move into both foot pockets. We designed the board with multiple wheelbase options so that you can increase or decrease flex slightly based on your preference. If you're on the heavier side and not sure if this board is right for you, hit us up at email@example.com and we'll steer you right.
