NEW S%#*T

 FRESH FROM THE LONGBOARD LAB

We are busier than ever in the Bustin Labs, developing new things and improving old things constantly. Being in New York City, the mecca of design and innovation, we kind of get obsessed with research and development. So obsessed that we sometimes forget about our marketing and the importance of letting everyone know when new stuff drops. In response, we're launching the New S%#T page to make it easy for you to see our latest releases. As always, things move through our website and our NYC stores quick. If you see something you like, get down on it because it may not be available long. One Love from the Bustin NYC Crew!





2014 SPORTSTER FAMILY
ThermoCarbon And ThermoGlass Construction
Science! That’s basically the best way to sum-up our new manufacturing process on the ThermoGlass and ThermoCarbon lay-ups. What we’ve done is to eliminate the (often toxic) wood glue / epoxy bonding material, and replaced it with a recyclable composite materials before superheating the entire board. This causes the composite to melt and impregnate the wood sandwiched between. Stronger, Stiffer, Lighter, and Greener!
The addition of CarbonFiber in the Sportster PRO makes this board the stiffest in the Sportster line, lending it to high speed riding. But it’s still low enough to push with next to zero effort!

Sniper Series Five-Os
The Bustin Sniper Series Five-Os are square lipped with a wide contact patch, offered in 66mm, 70mm, and 75mm diameters. Not only will they provide you with the super smooth, consistent, and controlled slides that all Five-O's share, but the larger contact patch and square lips will grip harder around corners, while the greater amount of urethane in these wheels will provide more resistance, control, and longevity.

NOW AVAILABLE IN 66mm, 70mm, and 75mm diameters

BUSTIN BGDK YOFACE
It's designed for downhill riding and sliding, but the addition of a nose and tail make this board fun for any riding situation, whether you're slashing through the urban terrain or bombing down a mountain. The concave stays aggressive from front to back, topping out at .66" in depth, with a gentle elliptical W concave that gradually becomes more prominent toward the center of the deck for finding your position in your tuck.

Paris V2 180mm Blue/Blue
The Paris 180mm is the all-around and perfect any terrain truck. These are able to handle anything and everything you could possibly throw at them. The 180mm hanger is the perfect go-to size for most decks and compliments all riding styles. Like all Paris Trucks, the baseplate angle is 50 degrees, which provides the perfect balance between stability and maneuverability. These Paris V2 180mm Blue/Blue trucks are built with 90a Divine bushings.

FIVE-0 SERISE
Five-O wheels are made with a brand new formula urethane that provides for extremely consistent, smooth slides and leaves buttery rich thane lines with little effort. No Coloring, All Thane. Pure, honest, law enforcing thane means more grip through corners and smooth slides when sideways. Riders will lean on these a little more before they release, and when they do, it will be as good as it gets. We chose to use a small, proven core that maximizes thane depth with no risk of cracking or blowouts. These wheels are ready to be beat up.

NEW Bustin SPORTSTER 36"
ORDER NOW
Introducing the new Sportster deck, combining a high performance downhill and freeride deck with a low down, lean and mean, compact, city crushing commuter. The drop-thru design combined with our new RDR mold (1/2” radial micro-drops and 1/2” rocker) give this deck a low platform with a high response, super controlled ride unlike any other board to date. The ultra-mild dampening flex provided by the rockered shape and hip notches make this deck comfortable on smooth or rough terrain and the forked nose design allow it to pack a huge engine into a tight 36" frame while still maintaining a full 30" wheelbase. Perfect for anyone looking for a board that will bomb a big hill, effortlessly slide at high or low speeds, push fast across town and then tuck neatly under your desk when its time to cool down.

NEW Seismic Speed Vents and 3DM Avalon Wheels
Seismic Speed Vents
The 73mm diameter 76A gives it the roll speed of a larger wheel, while the weight-saving hub adds the quickness and agility of a smaller wheel, as well as enhanced rebound. Combined with lips designed for pure grip, the Speed Vent is utterly unique among high-end wheels. Breakthrough performance for longboarding, downhill, GS, and Hybrid slalom.

3DM 68mm Avalon Wheels
Great for all-purpose longboarding, cruising, and Old School styling, and one of the world's best all-around slalom wheels. Named after the legendary slalom racing site on Catalina Island, California, in the early and middle 2000s the Avalon won more elite races than all other brands combined.

Bustin SurfRodz CNC Indy 159mm Collabo
ORDER NOW
Behold, the 159mm INDeeSZ, Bustin Boards Edition. Surf-Rodz has been making top-quality billet aluminum trucks for years now, but it wasn't until late 2010 that the conventional-style INDeeSZ were born. These trucks were a new revolution in "precision" trucks, hitting a price-point that no other companies dare to compete with and offering more versatility and options than anyone in the market. The INDeeSZ were a hit with everyone who tried them. Originally offered with the standard 60mm x 10mm axles with two 5mm spacers on either side to space out all the way to 197mm, they provided the strong center of a conventional-style truck like an Independent or Bennett, but with a deeper and much more precise turn. Soon after, Surf-Rodz released a standard 8mm axle version of the truck, which did not offer the same versatility that the 10mm axle version had, but could fit all standard skateboard bearings and greatly simplified the setup with a fixed axle. These trucks have been much more popular with riders in the US

Bustin Boombox Limited Edition
ORDER NOW
Designed around freeride and freestyle riding, the Boombox is the perfect do-it-all board with enough stiffness to tackle mild downhill, enough give to comfortably drop off a 6-foot ledge, enough concave to spin in all directions without shifting your feet, and enough of a tail to pop a knee-high big spin.

Combined radial drops and rocker allow this deck to ride as low in the center as a flat drop-through deck, making it yet an exceptionally comfortable deck for commuting. This deck is limited only by the outermost walls of the imagination.

The Bustin 75a Swifts have landed!
ORDER NOW
Made from a radical formula called Sameawesomethane, the 75a Swifts will benefit those who want to cut more speed during their slides. If you're on a super gnarly hill and are using your slides to slow down and you need to grip around the next corner going switch, these are the type of wheels that will give you the confidence to make that hill your lady dog friend. Same 70mm diameter, same stone-ground finish, same predictable and durable urethane. We've had a really great time with the 78a and 82a Swift wheels, and we just want to keep that going, but with more grip and more push-back during slides that only a softer durometer can give you. Sweet and simple. The harder wheels will allow you to learn how to slide easier, shoving them out with less effort. The softer wheels will push back the most, cut the most speed, and grip harder in corners, and the 78a Swifts are that perfect happy middle ground.

Bustin EQ
ORDER NOW
The EQ is designed around 180mm trucks and 70mm wheels with no riser to maximize footspace over the given wheelbase, getting feet as close to the trucks as possible and providing excellent control. The center of the deck rides as low as a flat drop-through deck, making it comfortable for commuting, and with wheels splayed out at the ends of the deck, the board will easily roll behind riders as they walk back up the hill. Endless curves mean there are no weak spots. The EQ will take as much abuse as it will dish out. Learn more HERE
