Bustin Limited Edition Sportster Austin Red Longboard
Wheelbase: 29 1/2"
Plies: 9-ply Canadian Maple
Meet our new turbo charged, 400 horse power, swiss army knife longboard designed to be an all-in-one freeride, downhill and long-distance skating machine packed neatly into a lean and mean 36" frame. Right off the bat, note that this is a no-kick design so if your still wanting the freestyle element in a larger board we suggest flipping the page to the Boombox or Maestro decks. However, if your a no-kick, no-frills longboarder looking for a deck that will bomb a big hill, effortlessly slide at high or low speeds, push fast across campus and then tuck neatly under your desk to cool down, then the Sportster is your new whip. The drop-through design combined with our new RDR mold (radial micro-drops and rocker throughout the standing platform) give this deck a low down, 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.
Part of what makes this longboard so special is the commutability and we really wanted to highlight that aspect of it. In addition to the lowered platform, we shaved out 1/2" notches in the middle to add just an ever so slight flex into the mix to soften the ride and provide a little more liveliness as an every day commuter. Flex will be noticed when standing in the center of the deck while pushing, but when locked in on the standing platform, the deck is solid and stable. Once in freeride position, riders will notice a comfortable but powerful concave combined with rocker and radial drops that lock feet in like bindings on a snowboard. All of this combined makes initiating slides effortless, and you can be assured that your feet will stay in place as long as you're going sideways.
