Bustin longboards: beasts on the road
The longboarding as a sport has become really popular in the last 10 years. Therefore, many new companies have appeared on the market. Bustin longboards is one of those companies. I accidentally ran into Bustin board at my friends’ place, and I was pleasantly surprised with what this label has to offer to the riders.
The board I would like to review is a cruiser style longboard Bustin Boards Strike. It has a low profile and drop-through trucks. This board is a multi-functional machine. Personally, I liked it, and I believe there are many reasons that you may want one too.
First of all, the board is made of 8 ply Canadian maple. Several customizable designs are available from the Bustin longboards. You can choose colors, graphics, and you can even color the Bustin boards logo. In addition to the graphics, the manufacturer will offer you to choose different trucks and wheels depending on your taste and style of riding. The price will adjust accordingly to the parts you choose to make a complete, but the cheapest board will cost you around 220$. That is a bit expensive, but you know what you pay for.
When I got on the board I felt immediately that this is gonna be fun – the speed, turnability and sturdiness, everything is perfect. I really liked the Strike. It is versatile, low, and turns fast. The best part is the Strike’s turns. The Strike board offers a bit aggressive downhill riding experience, I really enjoyed it. I don’t think I have been able to cut sharper on other board.
Personally, I used the Strike for cruising; however some riders say it is a great board for racing. Anyhow, Bustin makes cool boards! Check them out!
