It’s been a long time coming, but the timing could not be more perfect. With the release of the 2013 Ratmobile, we are also proud to present Ronin Cast Trucks available for purchase with our decks. This could not be any more of a winning combination. Ronin has been dominating the downhill scene all over the world from Amateur riders winning outlaws to Douglas Dalua atop the awards stand as the IGSA World Cup Champion last year. The cast version of these trucks takes the same “support pin” technology incorporated in Ronins billet trucks, which holds the truck’s turning angle true through the entire turn, offering massive lean, enhanced grip, a rock solid center point, and more stability and control. Stoked on Ronins? You bet we are!
Ronin cast trucks were designed with more rake than their billet counterparts (cast and billet Ronins have interchangeable parts, by the way), which make them especially good for freeride and offering super lean which feels great for holding tuck through a turn, fast freeriding, and even getting your carve on. They turn as much as many 50-degree trucks, but offer more lean through the turn. They are 180mm and the axles are pressed in, producing a much straighter axle. When putting wheels on your Ronin trucks, assemble all four wheels and then do the final tightening once the wheels are on. This will assure that your axles stay 100% true and don’t pull one way or another. The price you pay for having pressed in axles, but it’s nice to know your trucks are straight! Also, check out riotboardsports.com for some sweet upgrades to your Ronin trucks like urethane pivot cups and support pin cups! Riot, Riptide, and Venom all make aftermarket bushings, and Riptide even offers different shape like Chubbies, Fat Cones, and Cones.
I’ll never forget the morning Bruno Sirera Sorondo skated into the Bustin Brooklyn shop, walked right up to the nearest computer, said something in Spanish then motioned for us to walk over and watch his videos. We get a lot of “watch my video” requests and I casually strolled over to check out his footy. I had just returned from Vancouver, BC and knew exactly what we were looking for to build a team in 2010. Bruno’s video was FIRE! Bruno was excited about Bustin Boards and wanted to be on the team. I asked him to show me some skating on Grand Street in front of the shop and he killed it, again. Needless to say, it isn’t everyday you come across a talented, creative skater like Bruno, Toti, Alberto and the whole PerroPro gang. We couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out!
The Bustin Brazilian Bullet Jonas Richter skates hard as a mother trucker in this video filmed in British Columbia. Jonas did some traveling in 2012 and will be a major threat in 2013. watch out! Bustin Longboards NYC.
On another note, Jonas did some extreme Bustin Team traveling with team mate William Royce this summer and will be traveling South America with Jonas for the South America DH tour this Fall. Will earned 1st qualifier position at Festival de la Bajada in Colombia this weekend! BUSTIN!
Bustin Will Royce is a talented dude. He rips the Skateboard, he shreds the Drift Trike and he is super fast on a Longboard. Oh yeah, Will also edits sick videos! Check out this latest video edit of Drift Trikes at the Maryhill Fall Freeride 2012. get it in.
The Mekanik is the little brother of the Ratmobile race deck. It is built off of the same progressive radial concave as the Ratmobile with the same quarter-inch rockered platform, but with an even wider range of wheelbase options, especially on the short end. The Mekanik will be the deck of choice for top mount riders who want to stick tight corners, freeriders who prefer shorter wheelbases, garage bombers, riders with smaller stances, and women downhillers.
What is the BUSTIN BOARDS RATMOBILE? Bustin Boards team riders Jacob Gellatly, Jonas Richter, Bruno Sirera, and Jorge Garcia took a road trip upstate New York to log some video footage of the elusive Bustin Ratmobile Topmount DH Skateboard in action. Riders are putting the latest top mount prototype, the Bustin Ratmobile, to the test in the final weeks before the deck was finalized. The board is now available for everyone to ride and enjoy! Check out Bustinboards.com, where you can create your own custom Ratmobile to be painted right in the Brooklyn shop. One love from Bustin Brooklyn!
NYC summer in the city – get creative! Bustin Team Riders Bruno & Noish enjoy an urban sprinkler somewhere in Brooklyn, NY on a hot summer day. If you skate in water, clean your bearings afterwards! One Love from Bustin Custom Longboards NYC. Filmed by PerroPro.
Big Conrats to Bustin Pro Will Royce on his WIN in the 4-Man Boarder-Cross event at Cathlamet DH Skate Corral in Washington State. Boarder-Cross is a Hybrid Downhill Skateboard Race with ramps and obstacles to maneuver around, similar to the Boarder-Cross Snowboard event in the X-Games. Will returned to Cathlamet with a 2nd place finish from 2011 after a crash on the last kicker ramp in the FINALS. Longboard Loft Pro Patrick Switzer squeezed by for the WIN. This season, Will showed up with a year’s experience skating with the best skathletes in the WORLD and was ready to WIN…so that’s just what he did. Big ups Will Royce, Bustin salutes you!
“OHEF Productions filmed some recent shreddage with Will Royce in some great Seattle Sunshine. Will did all this skating willingly with a sprained wrist, and still can ride any thing you put in his way.”
