R1 history

We've always been different. In 2001 we debuted our "NYC Push Boards" designed for commuting across the city faster and more efficiently. Throughout the years since we've ridden and modified almost every truck and component combination to come on the market.

The new R1 design blends everything we've learned and everything we love into one super fun, super carvy and PUSH-centric truck.

17 strong

Why 177mm?  We did a variety of tests on our boards and others and found that in most cases 180mm was wider than needed with the majority of wheels.  We determined that 177mm was the optimal width to avoid wheelbite on most setups.

For those of us with deep roots in the NYC push culture, a 3mm difference in our setup width can create a huge efficiency in how we push by tucking the wheels in and giving more flightpath to your push foot.  


The R1 trucks work with most of our boards using 70mm wheels or smaller. Because of the 51° baseplate you can run larger wheels depending on their design and your bushing tightness.

As a reference these will fit 99% of the setups as 50° Paris, Bear or Gullwing trucks.

Bottom line

There are tons of trucks on the market designed by and for riders of a various disciplines and skill levels. For the R1 we focused on developing a fun, surfy freeride truck that optimizes hanger width to give a slight advantage to us pushers. The R1 is also great for dancers looking for silky, high-rebound setup. The R1 is not designed for downhill skateboarding over 45mph (unless you're Will Royce). 

In conclusion, the R1 is a super fun truck that carves like a snowboard and pushes like a mob. It is compatible with a variety of boards and rider disciplines and comes in six colors to fit your flavor. Let us know how you like em!

What can I say? I was finding it extremely difficult learning how to slide on my Bustin Sportster with Gen 6 Bear 180's and P&P snakes. I replaced them with a pair of R1's and then the pre-carve kick out to heel-side check slide appeared out of nowhere! It was almost scary. I am left stupefied, but smiling every time I break out the Sportster now. Bless you!

Love for the 2nd pair of these rad trucks!

This is the 2nd pair of Bustin R1’s that I have bought… Bustinboards makes the best skateboards and components, even some awesome clothing. I have been a very satisfied customer since 2017. Their skateboards are made in the USA and crafted by some of the best skaters I’ve ever seen.

Love the Maestro

Ride the Maestro on a six mile loop every day, stiff enough for my 195# , and carves nice and easy on the R1 trucks. Highest speed on the loop is only about 20MPH, handles every carve I need to make. The 70mm wheels roll through everything. Glad I got it.
