SHRIKE // 39
NEW SHRIKE VIDEO
Created as the ultimate quiver-killer, the Shrike is a true jack of all skate trades. It began as a double-kick downhill board but has been adopted by pushers, dancers and freestylers alike. This year we’ve added some lip to the tails to make the freestyle world even free’er.
ISAMU ON SHRIKE
Introducing the new T-Core lineup, our most durable and most comfortable board construction in our 20 year history. The new construction features a blend of three wood species to create just the right performance where it matters. (read more below)
T-Core Construction Details
A dampening Canadian Maple core pre-laminated with our proprietary epoxy glue gives a classic skateboard feel and extra long lasting pop and flex retention. Flanking the maple core are two layers of vertically laminated 3mm bamboo which provide a lively pop and outer stiffness. Beyond that are two full-length pretensioned fiberglass inserts running tail to tail. These inserts minimize torsional flex for a better riding experience and keep the board strong and straight throughout its life.
Last but not least, we’ve added our brand new MicroTeak™ Skin to the top and bottom of the board to provide unprecedented hardness, durability and moisture resistance. The new technology features a thin layer of ultra-hard teak wood heat-melded with thousands of strands of extruded glass fibers and our signature (E)Core™ epoxy resin.The result is simply the best construction we’ve ever created here at the Bustin Labs. The bamboo/maple/fiberglass core retains the board’s day-one feeling for years of riding and the new MicroTeak™ skin provides a new level of armor to protect your board as you slay your own concrete jungle.”
