Get me some of that grip, Theeve Trucks, Almost Impact deck, Omar Salazar Nikes, and have a set up from the future.

Anyway,how do you go about putting this shit on your board? Like is it sticky plastic with little grip squares? Grip has pretty much been the same since like,forever. Good luck revolutionizing that shit.

True that Skatenerd. It has been forever. lol I have them Salazars on in the pic. ha ha.

It comes in a sheet, just peel an stick. same old same old. the squares are joined by little pieces of clear. NOT that old crappy clear either. Our clear is 2 years in the making.

we appreciate your taking the time to reply.

It's full of holes. they create a Marco texture. so instead of dragging your sole over a flat surface with "grit" on it. You now have an abbreviated surface, with tons of edges and angles. The grit is very good, compared to what's out. Our pattern you can see here also creates tailored edges for flip tricks over the nose and tail. and with less material (12% less) it's much lighter than a full sheet.

 - And NO bail, we are not ripping off !?Paradox they have something else going for them. nanotechnology. keeps their stuff from shedding. Plus they are using a combination of 80 and 90 grit. to give more friction. good stuff.

Our traction system will retail at $13
Premiering three styles.

let me get this straight.

there's LESS area covered with grit, and that makes it somehow grippier?

and it costs extra?

i suppose having 12%lighter griptape is worth it.

awesome. sign me up.

for real, I'll take two!!

I understand advances have been made with skateboard technology, but I dare say it's pretty much perfect anymore.  If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Kind of steep. If I have to choose between free griptape from the shop or this...

Also, 'traction system'? You might want to keep it down to earth.

Spam and eggs. Good day Sue.

okay, traction system. I feel you. But at the end of the day, we think this is no longer "grip."

The pattern itself can help you to do many things. Nothing can make someone jump higher, besides good ole exercise. The interlaced portion of the cuts will, however, keep your board with your feet better, bringing the highest point of your ollie up quite a bit.
It tested especially well on switch.

Yeah it's just grip cut into little geometerical shapes, that's all.  Giving it a mystical name like "alchemy", isn't going to give it special powers.

yes It is grip Dimitri - with teeth.

And the mystical aspect is hard to describe, when you see the kind of performance it puts out. You'll understand a bit more about it's special powers.

Thanks for chiming in!
