As a grip tape manufacturer, we know that each person has their own preference, so they may all want something different. Most of the skateboard grip tape we manufacture is the black standard grade, this material is reliable and hard wearing, thanks to our no budget attitude when it comes to making our tapes, we use thick grit levels with a high quality adhesive, because of the many requirements different people have, we offer varieties of grip tape to solve your skateboard dilemma.
Conventional Skateboard Grip-Tape
Our product has a fine 80 grit finish to ensure great control whilst on the board. A wide range of colors are available.
We also manufacture 60 grit tape for people who want enhanced grip.
Years of research as grip tape manufacturers have gone into making a product which meets all the demands that a top quality skateboard grip tape possesses.
This material can be applied with ease. For application tips, take a look at our "Skateboard Grip Tape Application" video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0yTXW88XGs
Heskins produces a material which was widely demanded by our customers, Heskins aerated grip-tape. We create our aerated grip-tape by using a rotary tool to insert small micro-pores in the material, these press through to the backing liner, this leaves the consumer certain that no air bubbles will lift his newly bought skateboard grip-tape will last the course of time, because when a air bubble forms all the user has to do is stand on the board, this will displace the air through the small pores, leaving a flat and high gripped surface. We think that aerated grip-tape is best suited for those who do not have much experience in applying grip-tape to a board.
Aerated silicon carbide grip tape can now be slit 3/4" upto 46", down to 1/2" for special requirements.
Heat Resistant Grip-Tape for Longboards
Heskins realises that longboards need a different kind of care, and are placed into a special area in the skateboarding world, as the longboard rider has completely different needs to a skateboard rider. A longboarder spends much more time on the board then a skateboarder, during this time their feet will be making small and precise adjustments to improve the ride of the board, during these movements a lot of friction is generated, this creates heat, a heat so bad that it will melt through conventional plastics, and now Heskins LLC have found the solution. Our longboard grip tape has been made completely heat resistant, we use a deeper grip coating, likened to our X-Coarse material, to prevent the slipping and sliding of feet and allow it to withstand high temperatures.
