Description

Non-Abrasive

DKL Griptape won’t rip your shoes because its material is similar to the rubber found on ping pong paddles. Tested and proved legit alternative to sandpaper. #morechoices

Grippiness

Instead of abrasion, we use concepts like molecular adhesion and the plow effect to achieve the same friction as sandpaper.

EXAMPLE: Similarly, a Gym VS Outdoor Basketball Court both provide the same grip, but only one will cut you up.

 

Savings

Skateboarding is expensive. Keep your shoes fresh and save money ($$$).

 

IMPORTANT TIPS

TIP #1: Applying DKL Griptape

  • 1. Cut with a razor not already dulled by sandpaper
  • 2. Trim the grip at a tapered angle
  • 3. Sand the edges down
  • *see also our “How To Apply” video

TIP #2: DKL Griptape works best if your shoes don’t already have giant holes in them since it’s designed to grip your shoe’s material.

TIP #3: For a good as new grip, simply wipe with a damp rag to clean.

    Have to say this grip was disappointing. Got it for my son who has been going through shoes like there is no tomorrow. First complaint is the grip did not adhere well to a brand new deck. Edges started lifting during first use. Second this tape does not grip. My son described it as better than nothing. Hopefully it will peal off clean and we can put some regular grip tape on his deck.

      Sorry about that! There’s a specific way to apply the grip to avoid these issues. We will be adding a how-to video to our website soon.

    I am not getting this grip tape again, at first it was good but then after a couple days of using it started to peeling up and it has been ever since. I watched the video’s And and I did exactly what it said. I am just getting normal grip tape from now on.

    Best grip ever! We’ve been using DKL from their site for about 2 years now. We have the file that they sell with it. However, something about the Braille logo DKL seems even better. I’m not sure if it’s psychological but it feels more grippy and stays down better than the one from the DKL site. Anywho, watch the videos for instructions to apply. Makes life easier. So happy my shoes last longer!

    Been skating Non-Abrasive griptape for over a year and works perfectly. For people talking about peeling, you just need to follow the instructions and trim it back 1/4″. Also it’s meant to work with shoes that have traction and not torn up yet. Had my shoes over a year now. Lastly, I like that you can clean it with a wet cloth really easily and its good as new. Hope this helps some people out. I haven’t gotten the braille logo one yet, but I might have to soon cuz it looks sick.

    I got this griptape to go with my second deck and sort of messed up the grip job, as it was my first time. Despite my poor grip job, this griptape has been pretty solid. I also had ordered new Fp shoes and the combo works well for grip! The only wear I’ve noticed on my shoes is that the glue has weakened and the midsole sticks out a little now. Otherwise, the shoes are like when I first got them. Since I did a poor job gripping my deck there is some peeling on the edges but if you cut it at an angle the peeling usually stops. Even the areas that have peeled back a little have not peeled much and the grip itself is quite functional. If your main goal is to save money on shoes and still have some pretty decent grip, then I’d recommend this!
