SKATE GRIPTAPE – All you need to know to choose the best griptape for your skate.

Without the griptape, the deck would slip, so it is absolutely necessary. It is important to choose a good one because you will notice the difference to get to do different tricks with your skate. 

Here you can find the answers to the most frequent questions about skate grip. 

Luckily, the grip for skate is one of the cheapest parts of your skate and for a very low price you can buy a good quality griptape to use your skateboard without any problem. 

Which grip should I use for skating?

All the griptapes for sale in our online shop are perfect for your skateboard, and they fulfill these characteristics: 

- Perfect granulation for optimal grip without breaking or damaging your skate shoes. 

- Extra strong adhesive side to make sure that once stuck, it will not move from its place. 

- No-bubble system, very improved in the last few years. Some of us (who are old enough) still remember the damn air bubbles. The new materials allow air to scape, so we don’t need to be so careful anymore when sticking the griptape, as the micro-perforations will save us from that disaster. 

At this point, surely you already know that all our griptapes are good enough, so you can relax and just choose the design you like the most. 

Black griptape is, and has always been the most popular, but there is a lot of color options to choose among to decorate your deck. 

You can find grips of all colors: white, red, yellow, green, purple, pink, blue... Color checkered, tie dye, with drawings, logos, flower patterns, camo print, skulls, the one with the bear from Grizzly Griptape, that has the bear cut so you can leave the hole so see the upper face of your deck. Also, there are fluorescent griptapes from Nomad Skateboards that are great because they make us feel safer when skating at night. 2018 Nomad Griptape Series: Glow In The Dark. 

Transparent Griptape for Skate

This kind of griptape is becoming very popular, because as it has a transparent material, you can have all the grip but still see all the designs and colors on the top of your deck. There are many decks that have very cool logos, drawings or colors on top, and it is a pity to fully cover them with a regular griptape. Transparent griptapes have the same quality than the rest. 

You can find transparent griptapes from many brands, and increasingly. They are completely transparent, or with small drawings that looks great, without covering the deck. These grips are also used when you want to customize the top of your deck with your own painting.

How to clean skate griptape?

The griptape is a part of the skateboard that gets dirty a lot, and it could lose grip and look awful. The good news are that it is very simple to take care of it, you are just going to need liquid soap, a brush, and to follow these steps: 

  1. Place your skateboard on a flat surface where it won’t move. 
  2. Put some soap, like the one you use to wash dishes, on the grip. 
  3. Brush the soap all over the griptape, until it is lightly covered in foam. 
  4. Dry the soap with a clean cloth or some paper. Don’t rub, just place the cloth on the soap to dry it. And it’s ready! Your grip should be as clean as when it was new. 

There are more professional products for a more delicate care of the griptape, and of course you can buy them in Fillow. 

Our skate shop offers those products to clean your griptape and pamper it as it deserves: Griptape Cleaner. 

How to replace a skate griptape?

The grip gets worn over time, although if we take care of it and clean it often, it can last much longer. However, there comes a time that either because it is damaged or we are tired of it and we want to put a cool new design, we should replace it. 

Don’t panic, it is not as complicated as it could seems. The first thing to be done is to remove the old griptape from the skateboard. 

We are going to need a skate tool, a cutter and a normal hair dryer. 

  1. Remove the trucks, using the skate tool. 
  2. Heat the grip with the hair dryer.
  3. Tear up an edge of the grip, big enough to place your fingers under it and begin to pull. 
  4. Pull slow and carefully, as you continue heating the grip, but not too much because you could break it.
  5. Once you have removed it completely, keep a piece of it, it can be useful to polish the new one. 
  6. Apply the grip tape:  To stick your new griptape, you can read how to do it on our Guide: Assembling a Skateboard. It is very easy.

You can find them with various designs, like the basic black grip, that is the cheapest, but better than others that have the same price, and there also other models with their logo or small designs.
