Best grip tape for esk8?

Hey again,

I was wondering what the best grip tape is for an esk8. I’m using a loaded vanguard flex 2 (42in long) and I have not been able to find not-boring long grip tape.

Any help is appreciated!

If you’re looking for the grippiest then definitely vicious

Its not necessarily the grippiness, I’ll do plain black but I feel I can do cooler

GLASS FRIT!

Glass frit, whoever said Vicious hasn’t ridden glass frit. I have vicious on a board and it’s not grippy at all compared to glass :rofl:

Yeah and best of all is, that the frit doesnt ruin them shoes like grip tape does. Believe it or not :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I like them glass pieces rough and big, so they are acting in some kind like spikes.
Thats a pretty big step forwards.

Way better. My Evo has vicious Black in it and that stuff really only grips strong for a month or two of riding and then it turns into regular griptape. The glass frit I have found is stickier/more grippy from the start and hasn’t worn down one bit. 200+ Miles so far so not a ton but by then my vicious had turned into regular grip.

Yeah, glass fritttttt will never wear out if applied correctly.
Thats another good point about it.

If you wish to keep your shoes and jeans in good condition, you should try DKL griptape.

It probably transforms into a slip n’ slide experience when it gets wet though :confused:

Yeah but not pebble sized glass frit :crazy_face:

Medium + fine combo done right = perfection :stuck_out_tongue:

My Vanguard is flat as a cutting board but I’ve not lost my footing once, so I’ll never choose another style if I don’t need to
