It takes a lot for us to want to use anything other than Jessup, but Four.D are coming out strong with a brand new griptape here in the UK. This griptape is perfect for street, vert, and freestyle use; it doesn’t wear out as fast as other griptapes, anchors your feet to the board when you need grip but breaks free when you need that perfect flick, and has a finer grit than many griptapes, so doesn’t shred your shoes – or your thumbs – as much.
Not only that, but the glue is far stronger than some American brands, meaning the grip doesn’t lift from the board or tear as much as some of their more popular rivals.
What else can we say? We’re big fans of Four.D – and judging by the amount of boards we’re seeing with Four.D’s characteristic sparkle, it looks like other skaters are, too.
