GriptaPe Technology

How Is ZINE Griptape Different?

The griptape by Zine differs significantly from conventional skateboard griptape or other duct tapes with rough surfaces: 

If the griptape on top of your shifter is to high, it feels unpleasant during your shifting actions. Therfore we reduce the height as much as possible up to 30% thinner compared to standard skateborad griptape.

The honeycomb design allows an individual adjustment of the grip level system of your shift levers.

The Zine Griptape is without sharp particles used for conventional skateboard griptape (No sharp-edged particles from silicon carbide or alumina particles)


Thanks to different grip levels with a high or medium friction factor, you can personalize your ride for all conditions.

The laser cuts the edges of the griptape reliably, which means that exact shapes for all common levers can be produced on the market.

A flexible foil carrier is used which is particularly well attached to the surface. In combination with an industrial adhesive, the griptape is reliable and can still be removed residue-free.
