This grip only lasted me about 3-4 weeks. I was pretty disappointed actually. For my first few sessions it made me feel locked in and whatnot, i got it wet and a little dirty and ever sinc then i started to slip. it still feels quite grippy on my hands, but when im digging my feet into the board it slips. when im doing toesides i feel like i have to monkey toe and i hate to monkey toe and when im doing heelsides i have to put most of my foot off of the board. i just think im going to stick to jessup from now on. its cheap and it lasts just as long.
Jesus of griptape
This grip tape is amazing if u do free ride/downhill or just straight down hill. The only down side is it eats your shoes but who cares. Get this griptape
Great grip perfect for downhill and freeride. Only complaint is that with the custom lengths the roll came with creases that no matter how hard I tried would not come out. Was able to reduce them to be not so noticeable hopefully it will just be a cosmetic issue and not affect the performance
Somehow I cut my chin putting this on. It's so grippy
I got this grip knowing it would be grippy because of all the reviews saying they cut there fingers applying it. I have extremely rough hands from working with wood and often hit my hands on running belt sanders, so I didn't expect this to cut my hands. I was wrong. My hands are a bit tore up. This shit is grippy as can be. Worth every penny all day long.
This shit will make u think that ur board is one of ur limbs! but the grip tape gets dirty easily sooo.... i got grip gum and yes it works. great for down hill.
Unprecedented grip and pockets
This grip tape is very vicious, so vicious in fact that rubbing some against someones arm as a joke causes them to bleed. You will not fall off with this stuff, seriously! Buy 60 inches to make some sweet pockets for locking in on your heelsides. Even better if you have a top mount with concave!
sucks more dick than your mom
WORST GRIPTAPE EVER. you never feel safe on your board when you got this stuff on. Go with RDVX instead
sucks more cock than your mom
it sucks there is no grip at all, your feet slides around on the griptape and you never feel safe while going fast. plus it brakes really fast. WORST GRIPTAPE EVER. go with RDVX instead
I hvae used both red and black. Me personally I prefer the red. If you are not rich or want to dish out money every month for new shoes I recommend that you do not get the black viscous. This is because the griptape is so good that it eats away your shoes because black has the sharpest points. I would say red is the best due to the fact that it grips you to the board about as well except it doesn't eat away your shoes nearly as quickly. So DO NOT BUY THE BLACK buy the clear or red.
This stuff is coarse. And sharp. And black. And sticky as hell.
It feels sharp and unpleasant in you hands but under your feet it is just gripping onto the soles of your shoes and holds then there whilst you do massive heel sides
Get it u effing slut
THIS IS A FIVE STAR PRODUCT
I only made this one star so you guys will read it.
I bought this tape and I LOVE it. It is just amazing and really locks you in. It is amazing.
So this is what I really wanted to tell you guys:
When the tape is shipped in the mail it will be rolled up and have MANY creases. They are a huge pain to get out unless you do what I am telling you. While applying the tape try to stretch the tape tight to minimize creases. But a few will remain and that is not a problem. When you finish leave the board and tape out in the sun or under a lamp and it will get hot… this is normal too the tape will always be hot since it is black. So after it is hot, just ride the board. Step on all the creases or just rub them out with your hand, they should come right out. Good luck, This tape is AMAZING!
The blood orange is good but vicious is one of the only that can grip to itself so you can make your own foot pockets.
Good, but has its downfall
If you like to freeride like me this is an amazing grip tape and I love how to grabs my feet during the slide. However if you like downhill, you might want to go with something less corse. When you downhill sometimes you need to move your feet around on you board, to go from tuck to pre-drift. Well because this is so grippy, sometimes you have to pick you foot up and set it back down, and as most of you would know that can get really sketchy. Over all if you are throwing big standies this is great but if you are looking for a downhill grip job go for something less corse like blood orange.
restock for the love of god!!!!
Yeah this tape is mad grippy and great for EVERYTHING! only bad thing is it kills shoes, also my roll had tons of creases that I couldn't push out... Must of had a bad roll anyway, AWESOME! grip would recommend.
Don't slide off when throwing some heelsides
Very amazed with the product
Great for downhill
best downhill slide grip
OFFICIAL TOILET PAPER OF CHUCK NORRIS
This stuff is like ground up sharks teeth on double sided duct tape. It grips but you can move your feet around. I made an interesting little foot pocket that I use for toesides and its really helping me improve. I wouldn't suggest using it for your entire deck, but rather your foot stance/pocket areas. It will cut your hands if you aren't careful. Buy 48 inches of it, because you may want to make pockets or share some with friends. You will improve much faster with this amount of grip, so buy some, slap it on, AND GET OFF THE INTERNET AND RIDE!!!
i have ridden black, clear, and red vicious and they are all awesome! the only grip that comes close is blood orange grip tape. i prefer blood orange because it comes in way more colors, and it is the same grit as vicious but it doesnt have sharp edges(which means less cuts on your hands and legs) and it keeps you locked in just about as well. another cool thing is that you pay $15 for 3 sheets of vicious, and you pay $16 for 4 sheets of blood orange, so you pay $1 for another whole sheet.
This Grip Is Angry!
Vicious... Amzing super grippy wears away very slowly. Buy this if you slide, downhill, or whatever your discipline is. THIS GRIP IS ANGRY BUY IT NOW!!!! there should be a six star rating for this grip.
I really like it I think it really locks in your feet and one time I went to push my foot couldent move it was so course Go VICIOUS!!!!!!!
The grip tape, makes you feel like the board is part of your body. I have been riding mine for about half a year and it has barely changed from its original condition, it held me on tight threw turns and coming in and out of turns. Downsides of the grip tape is that its very sharp and cuts you or your friends. Also rips your/ you girlfriends pants lululemon pants.
Amazing like boobs
Great stuff. It locks u in so well. I have it on my original freeride 41. It gives u confidence at higher speeds. It's also great for rain sk8ing
You just shouldn't do flip tricks like Ollie's and kick flips on it because it will ruin ur shoes from sliding up your feet.
this griptape is awesome!nice and grity..i reccomend using gloves wen your filing/cutting the griptape cuz it took a chunk of my knuckle trying to file it but no prob i still love it!!
I was doing some sliding today, and this griptape really locks in your feet like crazy! I started sliding and i don't know if it was the way i was leaning but my front foot completely slipped off and i got some roadrash. i don't know if it was from riding on the griptape for a long time wears it down. but i still enjoy riding with Vicious griptape. i prefer it for downhill longboarders or if you just want a really grippy griptape.
The best grip so far..
This grip is soo good for sliding and mostly everything else I would pick this over mob and day I have a land yachts switchblade 36 and it fits great in the pockets. I really recommend it!! Your feet will NOT slip out with this stuff!!!!
Great griptape keeps u locked on. Only bad part is we leaves get stuck to it lol )=
Everything you'd expect, BUT
It's everything you would expect from Vicious, BUT if you are a stickler for clean work like me, I would recommend ordering the sheets. Because it comes rolled up, it has creases in it when you try to lay it down, that are next to impossible to get out. Even after thinking I had them out, I have about 8 sweet creases on my brand new "Tiffany". Sadface.
They called it vicious for a reason
when I bought this stuff from the reviews Ive read, so I put this stuff on my sojourn, I was a real project trying to get this damn stuff applied it to my deck, it made it extremly grippy, so grippy, It made me fly right off my board a few times, It is real stuff man, it it extremely grippy, and the griptape looks so damn badass, even chuck norris would be afraid of this stuff,it has cut my fingers up a few times. This stuff will grip my maestro into the future
