Jessup Manufacturing, the Official Griptape Sponsor of USA Skateboarding (USAS), is excited to celebrate the one year anniversary of ULTRAGRIP skateboarding grip tape with newly launched original designs from Pro Skater Silas Baxter-Neal. The Jessup Manufacturing engineering team originally collaborated with Jessup Pro team riders PJ Ladd and Jeff Grosso to create this performance grip tape which was launched in July 2019. One year later, the ULTRAGRIP line has proved to be a favorite for today’s professional and recreational skateboarders alike.
Outfitting skaters with griptape since 1975, Jessup Manufacturing is not new to the business. Jessup The Original® griptape is a widely popular griptape for skateboarders. However, ULTRAGRIP uses a specific manufacturing process that makes an aggressive grit, allowing for extra traction. The additional traction enables skaters to perform a variety of tricks safely. The ULTRAGRIP line offers skaters an additional option when it comes to outfitting their board depending on their skating preference.
Specific product attributes of the Jessup ULTRAGRIP skateboarding grip tape include:
- Increased granular construction to prevent feet from slipping, but provided quality board feel
- Easy application, trims without tearing, extreme durability
- Utilizes Silicon carbide particles to grip the shoe to the board more than any other grip tape.
Jessup Manufacturing is excited to outfit skateboarders with ULTRAGRIP skateboarding grip tape designed by Pro Skater Silas Baxter-Neil to mark their one year anniversary of the product line. His original design, Forrest, can be found at jessupmfg.com. This Jessup® Griptape Signature Series design is printed on pure black ULTRAGRIP and is one of a four part collection called Elements. ULTRAGRIP is currently one of five grip tape options for skateboarders in The Jessup Griptape Family.
