Hey guys,it has been a while!
I will get right to it. Our boards are able to do pretty crazy stuff already. So naturally the rest has to adapt such as the rider, safety gear etc.
I was mostly riding with gloves since I feel naked without them. I never found an optimal way to hold the remote while still being able to use the pucks for slides or for cornering.
So here is the way I would like to solve it:
I got to know “BamBam Skate” better, a producer of gloves, pucks, grip/break soles etc. Skating with them and sharing the fun. Since everyone is using their gloves for quality and price I started asking if a special ESK8 - glove would be possible and immiately got a yes!
Here are some of their gloves :
So lets talk design, material, puck placement, shape and any other ideas you have.
Some initial thoughts of mine:
- Banana shaped puck below the remote, with puck rises so it sits above the remote height wise.
- Not sure if leder or fabric. Leather would offer more safety but a little less feel for the trigger
- Not sure if full gloves or fingers cut for the trigger feel.
The best Idea will be produced and biggest contributions get a free glove!
Full leather glove with fabric fingers is possible!
grip print structure underneath for a better hold would also be possible.
