Slide Gloves


      Slide gloves are a crucial yet often overlooked piece of kit for every skater for fun and for safety. Gloves are the best way to learn the art of sliding and sliding acts as your brake, making gloves the 2nd most important part of your kit - after your helmet. Being able to balance on your hand is the best you to learn about losing traction, without the risk of high-siding, or going splat when bail mid stand-up slide. Falling onto your gloves means no torn up palms as the extremely hard pucks will slide along the road– if you fall into a push-up position, the only parts of your body touching the road will be the pucks and your shoes.
