So, they are trying to make a "conceptual" griptape brand? One of the most pretentious things ever. Griptape is fucking griptape man...

What could possibly be different about this brand? No need for another grip, unless itís Deluxe getting into the game.

What even is anyone basing their criticisms of this on? I went to their insta and there aren't even any real posts yet, I went to the link in their bio and it just took me to one of those "this domain name is available" type pages. I agree it seems pointless to launch a new grip brand but with a team like that I'm at least curious.

Also couldn't this easily be a complete prank? like couldn't you feasibly start an instagram for a "brand" just tag a bunch of pros in the bio and let people speculate?

Not a prank, unless they also hacked Ishod's personal website and added the brand to his sponsors.

Because much like bearings, decks, wheels and hardware, if you get the right people to promote your product you can sell a bunch of it even if its exactly the same as your competitors and comes from the same factory.

How many times have you heard someone at the park swear their Antihero board is the best wood but their friends deathwish sucked or something to that effect?

He has a personal site that doubles as a store front? WTF is going on.

All the profits go to a foundation, I think one that helps suicide prevention/awareness if I recall but I think he was maybe going to pick a different cause with each drops.

Does it have the thick adhesive and white backing paper that most of the small grip brands use?

Emergency blade ain't a bad idea.

Had a look on their website, $80 for a hoodie! Gotta be taking the piss.

Definitely gonna try a sheet if my local gets it or reviews are good  enough to warrant me ordering some.

Iím curious about how the grip feels, maintains grittiness,durability and cuts compared to jessup and mob.

Whoís behind miles and where itís distributed through?

Are they all riders from mob and they all got on miles?

Why is the trademark on every logo?

What are horse shoes? Are their horse socks?

Thatís definitely what this is, and itís no different than what NHS did when they created Bronson Bearings (which I donít recall anyone turning up their nose at). The big companies are moving to have an in-house brand for every skateboard component, so they can better control distribution and enjoy higher margins. Not really more to it than that.

Brown recycled backing paper, micro holes like MOB, but from the photos, the grip itself does look more like Jessup, it has a similar gloss/shine that Mob doesn't have.

From my sheet, I dont see any micro holes like Mob. I have a sheet of Mob that I compare it to, it's definitely less gritty than Mob & the Miles sheet on its own is very flimsy, it doesn't have that stiff/thickness that Mob does.
