Cork cells display what is known as elastic memory—when compressed, they return to their original size—great for stomp pads, and ours have been tested by the best.
Most deck pads are made out of non environmentally friendly EVA plastic (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate).
We first tested recycled EVA pads, but they didn't hold up well. They were a bit soft and didn't quite offer the right consistency.
After trying several different alternatives, we came across CORK.
After making and testing a cork + EVA composite, we were very pleased with the results, and you will be too.
Other companies were impressed too, and so they copied us, we are flattered. Support the company that was first!
But what is also important is that these pads work. Right?
One thing we really like is that the edges are soft, but not too weak. So your knees don't get all ripped up in warm water. However, the pad is hard enough to make your turns and airs the best they can be.
The other cool thing is that cork repels water. Why is this important?
Cause excess water stays off your pad, and thus your tail stays lighter, offering more performance ease and speed for your sick turns.
Look, we know you like rainbow colors and pictures of gorillas on your pad, but dude, did you know that companies have to use KARLY inks and dyes to make those colors?
Colors really mean more toxicity in the environment.
You can get creative and draw something nice on the pad yourself.
