Gorilla Supply Co First Ever Palm Pad

What are Gorilla Palms?

Gorilla Palms are asphalt assaulting, concrete crushing, palm-saving, form fitted, foam padded, urethane coated palm-pads inspired by skate shoes and constructed with suede and polyurethane.

The low profile design differs from bracing wrist guards which allows for its natural range of motion by not locking the wrist but instead elevating the palm and absorbing shock. The surface allows the pad to slide on the ground helping to prevent twisting, while still gripping naturally so your hands don’t go flailing when you do catch yourself. We hold quality to the highest standard.

Legal Statement

We can’t promise you that Gorilla Palms will save your hands, or bones, or protect anything. You can make your own decisions, but we think that wearing something is better than nothing at all. We can’t be held liable for the infinite ways you can hurt yourself skateboarding, we are just trying to make skateboarding more fun and accessible for everyone.

We don’t skate barefoot because we want to do it every day. Same principles apply to our hands. It’s fair to say that skaters slam a lot, it happens, and that’s all good, we are really good at it. We do think however, that you might be able to grapple your way out of a sketchy situation a little smoother if you had a little padding to work with.

Light & Breathable

Each palm pad weighs less than 2 ounces. They are almost unnoticeably comfortable, and fit snug. The low-cut, fingerless, design allows for airflow to keep hands cool.

Full Range of Motion

Unlike traditional wrist guards and braces Gorilla Palms allow for a full range of motion for the hands and wrists. Don’t let wrist guards get in the way of your hands when you need them.

Durable Materials

Polyurethane is what skateboard wheels are made of, and so are Gorilla Palms. Inside the palm pads are a pocket of shock absorbing foam, creating a soft cushion that endures like the sole of a shoe.

Quality in the Details

Inspired by skate shoes and made with suede, medical nylon, and heavy thread, Gorilla Palms are the anti-gloves; low profile form fitted palm pads.
