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 StatementWe 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.
