Gripples are great for extra traction on your footpads AND help solve sensor engagement issues! But that's not all folks! The Gripples are also an excellent shock absorber and rail protection!

Peel, stick, and then LET IT RIP!! WITH GRIPPLES!!!!
Look, maybe these are great for adding grip to stock footpads. They don't fit my Platysense pads, but that's okay, I bought them to protect my WTF Low Rider rails. They technically fit fine and stick well, but they ruin the sleak WTF look with jarring lines and reddish violet hues, unlike the blueish "retro purple" in the pictures. I have matte rainbow rails so you'd think they would match any solid color. Nope. Spiky magenta accents match nothing. I took them off and replaced them with transparent bumpers made for doorknobs, from Walmart. Huge upgrade! If you insist on buying these, please get clear so they're less visible to innocent passersby.
P.S. I love FL and have spent thousands here, but this is an honest review.
I love them. Previously, whenever I was carving back and forth a lot (aggressively), after awhile my feet were always "somewhere else". My feet would walk all over the foot pads. Now, they don't. Gripples grip and they just don't stop. This is especially true if you ride with a more or less "flat" sole on your shoes. Anyway, get some. You won't regret it.
I was beginning to become frustrated with my Onewheel and the mount-of-shame. I wasn't confident getting on and off of my board at stoplights, so it just wasn't fun anymore. Finally, I slapped these on and they instantly fixed everything. I feel so much more stable, secure, and confident in my startup. I just got back from my first ride where I wanted to ride until it had no battery left. I highly recommend this product.
These things have renewed my old grip tape and work really well. It takes couple rides to get your feet used to them but after that they are the best grip you can buy. They have stopped the footpad sensor problem too so I don't have to worry about the sensor disengaging at high speeds anymore. Very happy with these.
Stoked you're digging your Gripples Kyle! Thanks for your support and let us know your Gripple placements! It's always cool to see everyone's Gripple placement preferences.
After doing some research, Gripples appeared to be the best first step to address my sons startup problems with his new GT. We tried these out and the problem was instantly solved. Since it comes with 2 pair, we each put them on our front footpad. I have been quite pleased for myself with how much it reduces foot numbing. I am probably going to pick up another pack soon so I can also have them on the back footpads as well.
