SYS stands for "Save-Your-Shoe".
Standard griptape provides friction through grains of quartz sand. Quartz sand is normally a hard, sharp-edged and pointy material. When such material meets one which is considerably softer, it provides a high degree friction.
Sys don’t use grains of quartz sand, but synthetic fiber. This fiber is cut into tiny blocks applied vertically to the griptape. The single fibers are not much bigger than a grain of sand, but a lot thinner. The vertically applied fibers cause the same friction like quartz sand.
Unlike quartz sand Sys fibers are considerably softer and that means that the fibers don’t rip up your shoes!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS PRODUCT SELLS BY INCHES.
