What happens to worn out shoes and car tires at the end of their lifecycle? In most cases, they become landfill, never really breaking down, destinated to sit in a pile on this earth for millenia. In this case... they become a more environmentally sustainable approach to griptape and EVA foam. Featured as replacement to virgin materials, and prominently on kids boards to get them thinking about what happens to things when we're done using the mearly on.
Tensor Alloy Standard Trucks
Standard trucks typically used on models less than 34" long. These trucks are guaranteed for life.
Globe's high-rebound urethane formulas are abrasion resistant, smoother, faster, and provide excellent grip. Standard on every complete, Globe Abec-7 bearings spin faster and longer which means less effort and faster.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium skateboards, we use a significant amount of wood in our production. In order to off-set the timber we use to construct our skateboards, our goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than we consume.
To that effect, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees we harvest annually in making our skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organisation that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
