Ill start off by saying I dont think stomp pads are necessary. You can put your back foot against your binding and its just as easy to get off the lift. With that out of the way, I received one of these stomp pads free from a friend as they had extras so I decided to put it on one of my old boards. First thing I noticed was this stomp pad is huge. It is nearly the same width as my bindings are. Second thing was how big the spikes are on it...these things are like an inch high each. Regardless of how much snow is on my board they are still very noticeable when you stand on it. This makes getting off the lift as easy as if your back foot was strapped in. If you absolutely feel the need to get a stomp pad, purchase this one as you will not be disappointed
I used this stomp pad on my last board. This stomp pad was the best one that I have ever used. It provided so much grip that I could have rode the whole day without strapping in. I'm going to get a new one for my new board. Such a great buy.
I use these on all my boards. With a lil mod (splicing strips and spreading them out) they provide great grip and control. Can board down the entire run without strapping back foot and using this stomp.
This stomp pad is great because you can cut it apart and arrange the spikes however you want. This is helpful when applied to channel boards. The spike design really provides great traction and grip. The only thing negative thing to bring up is they may not stay on the board for all too long if not applied correctly.
best stomp pad on the market! If U feel it is too big U can cut it to the size U want. So much grip U could ride boneless (one footed) with no worries. If U have issues w/ getting off lifts this will solve your problem
i got two of these and will be getting one more. i havent too many stomp pads before (maybe 5 total), but this is by far the best one. you couldnt fall off this guy if you tried. the spikes really dig into ur boot
the only comment is to watch out for air bubbles when ure putting it on. because it covers such a large surface area, make sure you start pressing down from the center and work your way out. if u get air bubbles stuck it in the middle its going to suck trying to ease them outwar
If you want a stomp pad that really works and won't fall off on the hill then look no further. The Dakine Spike Pad has some serious spikes to scrape the snow off your boot and provide some real traction. My favorite thing about this pad is that you can cut it into strips and place them where you want. If you're worried about covering the board graphics just get the clear color and you won't even notice it.
The sharp cones are very good for keeping traction even if the board or your boots accumulate some snow of them. When storing the board or generally showing it off, the design adds a nice 'bad-ass' feel to it.
I will say that one time, however, I bent over to fit my boot straps & slipped, landing my knee on the stomp pad. The thing bled so much I could see it through my snowpants. So yeah, note: very sharp :P
this has great adhesive and has never really fallen off or began to peel at all over the season that i have been using it. it withstands the heat of the trunk of my car and the abuse on the mountain.
some say it is ugly but i dont think it really detracts that much from the board design. with the semi-clear color it blends in at first glance. the big spikes really aid in boot grip while skating along... especially when your boot is packed with sno
