Omen Longboards started with the Carbon Matrix, which was the collaboration between a bunch of local Seattle skaters including Nate Blackburn and Trevor Preston. Omen didn’t have a physical location at the time, so the Matrix was outsourced to a local company. Due to the relatively low price tag (compared to other carbon boards) Omen gained some notoriety pretty quickly. After a little under a year, Omen procured space in a north Seattle garage and started producing the first Pike prototypes.

NEW, LONGLASTING, WEATHERPROOF METAL GRIPTAPE

Silvagrip is a patent pending manufactured grip, fabricated with the most sophisticated technical alloys.  These alloys and metals  hold a matrix of sharp grit, permanently, to the surface. The grit is made up of the sharpest and hardest materials just under diamonds and include a matrix of  tungsten carbides, alumina oxides (corundum), chromium, cubic zirconia and ceramics.  The alloys can include aluminum, titanium, brass, bronze, nickel, copper and much more. Silvagrip is very ductile and capable of being shaped or bent, but at the same time gives you the strongest and hardest surface for grip.

Silvagrip’s manufacturing process allows us to vary the grip for street skaters, that may want less grip, to the toughest grip that longboarders demand. Special orders can include 24 grit on the rails, 36 in the middle or any combination requested.

What’s more important is wear of the surface and how long it last.  Silvagrip has a 10 year plus expectancy and could even be much longer. Silvagrip is a revolutionary new grip.  The surface is engineered for a longlasting, wear resistant grip.  No other grip can give you the traction Silvagrip can offer.  No other grip will last as long.  It hasn’t ever been invented until NOW!!
