Traction Family

Traction Family Story

When we started making our first prototypes back in 2011, our team was just Scott Stevens and Jesse Burtner...

We were all spending summers up at Mt. Hood, and Jesse and Scott would raid the HCSC demo shop to stockpile those cheapo stomp-pads that used to come free with pairs of bindings. Those two were on some next level traction needs, cutting the pads into dozens of little pieces, and literally covering their boards in them. We wanted to create a better, more consistent solution, and from their ghetto R&D our original Mini Claws were born. We tested a bunch of different foams, rubbers, adhesives, etc. until we had our perfect blend, took a chance, and had some made. We had a two-man team, no shop orders, no online store, and no plan.

From there, a bunch of riders started using our stuff, and our team naturally grew.

Over the years the team has evolved into one big, happy traction family, and we are incredibly grateful to all of the amazing riders that run our foam:
