**This listing is for 1 foot pad ONLY! If you want a complete set be sure to add BOTH a front and back foot pad separately to the cart.**
Horizontal and Vertical Hex Patterns can ONLY be selected for Stock Foot Pads. All other foot pads are cut to the pattern seen in our product photos. Some foot pad profiles cause slivers of hexagons on the edges of the foot pad. We have matched these profiles with their ideal alignment, either horizontal or vertical. However, we offer both options for the *Stock Foot Pad* so you can match the orientation of your rear foot pad if wanted. For durability we recommend choosing the Vertical VS Horizontal for Stock Foot Pads.
Hexagon Foam Grip Tape is a game changer in performance and comfort! This unique blend of geometry, foam, and grip tape allow your feet to lock in like never before! The Hexagons flex and move with your feet giving you comfort and complete control of your board! No more changing out the whole grip tape! Just swap out those worn out areas that are prone to damage saving you time and money! All "FRONT Foot Pad" orders will recieve a protective layer to go in-between the sensor and Hexagon Grip Tape. This protective layer is black in color and has holes perforated through it for ease of installation. * The protective layer is not needed, but is does offer some protection and looks good to! Color options for the front and rear foot pads will be available as soon as we get done testing the adhesives on all the different foot pad materials!
Our Hexagons come in 2 different thicknesses, 2mm & 4mm. We recommend 2mm for the extreme rider. The lower profile of the 2mm makes it less prone to damages caused by the constant barrage of high speed tumbles on jagged rocks. The 4mm is for the rider that wants the ultimate couch feeling under their feet! Which ever size you choose you can be confident that they both perform well and are extremely durable & tough! These Hexagons use our Ignite 24 grit grip tape that is laminated to our specially formulated Shock Absorbing Gel Foam. This foam is dialed in!

Q&A from Customers:
Q. What causes a board to "Ghost"?(foot pad sensor engages with no rider on the board) A. Several things can cause ghosting. 1st Common problem is from over heating the Foot Pad sensor. This happens when removing the "Stock" grip tape. We recommend using very little heat. Just enough heat to get the surface area of the grip tape to 125F. For any left over adhesive residue we recommend using our "Adhesive Remover". The 2nd Common problem is caused when air is trapped in-between the grip tape and the sensor. This creates an air pocket that puts pressure on the sensor causing it to engaging. ALL Ignite Grip Tape & Foam Grip Tape is PERFORATED to insure no air pockets get trapped in between the sensor and grip tape.
Q. Will the foam tear, where out, or flatten if used by aggressive 200+LBS riders? A. Yes and no... this foam will show some signs of wear but will not tear apart. But it will start to flatten over prolonged use. We recommend our heavier riders to use our 2mm foam for prolonged life.
Q. Will the Images wear off that are printed on the Grip Tape? How do you recommend to clean the grip tape? A. We recommend using a brush. You can add water while brushing to get it looking NEW! When using water we recommend using our Epoxy Foot Pad Sensor Sealant / Plastic & Wood Repair Kit. To insure your FRONT Foot Pad Sensor is properly sealed.
Q. After installing my FRONT foot pad sensor back on my board it will not engage... A. 99 out of 100 times its because you have your tire cable pugged into your foot pad connector and your foot pad cable plugged into your tire cable connector.
Q. Is REMOVAL of the Foam Grip Tape difficult? Do you need a heat gun? A. No, our customized specially formulated 3M adhesive allows for easy removal. You heard that right! We had our 3M double sided adhesive customized so it will stick to wood, plastic, rubber, urethan, & foam. The best part is that all of this was achieved with virtually ZERO residue when removed!
Q. Why is the Foam Grip Tape tearing off in pieces when I am removing it? A. Make sure to pull off our adhesive liner at the same time as the foam. This will insure the foam and grip tape all come off in one piece and not 100's of tiny foam pieces.
Q. Can I install Ignite Grip Tape/Foam Grip Tape on top of my existing grip tape or do I need to remove my old grip tape? A. REMOVE your old grip tape! We NEVER recommend this practice. It is risky and can cause ghosting issues.

After testing multiple designs we have finally cracked the code for no ghosting issues on the new concave front foot pad sensors of the GT! Due to the known ghosting issues of the GT and different riding styles we are recommending the use of Simple Stop. At this moment Future Motion is recommending to all their customers to activate Simple Stop on their mobile app to insure no possibilities of ghosting. From our testing we have seen where our foam grip tape fixed the issue of ghosting boards. The springiness of our foam helps to pull the sensors apart from each other so they don't accidently detect a rider. I really think we nailed it with this version! However, if Future Motion can’t guarantee their boards not to ghost neither can we. So if you are worried about ghosting turn on your Simple Stop! We will not be liable for any damages caused by a ghosting board.
**When removing the front pad grip tape be sure you DO NOT REMOVE the top layer of plastic on the front foot pad sensor. ALWAYS remove tape by pulling it across the surface of the foot pad. NEVER PULL AWAY from the foot pad in a Upwards motion which can cause the sensor to delaminate and cause engagement issues**
WARNING: Stock grip tape removal or adding a pad to your front sensor can be potentially hazardous - DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. 1Wheel Parts LLC is not responsible for bodily injury or property damages.
