For years- no, decades, Swiss engineering has been hailed as some of the most elite. Luxury cars and sports cars come with Swiss engineering inside of them, as do many expensive watches and clothing. In fact, the Swiss have even perfected the art of engineering chocolate! We all know Swiss chocolate to be some of the best and most decadent.
But they didn’t stop there. The Swiss have broken into the longboard market with BamBam, a new slide puck and glove company right out of Switzerland! Following closely after Crema Fire, BamBam reworked their design and production process for flint-impregnated slide pucks which spark and fire up during slides due to abrasion with asphalt. The result is bright, hot and dangerous (well, not really, the sparks are cool to the touch).
Sure, those pucks look super uber-cool, but the best part about BamBam is their gloves. Their gloves are some of the best we’ve seen so far, hugging every crevice of your hands, all the while being supremely flexible and comfortable. One of the riders we talked to said that he forgot he had them on at one point! These gloves come with built-in knuckle protection and a thick but breathable leather skin, so you can have confidence that these won’t fail you in the worst of falls! The strap is made of durable plastic straps, so you won’t have to worry about them falling off mid-slide.
Also from BamBam, these quirky little tail pucks for your kicktails so you can spark up your bluntslides! These aren’t available in North America, unfortunately. (We’re just as sad as you are.)
