the 1.0 is kinda redundant if they plan on making updates.
I see this as a good thing. Gets more money circulating in our micro industry. Rather than spending money on other shit we now have the option to spend money on a rollerblading specific company.
Aragon hasn't posted about this on facebook yet. He is probably embarassed.
He has and he is (probably) juiced.
Not that this is hot news, the wristbrace has been on the Scribe website for weeks.
good idea, since he's actually wearing a wristguard quite often.
however, the one he's using somehow looks...less shitty?
maybe that's just because he's wearing it.
Not a bad idea to give Aragon a wrist guard. They will sell.

To answer some things briefly.
The #1 announced problem with rollerbladers is wrist injuries. Over the years this has been addressed the most and no companies have done anything about it really.
Upon what most of you think, we concluded studies over the last 18 months and found that out of 300 people polled in our industry 189 said they use a wrist device on a weekly-daily basis, 85 said they would wear it if it was available, and 26 claimed they needed no use for a wristbrace. Those number are a clear depiction of what is needed in our market. Our industry lacks the needed research to grab more money out of our own industry. Everyone is buying Walgreen, Target, Mueller, Ace - supporting medical industries when companies within our industry can create and provide the same equipment, everyone just decides to just create the same products and roll back into the same circle..
Did you guys ever think about our roots? The amount of protection gear endorsed, created, sold? Yea it was more prevalent in a NEW sport, but its still needed. The #1 or #2 question from new rollerblader parents in a skateshop.. "where is the protective gear." I guess Scribe will be the only available contender... Obvious stuff people. Business 101. You little kids need to look at the big picture. Call it GAY, but when your wrist is all fucked up and you look over and see your buddy with a Scribe brace, you'll be curious..
All wrist protection available in shops are hefty bulky wristguards! This is a wristbrace! It adds support to past injurt, protects your palms and comes with a removable aluminum splint incase you want something that will be more of protection to hold your wrist in place.
This has been in sampling and prototyping for a year, Aragon has signed off on changes and is happy with the product.
Aragon did post on his FB about his involvment with the company. If anything he is frustrated with how ignrorant and stupid everyone is with not reading the Scribe interview, the description in the vimeo post, or other messages people have written all over the web.
Lastly - we are not a wheel company, we just provide wheels. We will be providing as much as possible for the inline industry for years to come.. Full lines of protection gear ( we don't have a company that offers this in our industry ). With the growing popularity in protection gear, this was an OBVIOUS decision for the business.
If you don't wear gear, or don't need it --- then don't buy it. Very simple..
Oh and this was extremely neccessary considering Brian wears a wristguard/brace half the time he skates so he was a perfect face for the product. The product has pre-orders around the globe already.. I guess the product speaks for itself and retailers are excited about a NEW product on shelves..
Go grab yours next month! try it out. Like it, hate it. Support thats all..
See you at BCSD.
How much are they going to be?
boom!! thank you scribe for clearing that up
Post proof of the surveys you did and also post proof of the claims that your cores at "size times stronger". These are insane claims, but you would easily be able to prove them if they were true. Just curious.
Richie Eisler sucks
No man, this is rollerblading, any item that possibly compromises one's coolness will ultimately result in a fail in sales. You know, cause like, if you don't look cool and tough and act like a scum bag that hasnt showered in a week, you aren't a real rollerblader. So making a product that would be beneficial to rollerbladers and would help in the long run with their health and keep them blading and not be hindered by injuries, well, that just isn't cool.Call it GAY, but when your wrist is all fucked up and you look over and see your buddy with a Scribe brace, you'll be curious.
I only wear one after I have mangled my wrist, until it heals
I WTB MINDGAME STICKERS, PM ME
I have tendenitis in my right wrist from playing baseball, and anytime I skate without a wrist guard, my wrist feels fucked.
All scribe did was get a top pro rider to endorse a current "trend" in the industry. It works for scribe and The Prince. Good business
