FAQs

DO FISHBONES WORK WITH THE PINT?
Currently, Fishbones DO NOT work with the OneWheel Pint. They are CLOSE so it will appear as though they are, we assure you they are not and using them in this capacity is risking your own safety!! Please wait for us to get a proper fit and many miles of testing before putting them on your Pint. 
We have been designing them since the Pint was announced so they will be here ASAP!!!
WHERE ARE THE C2s and C3s FROM THE OG FISHBONES?
We can still make these for you--but we only do special order. The C1 size is the perfect concave for most riders. However--detail-oriented riders might want to customize with higher risers--we have them available by special order. For the same price--just email us at sales.fishbones@gmail.com and we can hook you up with the colorway and the size you want.
DOES THE SNAP N FLO REALLY JUST STICK ONTO THE GRIP TAPE?
YUP! We went through many materials to land the right combo. Precise installation is necessary and the instructions will guide you through. However, it just takes a couple minutes to apply them, and then 24 hours with pressure to allow them to cure. Keeping them in good shape is easy--if you only have one pair, you just leave them on your board. 

DO I NEED SPECIAL GRIP TAPE?
NOPE! Though many of our favorite PRO riders will laugh at us--we've found that you can use stock grip tape when you have Fishbones and feel just as locked in as high-end grip tape! 
This is simply due to the concave shape and the way it keeps your foot from slipping forward or backward when you are "locked in." Every Fishbone comes with Jessup Grip Tape along the spine of the bones that's been laser cut and pre-applied to spec so that it's a perfect fit and looks just as badass as the rest of the set-up. Of course, our favorite combo is The Float Life (TFL) Grip Tape with Fishbones. But you can just apply it right onto whatever set-up you have.
 
DOES IT WORK WITH PRO RIDE GRIP/EVA FOAM?
No. Unfortunately at this time, it does not. But the challenge has been accepted, and we're working on it. And we don't like to fail!

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE FILET CARD TOOL?
The Filet Card Tool is for removing the Fishbones without compromising your Snap N Flo material. But it's just a credit card-sized piece of hard plastic--if you lose it you can just use your gym card or ID. Even though we offer them, you don't need to buy one as a replacement unless you just really like us (and we'll probably throw some schwag in there for you, too!).

CAN THE SNAP N FLO MATERIAL WITHSTAND ROUGH OR WET RIDING CONDITIONS?
Yes, with a caveat: if you get mud or dirt encased into your Snap N Flo material, it won't accept your Fishbones snugly. But the good news is that it's easily cleanable with a damp toothbrush or a toothpick. Additionally, if you need to replace it, you will receive a replacement strip with your initial order. The Fishbones are extremely durable and we've ridden and tested them in the mightiest of conditions. Just ask those crazy Wheelbillies in Asheville, NC, or the hard-charging West Coast Landpirate up in British Columbia. They hold up. We have noticed that the SnapNFlo can degrade after 300-400 miles. At this point, when your Fishbones are not snapping nicely into the SnapNFlo, you will want to use the spare SnapNFlo provided with your order. If you need more, we offer it on this website at a low cost. Removal and replacement of SnapNFlo strips is just like with grip tape--provide a little heat with a heat gun or a hair dryer. Then peel it off your board, as well as the bottom of your Fishbones.

CAN I CLEAN MY FISHBONES?
YUP! Just remove them with the Filet Card Tool, and run them under some water, scrub them with your Luffah in the shower, take them to the dry-cleaner--whatever you want. The Snap N Flo will be fine. You can clean the Snap N Flo material that is permanently affixed to your board with a damp toothbrush or a toothpick. 

IS THERE MORE OR LESS FOOT FATIGUE
OR DO THEY CHANGE THE RIDING STYLE?
Hmm. You tell us. Our observations have been that it helps drastically with the reduction of "speed wobble," drastically reduces foot fatigue and subtly places you into a more aggressive "downhill" position for riding--snowboarders will know what we mean. We have noticed increased thigh workouts--especially on the front leg. Controlling the board is less about micro-movements from the muscles in your feet and much more about using your thigh and core to drive the board. But, ultimately the Fishbones will be your adventure--and we want to hear from you!
