  1. make a line of roller derby pads that actually fit derby girls and don't get in the way of movement

    Make a line of Roller Derby pads that actually fit derby girls and don't get in the way of movement while skating. Most knee pads are made to thick and hit each other when you legs cross over while skating. Derby girls are just as tough as New York and we deserve pads that can put up with the constant pounding yet not inhibit our movement around the track.

      Stay tuned for Spring 2012 as we’re introducing 2 brand new Roller Derby Specific products that we’ve had tested by the Gotham Girls. Nothing but great responses from them. Can’t wait for you to get your hands on them!!

    • Sponsor some small Derby Leagues! Please!

      I am on a smaller derby league... We are trying to grow. It is hard to do this with little support from businesses! We are Military affiliated (I myself am a spouse). We have Active, spouses, and also some civilians. We need help to grow as a league and branch out! Please help the Belles out!

        Ginger Belle!!! You’d be amazed at how many little leagues around the nation that we try and get some support to. It’s just not feasibly possible however for us to support each one the way we’d like. That being said, your best bet is to reach out to your local derby shop where you currently buy all your pads and have them reach out to us. Thanks for all your support!

          we’re exploring a few ways to do this. our last approach asked people to submit and rate designs. we’ll take a look at publishing our own designs for your feedback.

        • make a full-face helmet.

          A full-face helmet geared toward downhill skatboarding and speedboarding would be nice.

                  • Allow helmet color customization

                    It woukd work the same way one would go about customing a set of vans or nikes. You have the option to select your shell color and maybe even the emblem color and then you could choose the color of the sweat saver and maybe even the chinstrap to. I know that I would LOVE to have my own one-of-a-kind color setup on my helmet

                      We’ve definitely thought about this before. At the present time this isn’t feasible for us to do however we continue to explore new ways to accomplish this. Until then, we do offer a handful of different colors in the sweatsaver liner that you can buy to “pimp” your current brainsaver helmet. Thanks for the input!

                          Hi Mitch! It’s a great idea and we’re definitely working on it. We’ve got a couple guys we work with currently and are always open for requests for sponsorship for any new up and comers. So we’re definitely showing some love to our dedicated longboarders out there.

                          Thanks for the suggestion!

                          Justin

                        • 70s style full cut skate/longboard helmet that is dual certified!

                          these helmets look sweet and the only one like this i can find on the market in america isnt even certified and im not willing to sacrifice safety for style. if you could make this it would be awesome!

                            It’s actually an idea we’ve been looking in to accomplishing for quite some time. Thanks for the input and of course if we do end up making one, we’re going to make sure it’s dual certified.

                              Definitely an idea we’ve thought of before and were curious as to how many other people out there were looking for a product like this. WE’ll turn this idea over to our product guys to look into. Thanks for the input!

                              UPDATE AS OF 4/16/14 – This project is still very much on our “to do” board to figure out. But thanks for the continued input and we encourage you to keep the ideas flowing as you guys are what make our product better everyday.

                                  There is barely any protective gear available in South Africa and with the exponential growth that we are seeing in sports such as downhill skateboarding and roller derby at the moment there are huge oportunities for a brand like Triple 8.

                                        • Extend the kevlar fingertip wrap

                                          The kevlar only seems to protect all parts of the finger apart from the roadside, perhaps release a race glove with no finger pucks but gnaaaarly kevlar?

                                            Hey Conny! We’re working hard as we speak in developing a new glove for next year. We’ve even got our boy P-Swiss doing some heavy brainstorming to help us out :) Thanks
