Technigrip®

Technology

Did you ever ask yourself why skippers don’t slip on the decks of their boats? Here’s the answer!

A PATTERN AND GRIP MASTERED IN THE SAME WAY SINCE 1980

Developed by our engineers, Technigrip® is a patented rubber sole. It is the combination of a laminated design and a dense rubber that provides great grip and good resistance. Similar to a car tyre, tbs created a sole that is sufficiently supple to grip as closely as possible whilst being rigid enough not to wear out quickly.

EVERY SOLE HAS TECHNIGRIP® HARDNESS

To give you the best grip possible, our shoes are tested before they are sold. Our standards are high because we want to keep your feet comfortable and make your sailing easier.

A SOLE IS TESTED AND APPROVED BY SAILING CHAMPIONS

Michel Desjoyeaux, two-time winner of the Vendée Globe, wore shoes with Technigrip® soles. This was also the case for François Gabart, when he won the Vendée Globe and many other races. The technology developed by tbs still has many victories to come! Check out our shoes with Technigrip® technology here.
