Black Velvet is as OG a company as you can get. They’re a local company having been around the local longboarding scene in Southern California since the early days. Black Velvet was the first company to tackle the problem of slide pucks. Before BV came along skaters used to just cut pieces of chopping boards or get sample squares from hardware stores to use as pucks.
Black Velvet is back with possibly some of the best slide pucks on the market. Black Velvet Slide Pucks are handmade by California local Ivan Huang. Hands down, (See what I did there?) these slide pucks are one of the most durable, resilient pucks to ever be released. They are made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polythylene (UHMW) which means they have a ridiculously low friction co-efficient and are self lubricating.
These particular pucks come with a beveled edge for a smooth slide and come in a square shape.
