About


sBrake is literally a "skateboard brake". Have you seen one around? Nope! This is an easily removable attachment for your board which enables you to slow or stop yourself with complete control.

Each brake is hand crafted and constantly tweaked to become better!
Each brake is hand crafted and constantly tweaked to become better!



Safety is an enormous issue in the world of skateboarding. Skaters love to go down steep hills fast and seek busy traffic to weave through, however, there is a HUGE danger in doing so. Ever had a moment where you needed to stop as quickly as possible? You may have pulled that off without brakes attached to your board, BUT, were you in control? How close did you come to serious injury? Remember, when you're out with an injury, you're not out skating.

Braking takes a toll on your board.

With our brake attachment, the tail of your board won't rub off. The sBrake provides a positive, reliable way to stop quickly and allows you to carefully modulate your braking to improve tricks and add style to your skating.

With YOUR help, we will be able to produce prototypes for teams of skaters to test, allowing us to further improve upon our baseline design. After thorough testing, we will be able to produce a production batch and introduce them to market. Funds will also be used in the branding, labeling and packaging of the brake. Your contribution will also be used in the final patenting of the product.

Whatever style you or your board is; there will be diverse colors too!

The sBrake will be constructed from RECYCLED TIRES and high-end alloys to withstand intense use. Best of all, sBrake prototypes will be produced using local, USA machine shops and assemblers.

The sBrake will be developed in PA and the prototypes will be built in NY and tested in California due to skaters population and the project leader (me) being in California.

Help us CREATE the coolest alternative to falling down.
