Conditions and instructions for the safe and correct use of Grip clothing

The special grip material in Grip clothing was developed for pole dancing, among other things, but also for all sports that require a breathable, flexible material that also offers support.

Grip Clothing such as leggings, tops or bodies offer grip, but you shouldn't just rely on them 100%. Hands and alternate grip points such as hips, armpits, etc. should be used at all times.

Consumers who use Grip clothing do so at their own risk and are personally responsible for any safety precautions that should be in place. When pole dancing, use safety mats and "spotters" (a trained professional pole dance instructor who provides physical support) to ensure the movements are performed safely and correctly. Polestore (Isabella Casensky) accepts no responsibility for misuse and abuse of Grip clothing resulting in injury.

On rare occasions wearing Grip Garments can cause friction burns similar to those from Aerial Silk. Check your skin regularly for such friction burns the first time you wear them. This usually happens when the garment doesn't fit properly on all body parts/legs. For example, if leggings fit well at the top but are slightly looser with proportionally smaller calves, the fabric will tend to move and rub in that area - especially when pressed against a bodyweight bar.

Do not use Grip garments if you experience any signs of friction, redness, pain or other signs of friction burn, however minimal. Please note that Grip apparel is overly tested and the majority of people will have no problems.

DOS

  • Be careful how you position yourself in pole dance moves. When you slip into positions or create high friction movement, the wear rate increases.
  • Use Grip apparel for warm-up, cardio, strength training, and stretching. They also make great non-slip yoga leggings (no non-slip mat required!).
  • Use grip clothing for pole dance moves that you are very confident in performing and know the grip points for.
  • Always be careful when positioning yourself for a pole dance move and make sure you have enough grip before releasing your other grip points like your hands.
  • Check your Grip clothing for wear before each use. When the grip wears out, it's time for a new pair/product.

DONT's

  • Grip clothing is damaged by high abrasion activity, combinations and drops or slides. Avoid these to get the most out of your grip apparel.
  • Do not use Grip apparel for drops or slides.
  • Don't use grip apparel for moves or moves you've never attempted before, even if a spotter is present.
  • Do not use grip clothing if the grip has worn off.
  • Do not use Grip clothing when it is wet or when the sports equipment you are training on is wet.
  • Do not use grip apparel on non-chrome, steel, or brass bars.

Important note: Pole dance generates a high level of abrasion on the dancer's skin and of course on the clothing as well. Over time the grip of Grip apparel will degrade due to natural wear and tear in high wear areas. This is completely normal and cannot be complained about.
