About Triple Eight
When you think about action sports protective gear, the only name you need to know is Triple Eight.  There is no other protective gear company that delivers the craftsmanship, innovation and style as Triple Eight. Whether you are the veteran pro, the aspiring amatuer or a first timer, Triple Eight has you protected.
Carried by leading retailers around the world, Triple Eight is also the official protective gear supplier for Camp Woodward (leading global action sports camp), Stoked Mentoring (provides skateboard instruction and gear to inner city youth), and SkatePass (provides gear to public school systems throughout the U.S.).
Triple Eight products include various types of helmets, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, hip protectors, shin guards, long board slide gloves and related accessories.  Our products are utilized in a variety of action sports that include skateboarding, snowboarding, in-line skating ("rollerblading"), biking, wakeboarding, roller derby, scooter and more. 
We built the company by always providing superior customer service.  We understand that our customers are busy.  If we don't ship on time, ship incomplete orders, are out of stock in certain products, ship defective items, or do not return calls and emails in a timely fashion, we are hurting our customers.  That, in turn, damages our own reputation.  So we have always taken great pride in doing what we say we're going to do and over delivering.  Triple Eight also delivers quality products at an affordable price. While there are certainly less expensive products on the market, we are confident that we provide the greatest value in quality versus price. Whatever your protective needs are, Triple Eight has you covered! 

If you have any additional questions that are not answered on this page, please do not hesitate to contact us at 516-883-8889 or via email at info@triple8.com.  We will make every effort to respond promptly to any questions.
