Questions? You're in the right place.
Does the ski grip?
Oh yes, the very special friction (grippy) material above and below makes the skis sits like a shot. The more you scrape the wax and brush, the better it grips!
What types of skiing does Mr.Gripy work for?
Believe it or not, Mr.Gripy works for ALL types of skis!

Here you can add everything from cross-country skiing, slalom skiing, randoneski, telemarkski, ski jumping, children's skiing, adult skiing, powder skiing and much more.
Are there any professional athletes using Mr.Gripy?
There are several, one of them is Luke Allen, head coach for the Norwegian freeski team. The feedback from Luke after using through a winter was "Mr.Gripy is an ultra portable, ultra stable ski prepping bench. It has been a great asset to my travel kit, and has traveled the globe. I can't recommend it enough »

As we in HappyNorwegian usually say, if it is good enough for the national team, it is probably good enough for most people!
How did you come up with the idea?
We were two students who both did cross-country skiing and alpine skiing. As students with little space and limited finances, we thought the ski vises at the store were expensive, not flexible and took a lot of space. We thought it all was complicated and began the development of what has become Mr.Gripy today!
Does it work for snowboard?
We have many satisfied snowboard customers. It should be mentioned that many boards are relatively wide (often between 20-30 cm) and Mr.Gripy is "only" 17 cm wide. That is the main reason why we do not use snowboarding in our marketing. The steel egde notch is also somewhat low for wide snowboarding.
Where is Mr.Gripy produced?
Everything is produced under artic conditons in Norway!
Where do I fix my skis with Mr.Gripy?
Personally, we at HappyNorwegian prefer to put out Mr.Gripy to a table, where long tables are preferable. Some actually put the Mr.Gripy on the car bonnet (we do not guarantee that scratches can occur), others prefer them on a workbench in the booth. Here the imagination is what sets the limits!
Is this something I can take with me on a travels?
Mr.Gripy go straight into each other and take up little space, both at home, in the car and in the bag out on tour. Our super user and head coach for the Norwegian freeski team says "It has been a great asset to my travel kit, and has traveled the globe. I can't recommend it enough».

Customers outside this area must contact us via letter, e-mail or telephone. Sales to consumers are regulated by for instance the Norwegian Act relating to consumer purchases (forbrukerkjøpsloven) and the Norwegian Act relating to a cooling-off period in connection with certain contracts for consumer purchases (angrerettsloven).

If the VAT, taxes or other fees are changed, our prices will be changed accordingly.

All orders are considered binding. You will receive an order confirmation via e-mail which includes all the information you need. You will also receive an e-mail with updated information as your order is being processed.

If you should regret a purchase, you can report this to us via e-mail or return the product with all the packaging within 14 days from the day you received the products (the cooling-off period) and attach a document explaining why you are returning the product. It is up to you to decide whether you want another product or your money back. Please note that the cooling-off period is extended to 3 months if you do not receive a document explaining your right to cancel the order with the product.

The condition for returning the product is that it has not been used and can be sold as new. All labels must still be attached and the original wrapping must also be included. You can return a product without giving any reasons for doing so, but we encourage you to describe the reason for returning the product on the return form.

If a situation should arise that makes it impossible for us to meet our obligations with regards to this agreement, which according to generally accepted purchasing rules and regulations is deemed to constitute force majeure, the afflicted party's obligations cease to exist for the period that the extraordinary situation endures. Situations constituting force majeure include for instance change of law, strike, lockout and other circumstances the parties have no control over, such as war, rebellion, fire, explosion or government sanctions. The same applies to sudden changes to the requirements concerning labelling of products, warning information, a ban on sales or decisions made by public authorities that affect the market and products in a negative direction or causes an abnormal drop in the market.
