Grove MapleXO SkateBacks: For iPhone Skatepunks

 |  |  |  |  |  June 7, 2012


The last time we mentioned Grove, they had made a pretty cool iPhone case made from skateboard scraps. However, they were available as a limited edition, so there weren’t probably enough for everyone who wanted one, and they also cost more than $200. This time around, Grove has worked with MapleXO to make these clever add-ons that customize the back of your iPhone, and made them accessible to all who want one.

Grove SkateBacks are fashioned from waste material that is created during the manufacture of skateboards, thanks to the ingenuity of MapleXO. They are available in three colors schemes, vibrant, calm and the somewhat almost monochrome neutral. The backs attach to your iPhone thanks to a peel-and-stick 3M adhesive, which promises not to leave any residue when you remove it.

SkateBacks are handmade in Portland, Oregon, and are available directly through Grove for $49(USD). I think these are cool, but I’d love to see them release a full skateboard case that’s not just a limited edition like before.
