Block Risers GoBLOCK Purple Riser Kit - GoPro Mount & Universal Risers
The GoBLOCK™ provides the lowest profile mount and best point of view for your action sports camera. Tucked beneath your board and protected by your wheels and trucks, not only is the mount out of the way of your feet, but it is located in the safest place on your entire setup.
The patent pending BettyBOX™ allows you to quickly interchange your action camera to the front or rear truck in seconds and without the need for any tools. The dual-finger locking tabs keeps your camera secure and stable. The shape of the GoBLOCK™ also allows for a great grip when serving as a handheld mount.
GoBLOCK™ works perfectly for drop thru decks by pairing the TopBLOCK™ with the BettyBOX™ to lock the camera mount securely into place atop of your deck.
Don’t forget, you don’t need sticky adhesives, replacement parts, or have to cut your grip tape to make it work. This is a one time purchase (unless you want one for both trucks) that has been battle tested by our pros in the field. The mount is so durable that it survived a 1, 2, and 3 story drop test.
BLOCKs Fresh Nutz fit to mix and match with the GoNutz. The GoBLOCK action camera thumb screw will conveniently fit standard skate hardware so don’t stress.
GoBLOCK Riser Kit works with GoPro's Hero® 1, 2, 3, 3+, and 4 cameras. Get a completely new perspective on your daily rides without losing the functionality of your board, keeping your feet free and clear so you can maximize your shredding experience. This is without a doubt, the coolest GoPro Hero camera mount for your skateboard on the market today.

A riser is a flat plastic pad that can be mounted between the skateboard truck and the skateboard deck. Riser pads increase the space between the truck and deck, raising the board up so that you don't experience wheel bite. Wheel bite occurs when the wheel touches the skateboard deck during a sharp turn and stops the wheel from rotating. Riser pads come in a variety of colors and thickness levels. Depending on your skateboarding style, riser pads can prolong the life of your skateboard deck by reducing the risk for stress cracks where the deck and the trucks meet.
Skateboard decks that use wheels smaller than 55mm do not typically require risers; however, 1/8” risers can help keep the hardware from vibrating loose.
As the wheels get larger, there's a greater chance for wheel bite, which may cause a nasty wipeout. In general, the longer the board and the larger the wheel, the more height is needed in a riser pad.
