What is a Slipp-Nott® Sports Traction System & How Does it Work?

The first sports traction system to hit the market, Slipp-Nott® consists of a base and a mat of replaceable, adhesive sheets.

When stepped on, dirt sticks to the mat, instantly cleaning the soles of athletic shoes!

For fast starts & stops on smooth indoor floors, athletes need traction

Slipp-Nott® is the original and preferred sports traction system for professional athletes who rely on our premium, adhesive mats to lift dirt and dust buildup from athletic shoe soles to get good, consistent traction for top performance and safety. You’ll see our products used at most televised basketball games!

For all sports on indoor courts

Our time-proven products are great for any sport played on hardwood or waxed floors including basketball, volleyball, handball, indoor soccer, floorball (unihockey), squash, badminton, table tennis, aerobics, fitness and fencing.

Premium-Grade Base & Mat

The first sports traction to hit the market, our system starts with a high-grade base made of modified Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Terpolymer (A.B.S) which is bonded to a ribbed rubber backing to protect the floor and hold the base in place.
