Temu - a new shopping website that some people have been raving about. In need of a zipper pull restock for our hydration packs, we decided to check it out. It looks like a bootleg Amazon and that's exactly what it is. Within seconds we found our zipper pulls for only $0.57! Then, we needed to hit a $10 minimun, so we went down the rabbit hole and created what could be the best/worst product round up in the history of the internet.
Disclaimer: If you're going to buy any actual skate hardware, please go to a local skateshop, support a skateshop online (we like Thanelife & Insanity) or buy directly from our brand partners. DO NOT CUT CORNERS HERE. That said, there are plenty of other inexpensive skate-accessories (dare we say cheap) you could buy yourself at the digital flea market that is Temu. *We haven't tested any or recommend of this stuff. This list is more or less for entertainment.
Apparently compatable with all the major tracking platforms i.e. Garmin, Stava. Cheap, definitely. Accurate, maybe? Someone test it out and let us know.
