Brands

  • 8b Plus

    8b Plus

    When I here 8bplus, I think 'eat more chalk'.

    All products available by 8bplus have been designed by climbers. This guarantees that no matter what chalk, shirt, chalk bag, boulder bag etc, the design has been thought through by someone who's been in the same situation as you, when the chalk bag didn't open properly or the trousers weren't flexible enough or the chalk just didn't do the job. The brand originates from one of the most famous mountain chains in the world, the Alpes. This allows them to experience/picture what the exact needs of mountaineers, and (multipitch) climbers are. Their product range goes from wristbands made of accessory cords all the way to your classic wardrobe, shirts, hats, tops but also a huge variety of chalk bags and boulder bags.

  • Antworks

    Antworks

    When talking about Antworks the company, how THEY produce their gear, what material do THEY use, who is in charge of design, manufacturing etc well the answer to ALL these questions is Christian.

    chris

    Christian has been working on and designing climbing related training equipment for the past 20 years. Antworks has been established in October 2012 and it all started in Christian's garage thanks to his passion for the sport. He now has several product designer awards that help him pursue the goal of developing artistic boards with high performance potential.  Christian comes up with innovative ideas himself and takes note of what the climbers using his products have to say.

    baseHe is still today the only man in manufacturing them, so if you have any Antwork product sitting at home or hanging on your wall, you can be sure that it passed through Christians hands. The advantage of Antworks is the fact that the climber can combine the different products and training tools to meet his/her specific needs.

  • Beal

    Beal

    Beal is a french company that has been established 70 years ago, in 1950. It's primary product at the time were cords and laces for anoraks. It is only 25 years later, after one of the employees came back from a meeting in Grenoble where he saw that the mountain rope presented looked a lot like what Beal was already producing, that the rope production got started. In 1976 the first BEAL climbing rope is presented and ten years later in 1986 BEAL is the number 1 manufacturer of climbing ropes. The company doesn't stop there but continuous to develop and innovate the rope scene. In 1990 they come up with the iceline which is a game changer for all ice climbers because the rope is much more fluid and has a lower shock force. In 1993 they add yet another line of rope to their inventory, the industrial rope for work at height. BEAL has ever since continued to improve and develop their products and still today are a great reference for all climbers in need of rope.

  • Beastmaker

    Beastmaker

    Beastmaker originated in Sheffield UK and was created by a bunch of climbers who at the time just wanted to improve their fingerstrength from home since university didn't leave to much time for climbing. They were obsessed with creating an ergonomically, skin friendly training tool. In 2007, the first Beastmaker fingerboard sees daylight. It got fine tuned for another 6 month but after that it was a pleasure to train on it. 

    Initially the Beastmaker was designed for personal use and maybe a few friends, but after the Sheffield gang hit up Leicester with their new product the market for it exploded. They improved the fingerboard one more time by using computer aided design and manufacturing before it became what it is today, the new standard for fingerboards. 

    Today, every climbing gym and almost every "serious" climber has either a Beastmaker 1000 or 2000. It has helped many athletes achieve their goal and track progress.

  • Blackroll

    Blackroll

    Black Roll - Everything is a circle

    In life there are positives and negatives, good and bad, cold and warm, heathy and sick, it is all about finding balance. Just the same way a climber who trains hard, needs to rest and recover appropriately. It is a reality a lot of people have a hard time accepting but unless you have a certain awareness of your body and it's needs to rest, recover, eat, train etc you will not become the climber or boulderer you have visioned. 

  • Boot Bananas

    Boot Bananas

    BootBananas was created in South London by Alex and Phil, with the one and only mission of eliminating that unbearable smell of Phils climbing shoes. Every climber/boulderer can relate to that, long hours at the crag, on the project or on the big wall, it doesn't matter, the climbing shoes will smell terribly at the end of the day. After trying out nearly every deodoriser on the market the couple decided to solve the problem themselves.

  • Cafe Kraft

    Cafe Kraft

    With the invention and definition of the Rot Punkt Kurt Albert reinvented free climbing and launched a wave of revolution in the climbing scene. Wolfgang Güllich pushed the limits further and further until he had the hardest first ascent on 3 continents at a time. The original CAFÉ KRAFT in the Pegnitztal was one of the main reunion spots during Kurt and Wolfgangs time and taking over the name for the climbing gym was a no brainer. Today the name Cafe Kraft hasn't lost it's reputation or charm, many professional and hobby climbers make use of the Kraft products and gyms on their journey to the top. 

  • CamelBak

    CamelBak

    CamelBak was founded with the ideal of promoting an active lifestyle and keeping you hydrated whilst doing so. They are the first ones to introduce BPA free bottles on the market and keep searching for innovation.

    When looking at the climbers community you can see CamelBak is quiet popular as they keep your drinks hot/cold the long hours on the crag or project. When you just sit there watching someone else's GO on the boulder with your nice Camelbak cup in your hands keeping you warm, hydrated and hopefully ready to send the next route. 

  • Casper's

    Casper's

  • Climb On

    Climb On

    ClimbOn was invented by Polly Glasse in 1995/96, after her house burned down she decided to take her hobby and make a living of it. Ever from the beginning the main value of Polly and the company was to produce skincare products with no synthetic ingredients, and suitable for our planet and all animals who habitat it! They use plant butters, vegetable and fruit oil, plant based waxes rather than synthetic products with the idea that planet earth knows best and is best for bringing balance back to your organism. This is extremely important in the climbing community, especially since a lot of climbers spend hours and days on the rock/crag having to treat their fingers, and what better way to take care of your skin in nature than with nature based products, it just connects you to the rock, forest and your natural environment. They also choose food-grade over cosmetic grade ingredients because of the connection with mother earth and their soothing effect on your body. 

    All in all, climbOn has a huge range of products all meant to bring balance back to your system using natures finest ingredients. In climbing these products have become very popular because skin care is a major factor in this sport and can make the difference between sending your project or looking at the rock without a clue.

    Climbskin is still a pretty new company that has been founded by a bunch of friends who all loved nature and sports, especially climbing. Their goal is to overcome this ever recurring problem of damaged skin limiting an athletes performance or training possibilities. So that is when and why they pooled all their knowledge and ideas together to create what we all know today, Climb Skin Hand Cream. This was made possible by the amazing team of chemists, biologist, physicians and especially the fact that they were all surrounded by climbers and their needs/feedback over the past years. Furthermore, as many climbing brands do, the respect for nature has to be a priority, which is why 1% of all their sales is donated to partnerships that promote sustainable climbing or associations like Climbers Against Cancer.

Today Edelrid produces a huge variety of products ranging from safety equipment, clothing, ropes, slings all the way to ice gear.  

    Edelrid has mastered four divisions over the past 150 years. These are Safety, Sport, Adventure Park and customer solutions and have given the company a solid ground to stand on and further innovate. Having a solid base in these divisions also makes Edelrid largely immune to market fluctuations and give them the required freedom to continue developing the best products in each category. All 4 areas are equally developed and innovated through combined knowledge of the four. The one thing these divisions all have in common is "mountain sport" which is the main area of focus and expertise.

    As a conscious sustainable mountain sports company Edelrid produce equipment suited for nature. Naturally, protecting the environment is priority number one. The mindful treatment of people and nature is an important part of their corporate culture and company philosophy. Here is an extract from the EDELRID corporate aims:

    "As an environmentally-friendly company, we want to reduce resource consumption and emissions in order to ensure sustainable corporate development."

    In order for the environmental impact to be measurable and transparent and to give the incentive to constantly improve, Edelrid has been publishing environmental statements since 2010.

  • Faza

    Faza

    Faza was founded in 2014. The story starts with a young boy who's father was a carpenter and let him play with his tool set. Growing up, being surrounded by different types of wood and different tools to work it fascinated him.

  • Five Ten
  • Frictionlabs

    Frictionlabs

    Frictionlabs was founded by Kevin and Keah with the goal of giving the climbing community a choice of chalk and a high quality product too. The founders got the idea when they looked at the climbing scene, every aspect of climbing is being pushed to its limits. Shoes, harnesses, helmets, clothes, quickdraws etc everything is being improved but chalk did not catch the attention of these manufacturers until Frictionlabs came along. Up to that point, chalk was just magnesium, good to dry your hands if humid and that was it. When Frictionlabs put there chalk to the test compared to other brands out there this is what was concluded by Dr. Wesley Ingram Ph. D. Geology and Geochemistry Consultant “Chalk C, FrictionLabs, yields the highest Magnesium detection. Chalk C, FrictionLabs, also yields much lower counts for the other elements, hence is the most chemically pure.”

  • Klean Kanteen

    Klean Kanteen

    KleanKanteen came into being around the year 2000 when a family in the United States noticed there were no reusable, stainless steel water bottles to be found anywhere. The only thing around that time was plastic, it was the solution for everything. In 2004 the first BPA free stainless steel bottles hit the market and were a great success. Ever since, reusable water bottles and cups are used all over the world and KleanKanteen is one of the main providers. In the climbing scene they left there mark too. They are so handy for outdoor adventurers, mountaineering, bouldering because they keep your tea warm, your water cold and are basically indestructible. 

    Along the way, KleanKanteen stayed a family and employee-owned company, meaning they have been rejecting investor money for a long time. This allows them to stay true to their principles and work on what they want when they want it. They are a proud member of the 1% For The Planet movement, where they have already donated over $3 million directly to environmental organizations dedicated to preserving and restoring wild places.

    From the very beginning, Klean Kanteens have been built with love— the love of adventure, the love of conserving wild places and the love of replacing single-use plastic.

  • Kong

    Kong

    In 1830 the company was founded by and named after the Bonaiti family. Situated at the foot of the Alps they recognised the need for personal protective equipment, as they saw more and more people "hanging" in the mountains. Later in 1977 the company changed its name to KONG but continued with the same principles: 

    “To manufacture safety where risk is the protagonist”

    The sport of mountaineering became more popular in the mid 19th century when most of the most difficult summits had been climbed. Initially, magazines told climbers what equipment it was they needed to get and down the mountain safely. Climbers used pear shape carabiners that until then were only seen with firemen in Munich.

    For a.long time Bonaiti was the only company to produce this kind of equipment and with time and the influence of some mountaineers comes innovation. Bonaiti are the first ones to design and produce the D-Shaped carabiner. Another 50 years later, in the 1960's, the very first light alloy carabiner was designed and when it hit the market the climbers went crazy over it. It was first of all the first carabiner to no longer weigh 200g but 65g and second of all climbers could get these alloy carabiners in different colours to match their outfits, for the first time ever.  

  • La Sportiva

They are leaders in the production of climbing shoes, approach shoes, hiking boots, mountain apparel and more. They also cover the market in the categories of mountain running, trekking and skimountaineering. Not long ago LaSportiva started to cover these categories and produces equipment and apparel for them as well.

  • Metolius

    Metolius

    Metolius was founded 40 years ago near the Metolius River in Oregon. Back in the 80s the climbing scene was still quiet new and the choice of equipment was quiet limited. Harnesses were not comfortable, carabiners not tested and a lot was not even available which is why a lot of people just manufactured their own gear, and so did Metolius. 40 years later they are still in business and amazed at how well the sport of climbing has developed. Metolius also recognized the great dangers associated with mountain sports such as rock fall, untied knots, avalanches etc. and decided to focus on creating the strongest and safest equipment. They do all the testing of the material and gear themselves and if they do not feel 100% safe or have a doubt with the certifications they work with the sanctioning bodies (CE/UIAA) to help re-write the standards. Safety first.

  • Nutricare

    Nutricare

    Patch emerged in July 2016 when James Dutton (the founder of Nutricare) noticed that his sons wounds would not heal properly when covering them with everyday plasters/covers. He also noticed his sons skin reacting badly to the traditional plasters, but could not understand why. After a bit of research he discovered that common wound care coverings contain many chemicals that can cause allergic reactions. With this number being on the rise he decided to come up with an alternative. That is when PATCH hit the markets. A plaster that is skin friendly, natural and promotes the healing of the wound. Furthermore, he made sure the materials used were eco friendly and bio degradable. 

    This makes these plasters perfect for outdoor adventures such as climbing, bouldering, runnig, mountaineering etc. Small cuts and wounds could ruin your trip, especially if they happen early on. PLAST it up, through the rest wherever you want with a good conscious, and continue your adventure.

  • Petzl

    Petzl's mission was to create innovative solutions, be it as service or a tool, that help the user improve and keep safe in vertical terrain.

  • Red Chili

    Red Chili

    Only climbers know what climbers need.

    Red Chili was founded 20 years ago by Uwe and Stefan. The inspiration came after the two climbed the west face and reached the summit of El Cap. After 20 long and hard pitches they reached the top with burning, painful feet. That is when the thought of manufacturing their own climbing shoe popped into their heads the first time. 

    At the time they were distributing another shoe brand across Europe and had constant troubles with manufacturers not being on time, unsatisfied customers and other issues. They said they had to drown their problems in Red wine, so one evening as they were sitting there drinking wine and listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers they took the decision of launching their own brand. The day after when waking up the only thing they saw written on a wine drenched piece of paper was "Red Chili". They knew what they had to do.      

    Two years later, the first pair of RedChili climbing shoes hit the markets and had great success. In just a short time span their brand gained popularity and established itself as a leading brand in climbing shoes. 

  • ReWhite

    ReWhite

    ReWhite or as many people still know it WhiteOut was founded in 2016. It initially started with Julian and David wanting to make colourful chalk. They quickly realised that people where still predominantly using white chalk and the idea was thrown out.

    But thanks to this, they both got to understand chalk better and how it actually works or is supposed to work. In cooperation with a large chemical company they analysed and discovered that what is important with chalk is the amount of water crystalized in it. The more water, the less it can absorb and thicker it gets. So ideally you want a thin layer of dry chalk for maximum grip and friction. And that is how ReWhite hit the market. Climbers and boulderers all over the world use it and love it. 

  • Scarpa

    Scarpa

    Scarpa was founded in 1938 and has its headquarter in the Dolomite Mountains in northern Italy. With Scarpa innovation and tradition always shared the same importance.

    SCARPA stands for Società Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima, which means Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area. Parisotto, who later on buys and runs the company with his brother, began to learn about shoemaking in 1940 at the age of 11 and got his first job at SCARPA at the age of 13. In 1950 Parisotto started his own shoemaking business with his brother Giorgio.

    Together they produced about 15 pairs of shoes a day that they sold to farmers who were looking for durable comfortable shoes. 1956 is the year Parisotto and his brothers managed to save up enough money to make SCARPA an offer, that they go on to accept. It didn't take long before SCARPA became internationally known and imported to the States. Today no climber, boulderer or person that has to do anything with climbing won't know SCARPA.
