  • 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 continues 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.

  • 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.
