All Uprising Holds are now made with Bombproof HTP!
What's all the fuss about?
Most climbing holds are made with with polyester resin - this is the cheapest option out there but often produces brittle holds. These easily chip around the edges and can break if dropped, slightly overtightened, put on a not-perfectly flat surface or generally looked at the wrong way.
Some overseas companies are now using types of urethane resins - some still have a tendency to chip, others flex when you pull on the jugs - and all are expensive.
Not happy with the products already available, we took matters into our own hands. After 6 months of testing, mixing and premixing we have come up with the next step in climbing hold material design: Bombproof HTP.
Bombproof Hybrid Tetrapolymer (HTP)
The composite we have developed is vastly superior to any hold material we have used. For instance a standard polyester hold dropped from shoulder height onto concrete has a fair chance of chipping or, worse, developing a fracture which may cause it to shatter when used on the wall. This is bad enough on a home bouldering cave, but on a commercial wall a falling sharp-edged broken hold is a serious hazard.
We recently took one of our test holds, threw it a full tilt against a concrete wall multiple times, smashed it repeatedly with a hammer then ran over it a few times for good measure. It hardly had a scuff mark on it, so we put it in the boulder room of the local gym where it is used every day - and the texture is still perfect!
So how much extra is it going to cost?
Nothing - we are offering you these cutting edge climbing holds at our regular low prices.
