Dear fellow climbers :)

What does the perfect gymring & hangboard combination look like? There are already a couple of pieces of gear on the market (metolius rock rings etc.) but none did the job well in my opinion. Either the materials were not satisfying (hard on the skin), the edges didn't offer enough variation or the jug was not suitable for the gymnasts false grip which is crucial for a lot of gymring excercises.

I tried to come up with a solution myself, not only thinking about the form problems mentioned above and the user but also about the people who make our products. I started a cooperation with small traditional carpenters in Austria who preserve precious woodworking knowledge in an era of more and more throw away furniture. This way both the customers and the carpenters benefit from each other. Climbers get high quality training devices and carpenters can keep up the production in times of fewer regular furniture orders.

What do you think of the design and the concept? I would appreciate your feedback a lot.
In case you like it you can find more information on the Kickstarter page I set up for the carpenters. All of the money goes directly to them.

an edge that is designed to move to the extent that gymnastic rings swing around seems totally impractical.

Looks like a wrist and finger and shoulder and elbow injury inducer with little climbing specificity.

What is the weight limit?  Can I rip sets of ten with a 50lb weight and a 200lb body?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
