Terminator RRP €80

A lightweight, minimalist climbing glove built for sending steep ice, the Black Diamond Terminator is the modern version of our premier ice and mixed climbing glove.

The 4-way stretch shell at the fingers keeps the Enforcer dexterous and supple while climbing and the TPU knuckle patch protects against abrasion. A low-profile Hypalon wrist strap with a hook-and-loop closure was added for extra security and the long cuff cinches down to seal out spindrift.

Crack Gloves RRP €35

We set out with one goal: to create the best fitting, highest performance crack gloves on the market. And now, we're proud to introduce our very own Black Diamond Crack Gloves. Utilizing 3D patterning that gives an articulated fi t, and featuring a synthetic Suede for maximum abrasion resistance and breathability, the BD Crack Gloves are swanky The 0.6mm rubber adhesive film is set into a molded depression making a seamless surface transition from suede to rubber – resulting in the overall glove thickness of less than 1mm and which provides the perfect balance of protection, dexterity, and grip. The Hypalon strap provides a thin, lowprofile closure that's strong and secure for jamming, and the flat-stitched patterning reduces bulk and increases comfort. The BD Crack Gloves' white color reduces heat uptake during mega pitches in the desert sun, and also mimic the classic tape glove construction for superior fit.
