Petzl's new crashpads have been developed by the PETZL design team to address common problems from currently available pads and offer exceptional cushioning, clever folding and carrying systems and high quality, rugged materials, Petzl crashpads are designed to offer excellent protection for bouldering falls and are available in 3 different forms, all with a 3 year warranty.


The NIMBO is a back-up pad for bouldering sit-starts and for protecting a space between two crashpads. Sized at 75x50x3cm and weighing 700g it's a great addition to the larger pads.

With a one-piece hingeless design, the ALTO crashpad offers excellent protection thanks to a triple-layer foam assembly specifically developed by Petzl for better cushioning. Its patented folding system lengthens the life of the foam and provides a storage space when the crash pad is closed and covers the carrying system when opened out. The carrying system with its chest and waist adjustments and wide shoulder straps has been developed for high comfort levels and the pad also has a built in lounging mode for sitting back and watching the view! Sized at 118x100x10cm and weighing 5700g it's a perfect pad for everyday bouldering.

It's larger 148x118x12.5cm dimensions give an easier target to land on with better cushioning than it's smaller brother with a weight of 9400g
