Want to be ready for the cooler months and getting out working hard on your winter boulder tick list? Now's your chance to win one of our UK-made Origin boulder pads and a boulder bucket to set you up nicely.
Origin (RRP £159.99) opens to 100 x 134cm and has an adaptable carry system for longer walk-ins. A taco-style fold - with the firmer, landing side on the outside - gives an uninterrupted landing zone with no creases. It uses two layers of foam: 7cm open cell to absorb impact and 4cm closed cell to spread your weight across the pad so you don't bottom out, all housed in a super tough 1100d Cordura shell.
We've been making Bouldering pads for over 15 years now, developed by boulderers in the Peak District and proven in some of the best bouldering venues in the world.
In that time we've learnt a lot; in terms of manufacturing techniques, materials and design we have a much better idea of what works and what makes a good pad. All our bouldering pads are made here in the UK at our HQ workshop so we can ensure a high level of workmanship, as well as trying and testing fabrics and construction. We see foam as the most important part of your bouldering pad, so we've worked tirelessly to find the best combination of foam to hit the sweet spot between impact absorption, durability, and weight. We've then opted for 1100 denier Cordura for the shell, proven to stand the test of time and a good dose of use and abuse. We then bar-tack and double-stitch it so you know it won't split at the seams when you take a big fall.
