What's New? ISPO 2015: Climbing Hardware Report Product News

The team from UKC were recently at the giant trade show of ISPO in Munich. We saw a lot of products, drank a little bit of German beer, chatted about climbing with as many people as we could find, and we made a few videos too.

In this, our first of three reports, we show you videos and the odd photo of some of the new climbing products that are hitting the shops either right now or very soon. There's some sexy looking gear on its way - some of it we have already tested on UKC, and some of it we will be testing later this year, but for now watch the videos and make your own mind up - what's hot and what's not?

Whilst I do like the Petzl Lanyard as a work solution for Sport Climbing, I can't see an easy and convenient way to hold the tail, you either put the adjuster at the end of the lanyard and have a long loop hanging down or you shove the adjuster close to the connection point and have a long tail you have to loop up and around, surely?

Nice product commitment from Stevie Haston - '…a little bit pricey, possibly - I've got no idea.'

I can see a lot of sense in the design of that BD Snaggletooth crampon.

Yes, he's a rubbish front for videos explaining products. Some of the previous one's he's done have been terrible.

Finally. A harness with 5 gear loops, ice clipper slots, fixed leg loops and light weight. Thanks DMM.
