Exciting week at Climb Design: good progress on two new climbing products. Sometimes prototyping can be heart breaking as you watch your great ideas crash and burn! But when things are working out it’s a good feeling.
We have two new products well underway: up to the second and third prototypes; intellectual property (IP) and production getting sorted out. We are aiming to launch Kickstarter campaigns to fund production, first one in the next couple of weeks.
Once the IP is underway we can tell you more, but we think that these will be interesting pieces of climbing equipment.
Being an industrial designer and climber leads to sleepless nights re-imagining the gear that I love so much. Climbers are innate problem solvers: combining moves and equipment to resolve a climb, I guess I just take that a bit further (equipment-wise that is, sadly not the moves/grades!)
