Fingered Boards

Because you deserve it

Sobre el proyecto

Lots of climbers are using hangboards to get stronger. Despite their (ridiculously high) price, they are a wonderful tool for advanced climbers.

In order to make this training tool accessible for all, I’d like to make affordable and customizable models.

The first step of my project is to offer a new hangboard in small/big and beginner/pro versions : the Little Fingered.

The product : the training hangboard Fingered Board.

So that’s what I offer for this campaign : a beautiful hangboard made of high quality beech wood!

For the wood, I will be using beech (PEFC label) coming from a place really close to my hometown, just from the other side of the German border!

In the small version, the Little Fingered is 52cm long, 12cm high, 4.5cm deep and costs (only) 40 €.

It is designed to offer the climber different sorts of grip (depth and difficulty) and remains easily portable.

The Little Fingered - small hangboard perfect for the training and/or the warm up at the cliff. Available in beginner and pro versions.

In the Bigg version, it is 65cm long, which allows more room for the middle crimps. It is also a little bit higher (13cm), but it has the same depth. Although slightly larger it can easily be used outdoors.

For all versions (small and big) two ways are available to hang them :

The first way is to use the small holes on the side that fit a 5mm diameter string. This way, it is easy to fix to a quickdraw and let it hang from the first bolt of a route. In this configuration, the Fingered Board is perfect for a warm up at the cliff.

The Fingered Board set in the outdoor configuration, it is attached to a quickdraw.

The second way is to use the screw holes where the hands will fit. In this case it is easy to screw it directly to the top of a doorframe or to any other structure meant for that use.

The Fingered Board set in the indoor configuration, direcly screwed at the top of the doorframe or with the help of the pull up bar from Décathlon.

 

 

As for the holes, the configuration is similar for all the versions:
  • a huge jug on the top,

  • series of crimps for the rest (from 40 to 15mm deep for the beginner version, from 35 to 10mm deep for the pro)

The big difference comes from the special places for mono and bi added on the pro version.

The pro versions (small and big), monos et bis are dug deeper.

 

 

What’s next?

For the moment, only one model (with 4 variations) is available. The goal is to offer more and more different models and make each of them custommizable.It will thus be possible to choose the depth of holes, the logo or even the written text on the board.

By offering this kind of personalization, I hope to offer hangboards that will please all climbers and that can be used by beginners as well as advanced practitioners.

Para qué es la financiación

The project is already well under way! Most of the machines are ready, the tools are warmed up and my hands are shaking in impatience to start working. But a few details are missing and the money is running out...

In order to buy the last tools and finish the website, I need a little boost.

More than that, there is an unknown that absolutelly needs an answer :

Are climbers interested in my project?

In order to find a common answer to all of that, I decided to launch this pre-order campaign of Fingered Boards, hangboards that start at 40 €. Thanks to the campaign, I could solve both my issues : finding the missing funds and to know the interest that climbers would have in my project.

Sobre el creador de proyecto

Engineer by training and climber by passion.

When I was still an honorable employee in the private sector, I started to set up a small workshop to start some woodworking.

My workshop, set in the basement.

Since it took more and more of my free time, I decided to move job to have more time to work on my project.

I now have a few nicely working machines which finally allow me to combine both my passions : climbing and engineering.

The main machine. Once connected to my computer, it makes pretty hangboards for lovely climbers :D
