40 Foot Falls A Reality?

Specialist American climbing gear producer Garton have teamed up with a professional stuntwoman to develop a series of inflatable bouldering mats. Garton claim that the mats, made from a super durable Dyneema based material will put an end to regular mat construction methods. Their mats are up to 4 times lighter, take up less than one fifth of the weight, and will suffer falls of up to forty feet! Although they can be blown up with the mouth in around fifteen minutes they come with a lightweight, large volume stirrup pump which will see you ready to climb in under three minutes.With a US patent already in the bag the company are keen to establish themselves in the British market with a view to providing a safe and practical aid to gritstone climbing.Watch this space for a review as soon as we can get our hands on one. ———————————————————————–If you have any news worth reporting please contact Matt – matt@planetfear.com / 0114 2969114———————————————————————–
