About Black Swan
Black Swan climbing holds are created using rigid polyurethane. The same material used by any high quality hold manufacturer. Our main resin has a shore hardness of 75D, similar to that of a hardhat. We can also place a rubber backing on all our holds for extra grip on very featured walls.
All holds created by Black Swan feature embedded washers. These washers help spread the load from the bolt across the entire hold making them incredibly hard to crack from over tightening. You have to be very committed to breaking these holds; it won't be an easy task.
We will never sell a hold that is hard on a climbers hands. We are climbers ourselves and understand how important texture is. We want you to be able to climb all day on our holds, not cursing at your sore pads.
Every single one of our climbing holds are first tested by us on our own wall. After preliminary tests, we sell only to local gyms before providing our selection to other gyms. We will not sell any products that have had any problems whatsoever. This is how we know our holds we stand up to our expectations and level of quality.
