Some people say, "chalk is chalk." Not true. It’s important to know what’s in the chalk you’re breathing and putting on your hands. Depending on what’s in it (or not in it), chalk can absorb moisture and affect your skin and lungs differently.
A team of world-class geologists and chemists recently conducted independent tests on 5 of the most common chalks for rock climbing. The results were clear:
FrictionLabs chalk is the purest chalk out there.
WHAT IS ROCK CLIMBING CHALK?
Chalk is mined as Dolomite, a mixture of Magnesium Carbonate, Calcium Carbonate, and numerous other compounds.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FRICTIONLABS CHALK AND ALL OTHER CHALK?
Chalk up less. Have better grip. Climb Your Impossible.
Our chalk has no harmful drying agents or impurities. We've run the tests - you don't want to be breathing what's in traditional chalk.
TAKES CARE OF YOUR SKIN
Climbing is tough enough on your hands. Don't make it worse with low quality ingredients that destroy your skin.
All climbing chalks claim to be 100% Magnesium Carbonate. When you run the tests though, the truth is that they all have significant amounts of impurities, drying agents, heavy metals, and other fillers.
We’re the first to admit that our chalk isn’t 100% pure; it would be extremely expensive and impractical to make. But our chalk is by far the purest out there, meaning it will last longer, dry your hands better, and keep your lungs and skin healthier than anything else.
The results are clear: FrictionLabs engineers the cleanest chalk there is.
Whether you’re a new climber or a seasoned pro, if health and peak performance are important to you, you want FrictionLabs chalk.
