The perfect wood for maximizing grip-strength gains.

Ash wood is the perfect combination of soft and grippy, allowing you to train harder and hurt less. Once you've used one, you'll wonder why anyone makes hangboards out of anything else.

Why is Ash wood so important?

Plastics are too rough.

Ask anyone who has done extensive hangboard training - plastic hangboards will shred the pads right off your fingers. For long, effective training sessions the soft texture of wood is the only way to go. Save your fingers for climbing. 

Some woods are too slick.

Certain, cheaper, woods like poplar/tulipwood have a very tight grain, which give them a comparatively slippery texture. This reduction in friction means that you need to either reduce the roundover (resulting in sharp, uncomfortable edges), or increase the depth of the hold (resulting in less effective training). 

Ash wood is just right.

Ash wood has a more open grain, which gives it the soft, comfortable feeling of wood with a grippy texture perfect for hangboard training. It allows us to incorporate a comfortable 1/4" roundover on each ledge without compromising training effectiveness. It also just happens to look incredible. 

When we say handmade...

We truly mean that we make them by hand, ourselves. Lyons Edge is owned and operated by three friends: Kenton Wickersham, Ryan Cathcart and Daniel Lyons (he had the coolest last name, so he got the namesake). When you get your hangboard it will be made with our hands, out of a solid piece of Ash wood, crafted for a lifetime of getting you prepared for your next climbing milestone.

↤ The grooves go ALL the way across ↦

You've probably noticed that our hangboards don't have the common "cheese grater" design of other hangboards. Other companies seem to want to impress you with a long list of included holds, but all those "extra holds" are really just adding unnecessary limitations. It adds nothing to your training to have a specific "3-finger pocket" when you can simply use 3 fingers in any position on any rung. By not adding those unnecessary finger width restrictions on our hangboards, we actually enable the maximum number of possible holds.

"I have been a climber for roughly 1 year and I find this hangboard to be a perfect fit for me. As a v5-6 climber, the middle hang is very challenging for me and I can hang for roughly 3-7 seconds. I cannot hang at all on the bottom one yet. Of course there is the top which I can adjust to any length I want. This hangboard will be very useful for me in the future. The hangboard itself is very good quality. I have not found any flaws about it yet. I bought this during the CoVID 19 pandemic and its nice to hang on my pull up bar. I did not want one to screw into my wall."

    I live in an apartment where I can't drill anything into the wall and I really don't want to retrofit my pull-up bar so this hangboard works perfectly for me. It's easy to set up and put away so that I can continue to use my pull-up bar normally. The only downside is that I can't use the bottom rung without retying the knot shorter, otherwise my knee hits the floor.

    This hangboard is awesome to hang off a pull up bar, or strap onto my pack, and hang off a tree in a park! I like the aesthetic and simplicity of the design. The cord is placed well so that it doesn't lean forwards or backwards as your body shifts underneath it. Would definitely recommend!

    "Buid quality is great! It is one piece of solid wood. Very versatile and is easy to mount on a door frame. The edges are just enough rounded and the wood is just smooth enough so that it is comfy but not too slippery. I would recommend this handboard. The look is also great!"

    The Benefits of Hangboard Training

    Save money at the gym.

    Have you ever spent $25 to get into the climbing gym, or spent the day driving to the mountains, only to get 3 climbs in and be completely exhausted? Hangboard training will build up your climbing endurance & grip strength at home, which means you can utilize precious wall time to perfect your technique & send new routes.

    See measurable improvement.

    Is every 5.11 created equal? Probably not. Which means it can be hard to tell exactly how much progress you’re making. With Hangboard training, you can know for sure that last week you were able to hang for 4 seconds on the shallow hold, and this week you’ve made it to 12 seconds. Watch your hang time increase, then see the effects of that progress on the climb.

    Become a better climber, fast!

    There’s no doubt about it, grip strength is one of the biggest limiting factors in your climbing ability. Systematic, targeted training of your grip will accelerate your ability at the gym and in the mountains like you wouldn’t believe. How long are you willing to be stuck at your current difficulty rating? Isn’t it time to get to the next level?

    Can't hold on through the overhang? Unable to utilize small holds and slopers?

    Your lack of grip strength is holding you back.

    Nothing affects your climbing ability as much as your grip strength. Technique is hugely important, but no amount of technique can make up for a lack of strength.
