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.

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. 

↤ 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.
