Friction Labs chalk
- Our Price
- From £2.50
Friction Labs team are long-time climbers and scientists who realized that all the chalk out there was just not what they wanted. It just didn't make sense that we are obsessing over the rubber and fit of our shoes but totally ignoring the quality of the stuff we put on our hands for grip. They decided to use science to engineer the perfect chalk for rock climbing.
The team here at the Works has been using this for a while now and simply put if you have greasy hands / find that your skins peels easily / are sensitive to other chalk brands - this stuff will make a difference.
If you don't have to worry about the above and don't care what is on your hands then this is not for you.
It is more expensive but in general we have found we don't use as much (don't need too) and it makes our skin less sensitive and so lasts longer when climbing (Win).

From FrictionLabs website:
What makes your chalk better? Isn’t all chalk pretty much the same?
Before we showed up on the scene, all chalk was pretty much the same: bad. So we did our research and started engineering a far more pure form of Magnesium Carbonate. We also developed three unique blends to meet the needs of different rock climbers, because everyone has their own texture preference. Other chalk has fillers that don’t absorb moisture, which gets in the way of your skin and the hold. You wouldn't step onto a climb with mud on your shoes...so why would you get on a hold with fillers on your hands?
This chalk is crazy good. What’s in it? Am I cheating by using it?
We actually think it's kind of cheating to use the stuff with drying agents and other crap in there. Our chalk is lab grade Magnesium Carbonate, so it's chemically more pure than ordinary chalk. Other chalk has fillers that don't absorb moisture, resulting in extra material between you and the hold. These fillers prevent you from having as much friction as possible. That's also why it's so much better at keeping your hands dry and staying on them longer. Simpler, higher quality, better
Which blend is right for me?
No matter which blend you go with, it's going to be much better than the garbage you've been putting on your hands. Stickier, longer lasting, and nicer on your skin.
Unicorn Dust: The stickiest of the icky. This magical blend is what dreams are made of. Unicorn Dust is our finest blend with marble sized nuggets to provide texture. Delicate and powerful, Unicorn Dust is in a class of it's own.
Gorilla Grip: the best of both worlds with a 50/50 balance between chunks and powder. This blend consists of nuggets floating in a fine white powder.
Bam Bam: Our chunkiest blend, for the thick-grip aficionado. Bam-bam is preferred by those who want to have something to grab onto when they reach into their bag. This blend contains nuggets ranging from grape to golf ball sized floating in a fine white powder
