Isn’t all chalk the same?
All chalk brands 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. Friction Labs is the first to admit that their chalk isn’t 100% pure; it would be extremely expensive and impractical to make. But their chalk has a staying power that can’t be beat, meaning you can chalk up less, perform at your best and keep your hands healthy and strong.
If I’m getting Friction Labs’ loose chalk, which texture/blend is right for me?
It’s really just a matter of personal texture preference. If you’re used to block chalk, try Bam Bam(super chunky) or Gorilla Grip(chunky). If you like a smooth texture, try Unicorn Dust(fine). All three provide the same premium sticking power. Friction Lab’s most popular blend is Gorilla Grip.
How do I know how much I need?
This mostly depends on your climbing frequency and the conditions where you climb. On average, a 1-2x per week climber can probably get by with 2.5oz in a month. 3-4x per week needs 5oz. and 5-7x per week needs 7.5oz. But be prepared – as soon as you’re deadbeat, greedy friends try it and their hands are going to be in your chalk bag constantly, so you might need more than you think.
Why does it cost more?
Friction Labs refuse to use the same old chalk from the same old factories. #chalkmatters Friction Labs is responsible to import the highest quality raw materials from around the world and treat time at their facilities in Denver, Colorado, using a proprietary process. Their chalk is proudly made in the USA and you’ll feel the difference as soon as you get it on your hands.
Designed to help you consistently climb at your limit, FrictionLabs chalk is made for climbers, by climbers.
This is not the same old white-labeled generic chalk climbers are used to. Responsibly refined in Denver, CO USA and stripped of all unnecessary fillers, FrictionLabs chalk gives you unrivaled moisture absorption and skin health. Like a high performance climbing shoe, FrictionLabs’ high purity Magnesium Carbonate makes a single application far more efficient, giving you the extra edge to focus on sending not slipping.
#chalkmatters, and we’ve helped thousands of climbers, from new climbers to FrictionLabs Pros finally find a chalk they can rely on, on every move. Never chalk up mid-crux again!
