Huge versatility in a compact package. The Pretzel is a carefully designed training tool for the space-constrained climber. Precisely carved from a single block of solid wood, it provides over 98 different grips within a 18cm (face to face) hexagon. You can toss The Pretzel in your crag bag for a lightweight warmup option at the crag, or mount it at home.
Holds range from 10mm crimps up to 40mm pockets with over 30 pinches and a jug on the top. Using the two included 1 meter cords and 12KN carabiners, the Pretzel can be mounted in four main different ways: flat slot, sloped slot, juggy slot and pinch training. The Pretzel can be mounted as a hangboard on any branch, pull-up bar, and other solid fixture, or used to lift weights!
A fun metric we came up with for our hangboards is $/hold. When you buy a Pretzel Hangboard, you are spending $1.02 per way you can hold it. There are no other hangboards that come even close to this cost effectiveness!

The versatility of this hangboard is incredible! There is no other hangboard as portable as this with as many options. You can train at home or at the crag to build finger strength for whatever the project is at the time. Four finger, two finger, monos at 15 - 35 mm depths, many other techniques to use this hangboard to its fullest extent. I picked up two from Breadhouse to offer as a prize for our homewall climbing comp (IG: @the.dawg.wall; after testing them myself of course) and the 1st place climber was TOO STOKED about these... the rest of the competitors were not so happy these were gone from the prize draw first pick!
So far, its great! I like the variety of holds you can choose, which allows you to stimulate your muscles in many different ways. It's also rad that you can hang weights below it and train pinch strength. I hang my pretzels off my mounted hangboard at home because I like it more now. Good stuff!
Amazing product, so many diferent rung, pocket and pinch option. I've been training for couple weeks now on it, and my fingering are thanking me for it. Can't wait to bring to the crag next when the season start.
Great product and clever design. I use them everyday!
Whether you want a pump at home or a quick and easy warm up at the crag, the pretzels are right for you. Portable and versatile. They've got tons of different holds of a huge range off difficulty, making them perfect for beginner climbers as well as the most seasoned of vets. 10/10 would recommend.
