Backcountry x So Ill All Chalk No Action Hangboard
$86.21 (25% off, was $114.95)
This asymmetrically designed hangboard is laid out such that your hands are always the same distance apart. You’ll notice that the lowest level of the hangboard has two sets of crimps and that the four finger pocket crimp (the open-backed one) is always on the left side, whereas the closed-backed slot is on the right. The idea? You’ll be training with your hands the same distance apart (roughly shoulder-distance) regardless of whether you’re using pockets or crimps.
