Our story began on a mission to capture the perfect sunrise photo of a trad climb in Slovenia. From that moment on, we knew we had something special. We bonded over our love for the sport and started embarking on various projects together, including building a gym in the attic that became the catalyst for all our future endeavors. We’re proud of the small projects we’ve done, like jumping over a car on skis and building a 30m slide with a jump at the end. There were a lot more of them, some more stupid than others. If you want to check them out, you can do that on our YouTube channel.
But our biggest and most challenging project to date was the creation of the world’s first floating climbing wall. And to make things more interesting we set it up on a river. We organized a climbing competition on it. Since then the competition became a tradition where climbers from all over Slovenia come and try some deep water solo bouldering. Looking back, we’re still amazed that we managed to build something so magnificent and fun.
The pandemic hit us all hard, and we were no exception. Our big projects came to a halt, and we found ourselves spending more time in our attic gym than ever before. But we didn’t let that dampen our spirits. Instead, we focused on training and staying active.
As we spent more time training, the idea for the GRAVITYboard began to take shape. The decision was made, we wanted to create our own hangboard. The main goal was to create something different from everything else on the market. The hangboard needed to be not only functional but also aesthetic, something that would look great in any climber’s home gym or apartment.
We spent countless hours designing and prototyping, ensuring every detail was right. We wanted to create a hangboard that would challenge climbers of all levels and help them improve their strength and endurance. After months of hard work and dedication, the GRAVITYboard PRO was born. Soon after the GRAVITYstick and GRAVITYboard LITE followed and expanded our little wooden family.
We believe that climbing is more than just a sport; it’s a way of life. It’s about pushing your limits, testing your strength and endurance, and experiencing the thrill of the climb. At DUDES vs. GRAVITY, we’re dedicated to helping others experience that same feeling of accomplishment and joy that we do every time we reach the summit.
Our mission is to create innovative climbing gear that enhances your experience and helps you achieve your goals. We’re excited to share our passion with you and help you reach new heights in your climbing journey. Join us in our quest to conquer GRAVITY and achieve your dreams.
