Ibex is a climbing company based in Greece shaping climbing holds for climbing walls around the world.
For the last 10 years IBEX is growing, evolving and getting better in many fields. We have managed to offer you the best quality of climbing holds by using the best materials available both in Polyester (PE) and Polyurethane (PU). We take holds manufacture very seriously that’s why in our range you will find some of the best dual texture holds of the industry. Furthermore we apply safety standards, anatomically correct design, smooth texture to protect your skin and many other cool features on every hold we produce. As Dario’s Stefanou (our shaper) work is admirable by many, we are often asked to design holds for other brands. After shaping more than 2500 unique shapes IBEX can offer you the most suitable hold for your needs.
The main characteristic of “Nisyros”, our best-selling range, is that the holds are designed in a way that makes their usage kind of predictable. A climber is able to know, while being on the matts, what to expect and how positive or not the holds are. Also, most of our holds so far had one main use, they are either a jug or a sloper, or any type of grip but you wouldn’t easily have both a jug and a pinch in the same hold. They are handy tools for route setters that were designed in a very strict manner that doesn’t allow the climber to create his own BETA.
That’s not the case at all with our newest line, “BETA” holds are multipurpose, they are playful, you flip them around and you get a different grip. We still had to obey in some of our ibex rules. The potential footholds on all designs are shaped in a way that forces specific areas to be used as footholds. Again we tried to add as many screws to our holds without making design sacrifices so that the holds can be used both as screw-ons. The surrounding surfaces most times thins out gradually. The screw holes are sanded in order to create a curve instead of a sharp edge and gripping area. The holds are made according to EN12572-3. Positive, playful and fun. We are thrilled to present to you “BETA”!
