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, our 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!
it's chalk, it sticks
Title says it all. It's nice, and I like it, but it takes up more space than I expected in my chalk bag. Not a bad thing...just something to be aware of.
I had never used loose chalk before, and so when I first bought this after my friend told me about it, I was skeptical. But now, it's the only chalk I use, and I would definitely recommend it to others looking to buy reliable loose chalk.
I've had good chalk, bad chalk, smelly chalk, liquid chalk, block chalk and plenty in between. My search ended once I tried FrictionLabs. There could be comparable chalk out there for less, but I don't care to find it.
I am new to climbing so I ordered the Chunky Gorilla Grip chalk and have been nothing short of thoroughly impressed! The chalk stays put on your hands instead of transferring to the rock, is easy to manage in a chalk bag, and easily washes off in a sink! Much impressed!
My order got shipped the same day I ordered, and arrived incredible quickly. I have used chalks from other brands and the high performance chalk is by far the best one I have used
High Performance Chalk
Best check I have ever used
I’ve been climbing for over ten years and in that span of time, I haven’t found chalk that works nearly as well as what Friction Labs has got. Take my unsolicited beta and give this chalk a try — you owe it to yourself.
Is it really worth the money? I don't know but I do know that performance matters to me, so I'm willing to pay for the best. It seems to work as well or better than any chalk I've ever used.
Worth the loot.
Dank ass chalk for your sweaty parts! Doesn’t clump up on your hands, if you use it there... nice. Any word on demos in Chattanooga anytime soon? Slopers steal your chalk fast down here.
Worth the extra money compared to other chalk brands.
Stays on longer. Better friction.
This chalk is amazing. the highest quality chalk I have used. Friction labs is high quality.
I really didn't. I thought it was just a ploy - an annoyingly successful marketing campaign from some Colo-rad-bros that backed a generic product that everyone else was making. I didn't think it couldn't be that much better. How could chalk get any better? I was amongst the numerous disbelievers. I was coaxed into trying a friend's for a day in Maple last summer. Quartzite cobbles are hard to hold in the summer heat, especially the small, slopey cobbles in Box Canyon. I then returned to my then tried-and-true: Metolius Super Chalk. I now regard that as one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Every time my hand dipped into my chalk bag without Friction Labs, it was as if a dark, sweaty veil was being pulled over my hands. A veil that perhaps had been there my entire 17 years as a climber. They had seen the light; felt the power of impeccable friction - there was no going back. They say you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Luckily, buying Friction Labs is easier than getting an ex-girlfriend back, or whatever 'they' are referring to. I've seen Friction Labs chalk as an invaluable tool in my climbing ever since that fateful day. Do yourself a favor and buy some.
Don't overthink it, just buy it! Your hands will thank you later.
By far the nr.1 chalk. Everything else feels like cheap shit compared to this. Sticks to your hands much longer than the rest. Only problem is once you tried it, you’ll never use anything else.
Hands down the best chalk out there! The secret stuff liquid chalk is also amazing for drying out the hands real good on those hot greasy days!
I always thought that chalk was chalk until I tried Friction Labs. Bam Bam is basically my soulmate, and I can't imagine using anything else now!
Love this chalk.
Dipping your hands into a pool of frictionlabs chalk is a very satisfying experience. Where you expect the feeling or chalk, what you actually get is the feeling of silk. It coats the hands in a thin, uniform coat that reliably does its job and lasts long. Incredible stuff, plain and simple.
If the Sticky Bandits ever get out of prison, they'd be happy to know there's a chalk that'll live up to their standards. All three flavors work great at drying your hands and sticking you to holds, but it really is just personal preference how smooth or chunky you like. Sampling all three, I'd say I like the Dust for refilling chalk balls, and Bam Bam or Gotilla Grip for the gym pot. They are all the same though, just a little more OCDing to get the chunky ones crumbled. A+ rating on the formula. Mainly, the Gold product that's available from BD just leaves my skin in sub-optimal healing conditions. My skin feels normal after use with Friction Labs. They got me.
Love the super chunk, this chalk is next level [email protected]!
High Performance Chalk
Definitely recommend the Gorilla Grip chalk feels unlike anything I’ve used before. Sticks on to your hands like magic. And the monthly subscription is definitely worth it.
One less thing to remember. Chalk bags in every crag pack, gym bag, car door.
Love the secret stuff
Love not having to go grab the chalk and just getting that sweet sweet friction delivered to our door
I love your chalk. I use gorilla and unicorn and they both soothe my hands and help me send hard. Thanks!!
We went to Red Rocks last month and realized right before we left that we were out of chalk. No worries our Friction Labs delivery came just in time. Thanks for the helping me ascend Mr. Moran. Check @teslascender .
Hey Guys - the chalk itself is always awesome. Only complaint (very minor) is that the packs I have received in the past (ordering direct) come with next to no air in it and HUGE chunks. Almost a solid block. This was more on the unicorn dust side with a ton of air. So was the one ordered from Backcountry. Maybe a bad batch? Packing issue? Still a good product. Just wish I got the usual standard with the premium we pay for a premium product (as described). Other than that thanks guys!
I was a little skeptical about the cost of this chalk, but it is definitely worth every penny. I love it!! New favorite chalk, probably will never buy anything else
It's my new favorite chalk I've ever used!
I will never use any other chalk ever again. My hands have always sweat so much and it has made a huge difference in my climbing!
I am relatively new to the game. I get an amazing discount on a certain chalk brand because of where I work. But I tried the unicorn dust and paired it with the secret stuff and it makes for an amazing combo. I get far less peeling and my hands are way better off because of the combo. Strongly recommend
Love this chalk. Also doesn’t dry out my skin as much.
This is the best chalk I have used yet! I have used the unicorn chalk which is nice but I feel like I blow through a bag everyday. Where the gorilla lasts a lot longer at least a month climbing three days a week.
Friction Labs is simply the best chalk brand out there… Alongside the great design and packaging, the unicorn dust is perfect.
Unicorn dust is soo good! 5 star full on full!
Much crush, so gnar
I would never go back to using any other chalk but this. Works best with my hands and keeps them chalked as I send crazy stuff. Keep up the great work!!
This is the only chalk I will ever use! It is not only the best chalk money can buy, but also, it keeps your hands so dry that sometimes, I find myself washing my hands 4 times before I don't feel it on my skin anymore. Combine with secret stuff to make your hands like suction cups on the holds.
Once you go FrictionLabs, you never go back. By far the best chalk I've ever used - keeps your hands dry, doesn't get slimy.
Best chalk ever.
I’m very happy with my unicorn dust chalk and I’ll definitely be buying it again!
Best chalk ever
Use the unicorn dust chalk just after putting on Secret Stuff - an unbeatable combination!
it tastes great and is much smoother in my morning shakes than other brands. /s. Great chalk, lasts longer on your HANDS than other brands.
wanted to try out some new chalk, love it so far. The super chunky hasn't seemed to kick up as much dust out of my bag as other loose chalk and sticks to my fingers very well.
I have tried several brands of chalks over the years and in my opinion nothing compares to bam bam super chunky high performance chalk. The chalk stays on your hands longer and you don't have to reapply every time you want to work on a new problem. I have recommended this chalk to all my friends, who are now all loyal supporters of friction lab.
The pure chalk has good performance on kettlebell handles...
it was great! I have been using this for a year
I didn't want to believe it but this stuff really does work better, especially for warm weather climbing. I still use basic chalk for board sessions but for outdoor routes this is the new standard. Worth the cost? Depends how bad you want to send your project...
High Performance Chalk
Best chalk on the market!
I got my first Friction Labs Unicorn Dust for my birthday over the summer, and I am officially hooked. It's really soft, and coats my hands with a quick dip. I find that I end up using less chalk overall with Friction Labs products, which is ultimately better for me and better for the routes I climb. I have also tried Secret Stuff, which I really love in the summer when my hands get super sweaty. A little bit goes a long way!
I won’t use anything else.
Bam Bam is super pure and covers my hands very well. I have been especially impressed with how long it lasts on my fingers. It gives me the confidence to push harder especially on the last couple of moves of each climb!
Stays drier and lasts longer than other chalk brands. Had to get past the habit of dipping my hands into the chalk bucket all the time!
It was great chalk that can quickly. Highly recommended
Sending all my rig's and checking boxes since! - F.L. Lifer
Eversince I started using FrictionLabs Unicorn Dust my climbing life had forever changed. Thanks FrictionLabs you're the best!
Hands down, the best chalk on the market!
I don't buy anything else. This stuff is the shizz. :-)
unicorn dust, made up of the ashes of unicorns. left my hands dry and the desert sun. sending the climbs of my nightmares with ease putting my rest at ease. highly recommend.
Awesome chalk for hanging onto the barbell, pull-up bar, kettlebell, dumbbell, battle rope, etc.!!!!! Fantastic products, won't go back to the other stuff!
I like unicorn dust it’s the best chalk
Unicorn Dust chalk performs far better for me than anything else I've ever tried. It's very soft on my skin, but lasts longer than any other that I've used. Highly recommended!
Chalk good, sweat bad.
I really like the texture and feel compared to other brands!
Love it super easy and fast
Best chalk for climbing.
High Performance Chalk
Have you ever climbed in approach shoes or climbing boots? And then you switched to your high performance climbing shoes? Here you go; that's the same difference like using "regular" chalk and then switching to Friction Lab's chalk! It is a best improvement in climbing "equipment" directly influencing climbers performance since "sticky rubber" shoes.
I just started using the BAM BAM - amazing, keeps my hands super dry and use far less than normal
I'm a boulderer and like to bathe my paws in chalk whenever I'm about to get on the wall so I always need chalk all the time. That 5oz bag a month is more than enough and it's only like 12 bucks. Definitely worth it, in comparison to the normal block chalks I used to go through like candy.
without friction labs chalk, i could only campus v2's at my gym. now that i have my own bag of frictionlabs bambam, i can campus v3's!!!
This chalk goes on dry and lasts longer than anything else I've tried. I used to chalk after every climb; with the Unicorn Dust I dip in once every 3-4 routes. I also find that it doesn't suck the moisture out of my skin like other chalks I've used. My climbing partners love it, too, they were dipping into my chalk bag until I forced them to get their own!
Order came in pretty quickly. This stuff is super sticky guys. Best chalk I've used. Definitely going to be using this stuff from now on.
Outstanding quality as usual
This chalk is great! Never going back to the old cheap chalk. Felt like glue on my hands. No slippage
