Who is FrictionLabs?
We are a group of athletes and scientists who realized that all the chalk out there was just awful - both for performance and for health. As we tested and developed our products, the reaction we got when people tried it was amazing, so we decided to start a business around the idea that Chalk Matters. We’re committed to doing everything we can to bring peak performance to every athlete who benefits from better grip.
Isn’t all chalk the same?
All chalk brands claim to be 100% Magnesium Carbonate. When you run the tests though, the truth is that they all have significant amounts of impurities, drying agents, heavy metals, and other fillers. We’re the first to admit that our chalk isn’t 100% pure; it would be extremely expensive and impractical to make. But our chalk is by far the purest out there, meaning it will last longer, dry your hands better, and keep your lungs and skin healthier than anything else you've been using.
Why does it cost more?
Our chalk goes through a proprietary process to remove unhealthy fillers common in other brands of chalk. Most climbers report re-chalking about half as often when using FrictionLabs since it lasts so much longer.
Is FrictionLabs a specialty product meant only for elite athletes?
Is organic food only for Olympians? This is the best, safest, and healthiest chalk on the market, making it the responsible choice for every person's health and performance. FrictionLabs chalk is the sensible standard, and thankfully more and more athletes of all experience levels are making the change every day.
