Lapis Lazzuri Hangboard Review
This is a broad—32-inch—slab with long, curved ergonomic holds (think frowny-face shaped) that allow you to use the edges and slopers with your hands practically kissing … or spread clean out to shoulder width.
LAPIS LAZZURI ($89.95)
This is a broad—32-inch—slab with long, curved ergonomic holds (think frowny-face shaped) that allow you to use the edges and slopers with your hands practically kissing … or spread clean out to shoulder width. Being able to position your hands at varying widths guarantees that people of all statures, from Terminators to hobbits, can find a comfortable and natural grip width. What really makes the board shine, however, are two bolt-on modular holds, which attach on the outer regions of the surface. This Einstein move lets you customize a pair of grips, and puts your hands in a more “rock-like” position! The Lazzuri is also the only board that comes with a toothbrush.
BEEFS: No micro edges … wait, you can add those.
BEST FOR: All-around training.
IF ONLY IT HAD: Pinches and a desperate sloper.
