Petzl's New Crash Pads
See all the features of Petzl's bouldering pads coming out this summer. Theres three sizes, a sit-start pad, the usual sized pad and a highball style pad.
Justin Roth (of theStoneMind.com) explains all the features and design intentions. It seems that Petzl tried to solve EVERY problem that a bouldering pad has ever faced.
You can decide if the pads are the perfect solution or totally over-engineered.
Oh, and Beau Kahler also makes a guest appearance in modeling the size and fit of the pads.
