Kong Holds All Brands

Our Brands

Sparked in Trondheim, Norway, an Australian, a Nordlending and a Trønder, (with a dash of Stavanger in there also), we're having a well-deserved coffee break from their weekly route setting session; impatient creativity, and ambition to spice up their boulder problems inspired a conversation leading up to the launch of Arctic Grips.

Aiming to be a local, yet global provider of handcrafted, inspiring new school climbing holds, we are excited to see the launch of our little company fitting timely into the boasting movement of the climbing community both locally and abroad.

Using our years of experience as both route setters and climbers, with a slightly odd and mixed background from carpentry, bike repair and audio/visual arts, we hope to meet the demand for progressive and inspiring new climbing holds. Keeping our northern roots alive whilst converting our inspirations, lead by the spectacularism of nature, into indoor climbing holds can -and should be a daunting task- and we do it in awe.

Hong Kong-based InCurvo uses creative minds from around the world to create clean, comfortable and interesting shapes. Their holds currently span 4 collections, Wild, Geom, Free and Wave, with more to follow in 2021. Incurvo is a brand launched by a team of enthusiast entrepreneurs and industry experts, passionate about climbing.
Dynamic climbing moves have inspired the brand name. Indeed, when such a dynamic move is performed, the body gets curved in order to absorb the energy of the move.
Independently of their origin, we have five key pillars for our shapes: directionality, functionality, aesthetics, variety and comfort.

Incurvo’s shapes are part of themed collections. Each collection has a unique feel, and we love to unveil regularly new collections that will serve your purpose.

Agripp was founded by Philippe Ceulemans who started shaping the first climbing holds in 1991 in Brussels in the workshop of his grandfather who was a sculptor. Our passion for holds and routesetting led us to organise the first bouldering competitions in Belgium at the end of the 90's in our climbing gym Roc'House.

Initially we remained close to our roots with the use of clay masters (traditional) until 2017. Nowadays, we have embraced the modern era and carve from PU foam that corresponds to the current standard and allows us to achieve better shapes quicker and with better detail.
Recently we have introduced a full range of dual-texture which we hope will offer routesetters even more choice and the ability to set more precise and technical movements.
