With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

The Thing - A tool designed to focus on training and progressing on Slopers.

Designed by Steven Chadwick, Developed by KONG Climbing Ltd, the Thing is a training tool like no other! Unlike most climbing training tools which focus on building up strength on crimps, the thing is designed to train and develop your sloper technique.

'The Thing' is a unique climbing training tool designed to improve your technique on sloper grips. Its ergonomic design and textured surface provide a challenging and effective training experience, helping you develop stronger fingers and improved grip strength.

Its compact design makes it easy to take with you wherever you go, so you can train anytime, anywhere. With regular use, 'The Thing' will help you develop stronger fingers, improved grip strength, and better technique, all essential skills for tackling even the toughest sloper routes.

In addition to its use as a climbing training tool, 'The Thing' is also an excellent tool for rehab and injury prevention. Its sloper grips provide a low-impact way to strengthen the muscles and tendons in the hands, wrists, and forearms, making it a great option for those looking to recover from hand or wrist injuries.

It is also a great tool for preventing injuries by helping to build up the muscles and tendons in these areas, making them more resilient to the stresses of climbing. So whether you're looking to improve your climbing technique, rehab from an injury, or prevent future injuries, 'The Thing' is the perfect tool for the job.

So why wait? Get 'The Thing' today and start climbing to new heights!
