Lafayette, CO (March 29, 2021)eGrips, manufacturers of the most artistic climbing hold designs, is proud to introduce its newest collection for indoor climbing, the Khans. Created by professional climber, route setter and shaper, Roy Quanstrom, the Khans are the latest addition to the growing eGrips family and are underscored by their fresh lines, artistic touches, and perfectly controlled shapes.

Quanstrom sought to channel the unique experience of a route unlike anything he’d ever climbed, drawing inspiration for the Kahns Collection from the problem Jungle Book (V11 – Cresciano, Switzerland) and returned to the shape of the rock, the movement between the holds, and the grips a climber has to grapple before success.

With sizes ranging from size 3 crimps to size 7 mega jugs, bolt & woodscrew options, and everything from incut to sloping shapes, Khans add a modern and aesthetic touch to any route you create.


“I’m not the most powerful, although I do love to throw at things. I’m not the most technical, although I love to be humbled. If I had to describe my strength it would be control. Something between technical and powerful. These shapes will demand this aspect of control out of users. These are holds that you can’t just jump to and simultaneously one cannot just ‘do the move better’ to succeed,”
 said Quanstrom.The polyurethane material is incredibly strong and resilient to any cracking, chipping or breaking that may be found in polyester resin holds or less quality polyurethane lines, which makes eGrips a top choice for those who consider strength, friction, durability, along with a high quality of design.
