This slim launch pad boulder mat has been designed to be used in conjunction with a larger mat for sit starts or to protect traverses and cover outlying rocks.

Gambit can be carried by itself using the single grab handle or inside a larger mat such the Mujo or Project as well as many other pads on the market.

Constructed using 2 cm thick closed cell foam, Gambit can be used by itself on ground traverses where you just don't want, or need, to carry your main pad. 

Gambit does not offer the same degree of impact protection as a full size mat, please climb sensibly and accept its limitations. Remember climbing can be a dangerous sport!

The rounded corners of Gambit reduce wear points which is beneficial in the long term. Made right here in our own workshop we are in total control of every element, from the fabric to the seams to the thread holding it together.

The shell uses the same fabric as our Phud; 600d PU coated UK woven polyester fabric, making it highly durable.
