The Knock at Burbage, Big Air at Stanage, Careless Torque… When you start to dream big, you need a bouldering pad that can keep up.

Project is HUGE. We can’t emphasise enough how huge it is. 

At 15 cm thick with over 2 square metres of landing area, Project is one of the fattest, most substantial foam bouldering pads on the market - ideal for highballing. 

Project is made from 3 layers of foam. The 11cm open cell core absorbs the impact of your fall, with 2 cm closed cell on the top and bottom to distribute weight across the landing space and protect against rocks underneath. Project closes using a hinge fold, which prolongs the life of your foam and makes it easier to store.  

The foam lives in an abrasion resistant 1100 denier Cordura shell, sewn and bar-tacked by Dom and the gang in our UK factory. 

Big pads are heavy, so Project features a comfortable thermoformed backpack system with hip fins, to spread the load across your torso. When you arrive at the boulder, a protective cover pulls out of the pocket to keep the back system clean. 

In addition to stuffing kit inside your crash pad, you’ve got a large flat pocket on the Project for stashing your guidebook, snacks, lucky beanie, or anything else you may need for a day working on your project. 


We fall off things a lot, so we make crash pads that can take a lot of falls. Our foam is crosslinked – a process which bonds molecules in the foam that would not usually link together to make it much stronger and reduce break down from repeated compressions. This makes our foam more shock absorbent and durable than other foams on the market.

UKC Review the New Range of Bouldering Pads

Whilst the debate between taco vs. hinge is undoubtedly a personal one, the Origin tends to be the pad we reach for first as we think it's the best all-rounder.
