HOLDZ® was founded in 2000 by Steve Goodair. Steve has worked at the forefront of climbing hold design and manufacture for the past 17 years and he has carved holds for many of the top climbing wall manufacturers such as DR climbing walls, Bendcrete, French Rock and King Kong Climbing Walls and Rockwerx. In addition to designing and carving holds, Steve spent five years travelling worldwide designing, making and installing many different types of bespoke climbing walls having set thousands of indoor routes on all types of climbing wall using many different types of bolt on hold. Steve was uninspired by the range and quality of the holds available on the market. He therefore decided to create his own range of holds which were more realistic to an ‘outdoor’ experience of climbing, he did this by improving on the design and texture of the holds making you think about how to use them. He works closely with some of the top route setters in the country and incorporates their ideas and needs into his range. HOLDZ® were the first company in the UK to use PU resin and make hollow backed holds as well as dual texture holds.
