Climbing and bouldering have established themselves as recreational sports suitable for the masses.
The USA plays a leading role in this sport. The number of people who participate in sport climbing, which includes indoor and outdoor climbing, accounts for 1.6 percent of the American population, according to a report by the Outdoor Foundation, a non-profit organization. That’s about 5 million people out of the U.S.’s 314 million populations.
According to the German Alpine Association, there are around 500,000 sport climbers and boulderers in Germany, with a continuing upward trend.
COVID-19 has had an enormous impact on our everyday lives. After being subjected to major lockdowns, many climbing and bouldering halls have reopened, with the inclusion of safety rules.
However, a clear strategy of the brands that serve this market is the focus on the use of sustainable materials and ecological and sustainable production.
Some of the performance requirements are 4-way stretch, with properties that are highly elastic, abrasion resistant, thermal regulating, anti-odor, highly breathable and lightweight.
