Megagrip by Vibram


Vibram in occasione dell’evento sarà presente con il progetto SOLE FACTOR.

I primi fortunati che si recheranno al Truck Vibram avranno l’opportunità di trasformare le proprie calzature da avvicinamento dotandole di una suola Vibram Megagrip progettata specificatamente per i climber: all’interno del Truck i calzolai eseguiranno in diretta le sofisticate lavorazioni di risuolatura delle scarpe*.

MEGAGRIP è la mescola Vibram dall’ottimo grip su roccia, sia asciutta che bagnata: pensata per raggiungere le falesie o l’attacco delle vie, su passaggi tecnici, pericolosi, scivolosi e brevi passaggi di arrampicata e disarrampicata.

Vibram Truck sarà operativo in questi orari:
Venerdì 19 dalle 13:00 alle 22:00
Sabato 20 dalle 13:00 alle 22:00
Domenica 21 dalle 9:00 alle 13:00

*Verranno effettuate un massimo di 20 risuolature al giorno esclusivamente di scarpe da avvicinamento, il personale Vibram si riserva di accettare/non accettare le scarpe.


Presso lo stand Vibram sarà posizionata una rampa in roccia granito bagnata su cui effettuare i test delle calzature da avvicinamento (La Sportiva TX) che montano mescola Vibram Megagrip.

Per tutta la durata dell’evento ci sarà un tecnico-promoter qualificato Vibram che, attraverso la rampa test, avrà modo di spiegare tecnicamente la performance della tecnologia e di rispondere alle domande.


Boulder: sulla parete boulder appoggiata sarà possibile cimentarsi in diversi passaggi di aderenza utilizzando scarpe con suola Vibram Megagrip.

Rope: tre tiri di difficoltà crescente da chiudere senza utilizzare le scarpette bensì indossando le scarpe di avvicinamento con suola Vibram Megagrip.

Chi sarà in grado di raggiungere la catena potrà “raccogliere” un ticket da consegnare presso il Truck per ricevere un premio.

DocRock is born from the constant desire for challenge.
Thirty years of continuous research of my limits led me to look for products that meet the needs of climbers.

Ultra grip magnesite, a range of carabiners and exclusive quickdraws, waterproof crags and mountains backpacks, all necessary for spiking and enriching this sport, accessories of various kinds for climbers.

The distribution of the best outlets on the market and the creation of certified facilities with the possibility of annual contracts for route settings are services that I can offer you thanks to my experience – Alberto Gnerro


Flathold was born of the encounter between an international route setter and a visual arts student, whose first experience together dates back to 2008.

A common goal: to create and develop shapes and grips, to fashion the foam so as to approach the feelings one gets on a natural line.

Testing gravity on the grips; imagining the movement possibilities they can offer on a wall; feeling the friction point. Beyond their basic function, the goal is to make the holds aesthetic. A random detail on the sculpture can be what gives harmony to the shape. «Sometimes you know in advance that you will want to make a crimp; after giving a function to the hold, the goal is to try to go a little further than simply offering grip, to give the shape life».

Inspiration starts as trial and error. The sculptor’s work that gives life to the different series draws from nature, without attempting to simply copy it. « You start a shape and you let yourself be guided. This is where the random aspect expresses itself in a way that could be described as similar to nature».

These two very different temperaments are what make up the essence of Flathold: friendship and collaboration in a project driven by a constant thirst for innovation.
