Fjällsport Open!

We are a really proud to be sponsoring the outdoor bouldering event Fjällsport Open this weekend!

It’s an outdoor social get-together (or competition if you prefer) on a secret location that Padde on Fjällsport has been working hard to make climbable again after many years in the hidden.

Padde

Some months ago I had the chance to visit the area to test the problems and I can tell you it’s nice. There is something for everybody.

I cut my finger on one of the first problems I climbed there so most of them are new to me as well. Guess on what problem when you see the topo :)

See you on Sunday!

Boulder brush updates

We are just done producing another batch of Bamboo boulder brushes!

We’ve made some improvements since the first version. Generally we avoid using version numbers for our products as we see it more as they evolve naturally during time.

To clarify we’ll describe the updates that the Bamboo boulder brush has gotten.

As you can see it’s the same brush and bristle with minor improvements. The current version is the more rounded one.
It's rounded! We got some feedback that the edge of the brush sometimes hit the rock when brushing. We fixed it by grinding the four corners off.

We've made the edges a bit softer to hold by sanding them of a bit. They also fit easier to a smaller chalk bag now.

That’s all for now and don’t hesitate to write to us if you have ideas!

Sten who?

Sten is a climbing brand based in Gothenburg. It started in 2013 when we released our first product – the Bamboo brush – which found it’s way to retailers and users.

We believe that the closer relations you make with factories, retailers and customers, the better products. We strive to make everything minimalistic (including life in general but that’s another story) and smart. We believe that’s better for you when using the products, the environment for saving resources and for us using less materials when producing.

Sten doesn’t own any factories. Instead we make samples, product development and limited series ourselves. Then we develop those ideas and visions together with the pros to make the products. Then we continue to refine the products. Every day – step by step.

We try to be open so if you have any questions, feedback or ideas please write to us. You find the contact information on the information page.
