At the beginning…
The name of our company, VOLX, originates from a little town in the Lubéron region of France, well known for its sport crag, which, in the 80s and 90s was a meeting point for forward thinking and innovative sport climbers. These climbers took part in the development of the cliff which was used like a laboratory for climbing moves, as new moves were invented. VOLX soon became the birthplace of high level sport climbing boasting one of the first 8c grade climbs in France.
Founded in 1996, the company VOLX rapidly built a reputation for being one of the very first manufacturers of climbing holds.
Since then, we have added thousands of shapes to our offer, breaking new ground to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding climber, giving you the possibility to widen the range of your climbing moves. A natural way of life, purity of moves and design are still our most important values. We now boast more than 2400 models of climbing holds available in technical or close to the rock ranges, we have given particular attention to the texture and the shape of each hold so that you can really enjoy long training sessions.
… and today
Today VOLX makes more than 70% of its sales abroad. Our market is divided between supplying holds to climbing wall manufacturers, to distributors both in France and worldwide, to privately owned climbing gyms, to local councils, etc…
