Dual Texture

Rockcity Basic Dual Texture Macros offering unrivalled setting opportunities for the most difficult of competition problems. Designed exclusively for the new IFSC Official Sport Equipment standard for macros and now for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The black part of each Macro is completely gloss smooth and is virtually impossible to use as a hand or foothold. The coloured part has texture so the route setter can dictate exactly how this shape will be used in the competition, no matter how hard the competitor tries to fight it. If you want a gold medal, you are going to have to earn it!

Made in the EU from fibreglass construction with metal inserts to reinforce the screw holes. Then they treated to a black gloss and coloured textured part to make alternative uses of the shapes impossible.
The majority of the work and technical engineering is in the rest of these macro holds. This part creates no edge where the macro joins the climbing wall, so the climber is forced to use the part of the hold that the route setters want to insist the climber has to.
This is even more useless when the macro is in dual texture. Our signature ‘Black Ice’ has become a regular feature of World Cups and National Team training camps.
