  • The Zlagboard is just a great innovation that effectvely will improve dead hang training. You simply down load the Zlagboard App and put your smart phone on top. Once starting hanging, there is a mechanism in the board, that gives the phone a gentle move when you put weight on the grips. The phone sensors are activated by this movement and therefore release the timer. On the one hand, the Zlagboard is an individual training device, and on the other hand a board for group competitions: During the Gijon World Championship, Alex Megos set a new record which later only has been beaten by Ramonet Puigblanque. The #3 in the world wide contest is the last WC winner Stefano Ghisolfi. So if you want to climb as hard as they do, it is simply to start training on your Zlagboard until you can hang for two minutes. The linear, simple design makes the board an attractive piece of furniture. It is made of pinewood, a native tree of the Dolomites which is called Alder. The Zlagboard is really so nice looking so it just might be good timing to change your ugly old-school board and start training seriously. We will come back with a full review. The price is 230 Euros and here you have some more info.
