Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live. Since 1957, their innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas.
Black Diamond Eco Chalk
ECO Gold is made from pure magnesium carbonate, which is the by-product of the desalination process, as opposed to being mined from the earth like typical climbing chalk, making it purer and eco-friendlier than other chalk products on the market. In other words, ECO Gold is as easy on the environment as it is on your hands. Plus, thanks to its pure form, this chalk is extra absorbent, offering superior drying power and effectively enhancing your grip.
