Entralpi | Make Your Hangboard Smart

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Entralpi transforms any simple environment into your perfect training ground. It measures the lifted force on any hangboard. We built Entralpi with a specific goal in mind: climbing harder without getting injured.  

No need to get pulleys or added weights: intensity adapts to you. From the pulls on the tiniest of holds to the freaky one finger pull up, Entralpi easily quantifies your progression. 

Entralpi is there for you to fulfill your creativity, have fun, and get strong wherever you are.  

Entralpi has been part of research collaboration from the start and base its workouts on peer-reviewed research. 

 Using these statistics, you will have the right tool to identify your strengths and weaknesses compared to others climbing the same grade as you. 

Share your data and progression with your coach. A shareable profile allows the coach to assess the progress of your climbing team.

Entralpi has been used in clinics for a few years already. Doctors are currently working on using your finger profile to assess the risk of injuries.

Our history

Félix is obsessed with climbing and has tried extensive ways to train. He previously tried various systems to measure strength on hangboards, but was frustrated with his limited improvement and the setup hassle. He developed his first instrumented hangboard in 2013. Positive feedback from early users, researchers, and elite athletes convinced him to found Entralpi.

Why Kickstarter

We believe democratizing instrumented hangboards will revolutionize climbing and training. Local users have seen quantifiable gains and have seen their training evolve. We need to reach our Kickstarter goal to launch the device’s mass production. This approach was chosen to keep our device cost low and accessible to the climbing community.

Who has built Entralpi

Entralpi is built by climbers for climbers.

PS. We are on the lookout for talents. Shoot us an email :)

Current state of the project

Several Entralpi units have already been distributed in North America and Europe.

  • 11 units available in climbing gyms
  • 5 units used by healthcare professionals
  • 19 beta units distributed to athletes

These users routinely use the web application and the data server to log their assessments and trainings. The feedback and ideas of this community enable us to provide new software features on each stable release.

Next steps

This Kickstarter campaign is essential to launch the mass production of the device. These are the remaining steps and approximate schedule between the campaign and the delivery of the devices to the backers.

Entralpi will keep the backers informed of the progression within these steps on the Kickstarter page.

Risks and challenges

Precision electronic manufacturing is complex. It requires testing all expected behaviour and reliability.

We have learned a lot in the last years and feel confident that if we reach our financial goal, we can provide you the product as expected.
