Snap Wrap Original Crash Pad
The Snap Wrap Original Crash Pad is a bouldering mat with a unique design that makes it nice and soft for sitting starts and low falls but also firm enough for extra impact protection when the falls get higher. How do they do it? the Snap Wrap Original Crash Pad is a one-piece design made of twenty 30 x 25 x 12cm cells. The taffeta fabric that covers the cells is perforated so lightly that air is released on smaller falls but retained due to the stronger force of higher falls. If this wasn’t genius enough, the Snap Original Wrap also has shoulder straps with three different carry options. All in all, a super-safe and high-quality crash mat that’s just as suitable for high ball boulders as it is for low, technical problems.
|DIMENSIONS OPEN||150 x 100 x 15 cm|
|DIMENSIONS CLOSED||100 x 70 x 45 cm|
You might have noticed the quilted design of the Snap Original Wrap Crash Pad – each cell is made up of a square of PU foam that’s wrapped in perforated taffeta. A small fall will force excess air through these holes and allow the mat to compress to break your fall. A larger fall will be faster, which will generate a bigger impact force. This means the air doesn’t have time to escape and the pad will not compress as much, so it will be firmer to land on and more effectively absorb the impact of your fall.
Three Carry Options
The Snap Original Wrap features backpack carry straps on the underside that can be adjusted to make a removable shoulder strap, meaning you’ll never have to get muddy while carrying your crash pad again. It also has suitcase-style carry handles so you can easily move it between boulder problems.
Ballistic Polyester Outer Edge
The Snap Original Wrap Crash Pad has a 1680 denier ballistic polyester outer edge, which is one of the strongest materials on the market. It’s seamless around the edges for extra durability and has a waterproof, non-slip, wipe-clean base for extra longevity and security.
Snap Original Wrap consists of 1cm of PU foam for extra cushioning, plus 1.5cm EVA high density reticulated foam to break your fall, and then 12 cm of PU foam to absorb the shock of the impact. This is super-safe and hard-wearing, and is an industry standard for crash pads.

Ordered this pad due to the insane discount offered at the time 20% + an extra 10% at the till got it to less than £200! Had to test it the moment it turned up so jumped out the 1st floor window onto it and i didnt feel a thing! Much better than the ocun and Wild Country pads ive used and to top it all off fits perfectly in my boot (VW Fox). Thanks Epic TV and thanks to the email helpers dealing with my impatience (it turned up on day 6).
Great quality product, makes a big difference when dropping off from 4+ m compared to my previous pad. Very happy!
