The Black Diamond Difference

At True North Outpost we believe anyone can climb and with the Black Diamond Momentum climbing shoe you are off to a great start. Designed to provide unparalleled comfort for all day cragging and gym sessions, the Momentum is a two-strap Velcro shoe that combines innovative technology with a classic, flat-last design to create an entry-level shoe that excels in performance. With an upper fabric that consists entirely of our Engineered Knit Technology, the Momentum provides stretch where you need it, support where it matters and all around exceptional breathability. We’ve also added a micro-fiber liner to the front of the shoe to minimize stretch and maximize comfort. The Momentum’s durable rubber is unique in that it’s molded—inspired by the way we forge our carabiners—versus cut from one sheet of rubber. This is our engineered solution to optimize our shoe’s rubber and rands for weight, consistency and comfort. Built for all-day comfort on moderate routes, boulders or gym sessions, the Momentum features a soft-flex mid-sole for sensitivity and is the perfect entry level climbing shoe. 

Pair the Momentum with our Black Diamond Gym Bags and your almost ready to smash that impossible problem. To keep chalk dust to a minimum, many gyms require climbers to use a chalk ball. Don't worry, the Gym Chalk Bag has you covered. With an integrated, refillable chalk ball, a brush holder and a slot for your lead certification tag, this bag is tailor-made for indoor sessions and can clip directly to your harness or you can opt to use the included chalk bag belt.

Both of these products are in stock now in the True North Outpost store and also on site at the Base Camp Climbing Gym at TNO. Come get yours today. PACKAGE DEALS AVAILABLE!

The magic chalk ball will make sure when you crash you don’t also lose your hard earned chalk.

Like a high performance climbing shoe, our high purity Magnesium Carbonate makes a single application far more efficient, giving you the extra edge to focus on sending not slipping.
