Balls are the very basis of the UTURN. Their size and depth create a whole new dimension on the wall. With a diameter of 115cm and depth of 26cm, Ball 1 brings climbers far out from the wall. On the smaller side, Ball 2 has a diameter of 95cm and depth of 17cm, shaping the wall in a more nuanced way, perfect for vertical and slabby climbs.
UTURN volumes are Macros that can be freely moved over the spherical surface of the ball. Each volume has its unique shape and size, designed to create a wide variety of movement. The volumes may also be fixed directly onto the wall, just like typical Macros. Each volume will be delivered with the correct-sized bolt.
Inserts are at the core of the UTURN system. They can either be placed on the middle part (stack 3), or directly onto the ball. There are five different models, ranging from juggiest to slopiest (1 to 5), each offering a variety of concave shapes. They all rotate by 360 degrees, giving route-setters the option to greatly vary the difficulty, using just one insert. Each insert will be delivered with the correct-sized bolt & M6 screws.
The middle part is designed to give greater depth and mobility to the inserts. It looks like a slick and glossy Macro with a hollow space. It is designed to be mounted on the ball (as in stack 3) but can also be fixed directly onto the wall.
Made of polyurethane, the ring is designed to support the insert across all three stacks. It can be turned by 360 degrees, giving route setters full agency on the use of its dual texture surface.
The M10 central bolt (for stacks 2 and 3) comes in multiple lengths and connects everything from the volume/insert, to the ball and fixing plate. It is crucial to use the correct bolt length for each volume. The correct central bolt length can be found in the instruction manual.
The M6 screws (stacks 1 and 3) are specific screws only to be used to fix the insert to the ring & ball/middle part.
The rubber band helps keep the fixing plate close to the hole of the ball, to facilitate the addition of other components. This item automatically comes with a fixing plate order, but it can also be ordered separately if lost.
