Newton Bouldering Pad


The Newton Bouldering Pad is the all-season, workhorse of the Kinetik product line.  The 48″ x 36″ landing zone, with four inches of foam in three unique densities, gives you peace of mind on all your projects.  Long approaches and heavy loads are nothing with our best in the market shoulder straps.  When it comes time to climb, the straps are  protected with the full coverage groundsheet.  Pad shuffling is smooth and easy with the pack system completely concealed, no chance of catching pack straps on roots or rocks.  The groundsheet keeps sand, mud, and moisture from coating your pad, protecting it from degrading and keeping you from ruining your favorite send shirts on the hike out.  Stack those pads using the Omni-Flap system, allowing easy secure stacking.  Choose the colors that energize you using our real-time customizer and get exactly what you want from your Newton.  Each pad is made to order, so please allow one week for production.
