Newton 4.0 Bouldering Pad


2019 Climbing Magazine Editor’s Choice Bouldering Pad

The Newton 4.0 Bouldering Pad is the all-season, workhorse of the Kinetik pad line.  Designed for the entire experience from catch, to carry, to keeping you clean and dry. The 48″ x 36″ landing zone, with four inches of foam, gives you peace of mind on all your projects. Long approaches and heavy loads are nothing with a pack system that accommodates the widest range of people, with unmatched comfort.  With our Omni-flap system, pad shuffling is smooth and easy, no chance of catching pack straps on roots or rocks, and no chance of ruining your favorite send shirts on the hike out.  The Omni-Flap system allows for easy secure stacking, so bring all the foam you want.  Choose the colors that energize you using our real-time customizer and design exactly what you want from your Newton.  Each pad is made to order, so please allow one to two weeks for production.

REDESIGNED for 2019 with improvements built on all that we have learned since 2011, the Newton 4.0 bouldering pad is constructed of the best materials and made in the USA in our Boulder, Colorado workshop.  Packed full of features you cannot find on any other bouldering pad on the market, it is quality built and designed with every moment considered, so you can keep your mind on the send, not on your gear.  For a whole new level of comfort on those long approaches build the ultimate setup with our Moment Pocket and Alpine Shoulder Straps and Waistbelt combination.
