Sport Equipment


Launched in May 2018, the IFSC Official Sport Equipment Catalogue is an initiative which aims at making the field of play as fair as possible across all IFSC events. IFSC events will use only products included in the IFSC Official Sport Equipment Catalogue, ensuring the same experience to all stakeholders: athletes, Member Federations, Event Organisers, Officials, and  Routesetters.

The Federation first released the Catalogue T20: Official Holds, Macros, and Volumes for Sport Climbing Events at the Olympic Games, in late 2019.

In September 2023, then, the IFSC released the P24 Online Catalogue: Holds, Macros, and Volumes for Sport Climbing events at the Olympic Games Paris 2024, to deliver the highest quality sport equipment and promote fairness among stakeholders. The selected materials from the P24 brands will be used at the Olympic Games and Olympic Qualifier Series Shanghai 2024.

Finally, in January 2024, the IFSC published Catalogue S24: Holds, Macros, and Volumes for Sport Climbing events at the Olympic Qualifier Series Budapest 2024.


The IFSC has created strict regulations for Speed Climbing competitions, defining high standards for four equipment items: walls, holds, automatic timing systems, and automatic belaying systems.


At all IFSC events, the Speed wall shall be built by one of the following Recognised Speed Wall Manufacturers: EP Climbing, Aolifeng, Climb Korea, Discovery, Geckoking, Sint Roc, Tosho, and Walltopia.
