The Resilience Paraclimbing Pants are the first adaptive climbing pant and one of the first pieces of inclusive performance apparel.
Designed for climbers living with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI), these pants offer protection against abrasion and impact, design optimised for both climbing and seated positions, and high-performance features. The Resilience Pants lower the risk of injury, making outdoor climbing more accessible, while ease of donning and doffing allows paraclimbers more independence. The clean aesthetic and fit enhance the users’ image as strong and resilient athletes, and empower them to climb as long and hard as their limitless, ambitious spirit desires.

This project has been longlisted in the wearable design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
