Pack (330g) packaging from TOKYO Powder has a one-way valve. This allows the air to be pushed out of the pack and the chalk stays fresh longer!
The SPEED Chalk by TOKYO Powder combines excellent friction properties with a scent mixture of eucalyptus, lemongrass and peppermint. This has the effect of increasing your concentration and making you feel more balanced and alert.
In addition, the effect of eucalyptus as an insect repellent, as a medicine in medicine and its effect on concentration has been known for a long time.
In climbing situations in which you suddenly hesitate and are intimidated, the smell of the SPEED Chalk helps you to push these concerns aside and to concentrate confidently on the difficult moves!
The combination of the three fragrances also gives a slight feeling of warmth.
It all starts with the best raw ingredients – the Magnesium Carbonate. The misconception is that all Magnesium Carbonate are produced from mining and magnesite. Here at Tokyo Powder, we work closely with the Japanese salt industry who refine the Magnesium Carbonate as a by-product of the other salts from seawater. This also greatly reduces the environmental impact that is commonly caused by mining. It also helps to keep our chalk Calcium Carbonate free – which is a bad component for friction usually found in chalk that is derived from magnesite mining.
We don’t claim to have a uniform particle size of chalk, which we feel makes the chalk feel slippery. Instead, we start with particles of chalk between 3 to 5 micrometers – ideal for coating your hands for optimal friction. To stress again, we don’t grind down blocks of chalk to reach this stage, as it is refined from essentially liquids.
