Bolt Buster - 6 TITANIUM glue in climbing bolts - break test in slow motion

The Titan Eterna's shocked us that we got very similar results in both shear and tension when we did our break tests in granite with Hilti 500 v3 epoxy glue.

We got in shear 45.88KN, 51.32KN, and 44.88KN.

We got in tension 42.14KN, 42.10KN and 47.70KN

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
