Dr. Dieter Lazik about the Boulder2800:
- "Every one can train on it - from the beginner to the professional".
- "The Boulder2800 is extremely flexible in that you can simulate hills, extreme cliffs and even overhanging rocks: With its extremely variable rotation and tilting-mechanism the large climbing disk (with a 2,8 m diameter) the most diverse routes with the variable difficulties one can find in alpine climbing can be simulated."
- "The boulder trains body and mind, whether in individual or competitive training."
- "The operation of the boulder is extremely simple. The tilting if the disk can be set up to 90° in both directions. You can manually set 7 speed levels rotating clockwise or anti-clockwise. Besides that, the boulder has 8 pre-defined programs with increasing difficulty and program number 9 with very high difficulty. It would through me off in just a few moments. Programm 9 is a 22 minute random program with extreme cliffs and variation in speed, tilting and direction. No professional climber has completed level 9, but we would be happy to learn about people that did. It can be made even more difficult by replacing the current big grips and handles with the grips found in professional climbing."
- "The Boulder2800 is extremely safe: With the few thousand people that have used it, no accident has happened to date. Something that can not be said of the other forms of climbing and bouldering."
