    About Us



    Through his professional activities, Denis Garnier had already been involved in the climbing world for several years when in 2011 he imagined the future of the sport! 30kms northwest of Lyon, in the Rhône Alpes region, his “bright” idea was hatched and the LUXOV® adventure began.

    LUXOV® grew alongside Volx, a major market player since 1996 and subsidiary of the same group, taking advantage of their expertise in making traditional climbing holds. The engineering teams developed an innovative technology during 5 years of R&D, resulting in the invention of a connected system of touch-sensitive holds. It enables a completely new, fun, interactive climbing experience thanks to its digital holds!
