Who are we?


Our Story

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 with the invention of this digital innovation! 30kms northwest of Lyon, in the Rhône-Alpes region, this « bright » idea was hatched and the Luxov® adventure began. An adventure « Made in France ».

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 this innovative technology during 5 years of R&D, resulting in the intelligent system you see today. It enables a completely new, fun, connected climbing experience thanks to its digital holds!

Luxov® became available in 2016, with its first permanent installation at l’Isle d’Abeau, between Lyon and Grenoble.
