Climbing gear for mountain athletes
Adam Ondra, Alex Honnold, Dave MacLeod, Ines Papert and many other exceptional athletes trust Black Diamond equipment with their lives, just like generations of mountain athletes have done before them. Since the very beginning, Black Diamond has understood and catered to the needs of mountaineers. The American manufacturer produces gear for virtually all aspects of climbing.
Black Diamond produces climbing harnesses, carabiners, portable safety equipment, such as nuts and cams, as well as ascenders and Portaledges for big wall climbing.
Snow and ice
The American brand is an expert when it comes to conquering snow and ice. They’ve developed many products built for ice climbing, such as razor-sharp ice screws, ergonomically designed ice equipment and crampons.
Black Diamond also has plenty to offer when it comes to ski touring. The AvaLung system is one of their most famous innovations in this field and can help save the lives of avalanche victims by managing their oxygen supply. Air is filtered out of the snow through a valve on the AvaLung system, and the CO2 that is being exhaled is transported away from the body through another valve. The system ensures you have a supply of fresh air for a significantly longer time.
Mountaineering and other activities
Black Diamond has plenty to offer when it comes to mountaineering, hill walking and other activities. For example, Black Diamond produces super lightweight trekking poles with clever locking mechanisms that allow you to save some valuable space.
Plus, they offer a large variety of backpacks for virtually all uses that offer plenty of space for your provisions, equipment and clothing. The use of great materials ensures that these backpacks are extremely durable, yet remain lightweight. Plus, their clever strap system allows you to comfortably carry the backpack over long distances.
Outdoor clothes for climbers
Black Diamond is an amazing brand for mountain sports gear. You won't find many other manufacturers with such a wide selection of products for conquering crags and ice. So, it comes as no surprise that their climbing clothes are so popular. Of course, their hoodies, climbing trousers and T-shirts are specially made for the demands of climbing and bouldering. Your outfit can’t get any better than that!
Black Diamond's strict quality checks
Recalls on climbing gear is not unheard of, but you never hear the name Black Diamond mentioned in this regard. The quality of their equipment is exceptional, which is no coincidence.
Quality is at the very core of the company's philosophy, so they strive to only produce high-quality climbing equipment. All parts of their equipment are tested in accordance with 3 Sigma, and checked for their ultimate-strength rating. They are ISO 9001 certified, which proves their commitment to providing only the very best equipment.
They support environmental protection projects
Striving towards a better use of natural resources, electric power and CO2 emissions is important. Black Diamond goes one step further and offers support for a variety of organizations.
These include the European Outdoor Conservation Association, which promotes various international environmental protection projects, and Respect the Mountain Organization, whose mission is to promote a more sustainable approach to mountain tourism and raise awareness on the unique beauty and vulnerability of these unique areas.
