If you’re thinking climbing ropes, harnesses, carabiners, slings or crampons, think Edelrid. German engineering and efficiency in climbing form, available here! Edelrid is, essentially, the brand responsible for the most important climbing equipment that you use today.
Back when the rest of Europe was still using dodgy hemp or nylon rope, the Germans invented the kernmantel rope, which is still the industry standard for all mountain ropes today. If that wasn’t enough, Edelrid then introduced the first dynamic rope and the first harness! Every Edelrid rope you buy is bluesign® certified, meaning that Edelrid has taken measures in their production process to cause the least possible impact to the environment. Now over 150 years old, Edelrid continues to excel in its field, producing a huge range of top-quality yet reasonably-priced climbing gear.
