Black Diamond Climbing Gear
Black Diamond believes in their products, because they use their own gear to
fuel their passions. They use their equipment to pursue their climbing and skiing
adventures because they know just how much work, dedication, and perfection
is poured into each product. Their innovative designs and concepts are constantly
propelling the outdoor enthusiasts that Black
Diamond is made up of, as well as others across the globe who share
their values and desire for quality and pushing the limits in nature.
With a history of excellence dating back to 1957, Black Diamond has always
strived to create a better piece of gear. The eighteen-year-old Yvon Chouinard
got his start by hand-forging climbing pitons with a hammer and anvil. His superior
product quickly became sought by other climbers, and Chouinard was encouraged
to begin developing other equipment that would enhance the sports he loved.
High-function design, performance, and durability have always been the goal
when Black Diamond
sets out to build something, and it is no coincidence that these are all the
same traits valued by serious climbers and skiers.
Anything you could possibly need while dangling from a rock or ice face can
be found with the Black Diamond name on it. That name is your guarantee of that
you are using the best so that you can focus on reaching your goals. By providing
ice axes, crampons, and center bars for ice climbing and helmets, chalk, and
ropes for all types of vertical ascents, Black Diamond has you covered no matter
what surface you are scaling. Their Chaos
Climbing Harness is as comfortable and trustworthy as you can ask
for with plenty of gear loops to hang your Hoodwire, Neutrino, or other Black
Diamond carabiners from.
True lovers of powder know that to get the best skiing experience possible,
you have to venture into the backcountry. When you get there, you are going
to want a pack like the Black
Diamond Revelation Backpack with you at all times. Not only is
it super light and roomy with a removable aluminum stay, but it can also save
your life. The built-in AvaLung can boost your chances of survival if an avalanche
strikes by increasing your supply of fresh air. The Black
Diamond Enforcer Glove is also designed to enhance your experience
in snowy conditions. With improved dexterity and protection, this glove is solidified
by a Gore-Tex insert as a top cold weather glove.
Black Diamond began with one man’s enthusiasm for enhanced gear to help
him enjoy the outdoors. Now, it is a brand ignited by that same love, but shared
by many who also have a passion for the outdoors. The people at Black
Diamond describe themselves as a group of users. They are their
own harshest critics who are engaged in a never-ending pursuit to create a better
Black Diamond. Latch onto their limitless energy and let Black Diamond take
you further than you ever fathomed.
