The cold season is slowly saying goodbye, the snow cover is receding. This creates space on the mountain for grippy rock - high time to get the climbing gear out of hibernation and start the first vertical adventures of the season. The moment is extremely favorable, either to bring the equipment into shape or to replace it in the event of damage. It goes without saying that no compromises are made when it comes to safety-related equipment. We look at the care of ropes and the like - for more durability and more safety.
With the Capitan Helmet Kids, Black Diamond has developed a children's helmet that is certified for both climbing and cycling.
Metal, nylon, polyamide. Climbing equipment consists of materials that all have different areas of application and care requirements. Here you will find an overview of how to properly care for your climbing rope, harness, climbing shoes, carabiners, helmet and belay devices. So you have more fun with your equipment and can climb with it longer.
We show you the ideal companion for your next sport climbing session: The Vapor helmet by Black Diamond.
