Edelrid technology is based on over 150 years of Alpine expertise
German manufacturer Edelrid was first established over 150 years ago. It was founded by Julius Edelmann, who was a salesman and mountaineer, and Carl Ridder, a specialist in braiding machines. The company started out making braids and chords before becoming one of the first to introduce environmentally-friendly ropes for professional mountaineers to the market.
In 1953, Edelrid devised the kernmantel rope, a type of rope that features a woven exterior around the interior core to optimise its durability and strength while still retaining flexibility. This revolutionised the climbing world, as thanks to that rope, rope breakage during climbing became a thing of the past.
Edelrid’s major breakthrough came in 1964, when it developed the dynamic rope, a rope that can withstand multiple falls. It was the first of its kind. This set the scene for climbing ropes as we know them today. The following year, Edelrid released its first climbing harness that helped climbers reach new levels and heights. It became popular worldwide. By 1996, Edelrid had pioneered rope for indoor climbing walls.
Since 2009, Edelrid has focused on manufacturing products that are not only superior in quality, but also meet the stringent requirements of the bluesign®environmental standard. The company won the EMAS / DIN ISO 14001 certification for environmental responsibility the following year. It continues to innovate ground-breaking products, with recent breakthrough items including the foldaway climbing helmet and interactive carabiners.
