An ultra-light, In-Mold helmet with a robust webbing closure system. This lightweight design and excellent ventilation makes it suitable for both sport Mountaineering and climbing. It offers the easiest combination of protection and comfort for long and demanding climbs. –The History of EDELRID– EDELRID used to be founded by Julius EDELmann and Carl RIDder in 1863. In the beginning, the company made braids and cords. Julius Edelmann used to be a salesman and mountaineer, Carl Ridder a technician, who specialized in braiding machines. The faces might have changed through the years but EDELRID remains an innovative and creative company to this day. In 1953 EDELRID invented the kernmantel rope and revolutionized the world of Mountaineering. Materials and production techniques were continuously improved and then 11 years later, EDELRID produced a rope capable of withstanding more than one falls – the forerunner of the modern dynamic Mountaineering rope. Mountaineering has never looked back since. EDELRID makes a speciality of four sectors: Sports, Safety, Adventure Parks and Industry. The four EDELRID divisions originate from the company’s core competences in textile braiding and processing (i.e. weaving, braiding, stitching and textile finishing). As a manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), EDELRID puts safety and quality first right through both development and production.
