We've put together this handbook to share our passion for ropes our expertise. A rope is more than just a piece of equipment; your life might depend upon it. We aim to make the best ropes possible. However, even the best rope in the world is not much use if it's not used correctly. This is why we want to raise awareness of the capabilities and limitations of our ropes. We want to provide you with lots of useful information about static ropes in an accessible format.
This handbook describes how our ropes are produced, provides advice for selecting the right rope, and gives tips for the care and maintenance of your ropes. It explains how a rope can be damaged and certain things that should be avoided at all costs. You'll also find useful practical tips and PPE inspection information.
CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY is the EDELRID credo – we apply it to our ropes to make versatile products that meet and exceed the highest quality standards. We have over 150 years of experience in rope manufacturing. This combination of experience and enthusiasm constantly drives us to explore new paths and only accept the best. As a manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment, we naturally make quality management our highest priority.
EDELRID continues to push forward with their expansion into North America and beginning in 2017 has signed Tommy Caldwell as a full line athlete. Tommy's endorsement of and promotion of EDELRID's products will cover the complete climbing product range, including ropes, harnesses, helmets, hardware, and all other climbing related gear. As a 153 year old company who has only begun to make their presence known in North America, this move is an exciting confirmation of things to come.
In 2016, Tommy Caldwell joined the EDELRID Athlete Team, supporting a core product of the company: EDELRID's climbing ropes. After a year of working directly with the brand, Tommy chose to make the bold move to realign his climbing gear related sponsorships exclusively to EDELRID.
"I have been spoiled over the years to have the opportunity to work with amazing companies that put their core values before the bottom dollar. I understand that the products I choose to buy and the companies I choose to partner with are a reflection of my values. A few months ago I made the difficult decision to end my relationship with a brand that I have been with for seventeen years that had provided me with endless inspiration. The best way to live is with vigor and intention, which has led me to the decision to join EDELRID as a full line athlete. I believe this company has the ability to change our ideas of how we move around in the mountains. I am partnering with EDELRID because of their innovation and their ability to be nimble, because they hold themselves to the highest environmental and quality standards, and because they are family owned and value based. These qualities are where I hope the future of climbing lies, and I'm excited to be a part of it", so Tommy.
