EDELRID is a technology specialist with over 150 years of experience keeping climbers safe.
Edelrid was founded by Julius Edelmann and Carl Rider in 1863. They came up with Edelrid by combining their last names. In 1953 Edelrid invented the kernmantel rope and revolutionized the world of climbing. Materials and production techniques were constantly improved and then 11 years later, Edelrid produced a rope capable of withstanding multiple falls—the forerunner of the modern dynamic climbing rope. Climbing has never looked back since. Edelrid's commitment to the environment makes the brand even more trustworthy. Every centimeter of its eco-conscious climbing ropes is Bluesign certified, with the most popular and reliable ropes made from recycled thread.
