German Alpine Club (DAV)
German Alpine Club (DAV)
EDELRID is the official supplier of technical equipment for all of the German Alpine Club’s teams of instructors and climbing squads, as well as the DAV expedition teams.
Founded in 1869, the German Alpine Club is an independent mountain sports and nature conservation organisation. It has almost a million members in 350 legally independent regional divisions. It promotes public interest and brings together people from different generations, social and cultural backgrounds.
Members of the German Alpine Club share a passion for mountains. The club’s central tenets are freedom, respect and responsibility. Members are free to choose which mountain sports they undertake, and free to accept the risks these may pose. There are however limits to this freedom. It must also show respect and responsibility towards other people and the environment.
Climbers Against Cancer
"The World Climbing Championships in Bercy, Paris was where the idea for CAC was born. I sat amongst some very good friends from around the globe, climbers, coaches, officials, route setters. They were all there, from every nation, with differing backgrounds, different cultures, various languages and yet everyone was a friend. Supporting each other regardless of their nationality, cheering loudly as a route was flashed or a boulder was topped. Almost like a huge extended family, we had all come together under one banner and to support the sport we love! Climbing is a special sport. Like no other! It was in this moment I knew we had so much to offer as a group of friends. This is when CAC came to life!" - John Ellison
The goals of Climbers Against Cancer are not only to raise funds to help fight cancer by supporting research but also, just as important, to raise awareness of the disease and highlight the problems that not only the cancer sufferers go through, but also their families and friends.
EDELRID ist stolz offizieller Partner von Climbers Against Cancer zu sein.
A Diamir binding is like a complex clock mechanism and similarly, at our headquarters in Reichenbach in the Bernese Oberland the components are efficiently assembled by skilled hands, part by part, to create a high-quality product. Before the bindings leave the assembly hall, each and every one is meticulously tested for safety and function with specially designed test equipment. All components are made in Switzerland of high-tech synthetic materials and top-of-the-line light metals by our specialized suppliers using innovative material processing and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes.
Since the products are exposed to extreme conditions in practical use, our quality and sustainability standards are exceptionally stringent. Diamir bindings are in compliance with DIN ISO standards. The bindings as well as the entire manufacturing process have been examined and certified by the Technical Standards Board (TÜV).
“Organics with love” – this statement is not just an advertising slogan printed on the labels of Rapunzel products or used in our literature. It is our company motto and our leading principle. This simple slogan expresses our strong conviction that there is more to the production of healthy, environmentally and socially sustainable food than certified organic cultivation.
