THE COMPLETE VIA FERRATA EXPERIENCE

Low weight, compact, easy to use and safe!

Compact, light, and safe: the latest generation of EDELRID via ferrata sets impresses with low weight, a compact design, and unrivaled ease of use. This has been made possible through a newly developed shock absorber, which is far more compact and lightweight than all previous models. At the same time, it fulfills all the requirements of the new via ferrata standard and guarantees low impact force values for all weight categories. This means that nothing further stands in the way of a safe and unencumbered via ferrata experience.

The shock absorber is the heart of any via ferrata set. In the event of a fall, it tears and absorbs the fall energy. The fall is attenuated, significantly reducing the risk of serious injury.

As a result of the revised via ferrata standard of 01/01/2017, our via ferrata sets had become far larger and heavier. It was previously only possible to meet the new requirements (low impact forces for all weight categories and an extended braking distance of 2.2 meters) with far larger shock absorbers. Consequently, the via ferrata sets also became significantly more cumbersome.

We have now succeeded, for the first time, in developing a shock absorber that is far more compact but still fulfills all the requirements of the new safety standard. This innovative shock absorber is used in all of our via ferrata sets and makes the new EDELRID via ferrata sets some of the lightest and most compact sets on the market.

 

With different materials and constructions we finally have it again:

The lightest and smallest shock absorber for via ferrata sets on the market!

 

 

The four different versions of the via ferrata sets offer a suitable solution for every area of application and different preferences. They all use the new shock absorber and have elasticated arms for keeping the carabiners close to hand.

NEW DESIGN FOR EVEN EASIER INSPECTION

Easy access to the inner label makes it very simple and fast to check the shock absorber. For a quick visual inspection you can open the bag of the shock absorber. In case the shock absorber has been exposed to a fall or critical load, red indicator threads will become visible. In this case the via ferrata set has to be replaced.
