The American manufacturer Black Diamond is one of the global market leaders in the sectors of climbing, backcountry, and outdoor equipment.
The company was founded in 1989 and has its global headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. Initially known for state of the art carabiners and cams, Black Diamond has expanded its portfolio to include skis, poles, headlamps, snow safety equipment, apparel, and climbing shoes over the years. Numerous products won international awards and have a sustainable impact on mountain sports – such as the acclaimed Camalot® or the revolutionary JetForce® technology for avalanche airbags.
Black Diamond’s ethos is rooted in the idea that the style in which goals are accomplished is as important as achieving them at all, and this applies as much to their business as it does to their outdoor pursuits. That’s why Black Diamond has paired an innovative approach to building equipment with a unique approach to running a company.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live. Since 1957, their innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas.
CLIMB THE CIRCUIT
The bouldering circuit is a cornerstone for any devout climber. A litmus test for progression, a ritual of repetition. A meditation. At its core, a bouldering circuit is about movement, from hold to hold, one problem to the next. Black Diamond is providing the gear you need, from the ground up.
The Spot 350 and the Cosmo 300 are perfect for midweek dawn patrols, all-night approaches, urban adventures and overnighters in the woods. They are ergonomic with a lower profile for improved balance. Thanks to a watertight construction they keeps lighting the way whether you're forced to bike home in the rain, or you're hiking back to camp in an unexpected downpour.
