Austri Alpin now available in the UK
The Stubai valley has a history of metal processing stretching back to the 14th Century, and in the 1930's the ancestors of today's producers started to forge karabiners. In 1996 this small group of innovative craftsmen began to specialize in products to provide maximum safety for those working and playing in the mountain, and Austri Alpin was born.
Since that time the range has grown, but the primary philosophy remains: to trust the knowledge and expertise of our craftsmen and therefore to continue to produce in Fulpmes in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol. We continue to specialize in our core competence of metal processing, and work closely with our team athletes and mountain professionals to develop innovative new products.
Some highlights of the range include the outstanding Ovalock Belay karabiner, with an innovative design which allows users to operate with one hand; and the Rockit Quickdraw pack, a high quality set of sport climbing 'draws sold as an excellent value set.
Previously only available in the UK through a small number of specialist retailers such as Rock and Run, Austri Alpin is now distributed by Beyond Hope Ltd. A stockist list can be found here: www.beyondhope.co.uk
