Black Diamond's innovation philosophy and working with athletes

"I tried everything to keep my fingers from going numb. But nothing seemed to work. That's when I decided I needed some help ... and I knew just the crew to call."
-BD Athlete Alex Honnold

Not only has Alex Honnold had crucial impact on product design and new technologies, we work closely with our inspiring athletes such as Adam Ondra, Ines Papert and Thomas Gaisbacher in our main categories – climbing, skiing and mountain. Using the athletes' experience and knowledge of the quality of gear needed in pivotal situations, our team of engineers works to provide the best technologies to allow them to reach new heights, as well as providing the best solutions for our BD community and all the climbers and skiers who seek reliable gear. This pushes us to innovate, provide new solutions and different approaches, pushing the limits of the status quo.
