What is

Vertical Freedom?

The EDELRID magazine for sport and high-altitude work

Mountain sports are our origin, but our passion goes beyond that. Freedom in vertical movement takes place in sport, but also in working at height and in tree care. We use synergies so that our products benefit from our development work in all areas. In the search for new solutions, we think "out of the box" and leave well-trodden paths in favour of the best results: safe, innovative, sustainable, lightweight products.

Free movement in the vertical? Vertical Freedom? What does that actually mean? Of course, we have also dealt intensively with these questions... and also invited our athletes and partners to tell us how they experience Vertical Freedom.
