A via ferrata is the perfect way to venture into the rugged and fascinating world of the vertical. The route to the summit leads over rocky passages, steep walls or wobbly suspension bridges spanning deep gorges. Your life hangs on a wire rope and your via ferrata set, which is why these wire-rope secured routes are also known as via ferrata.

In May 2024, the mountain sports magazine ALPIN tested nine via ferrata sets from different manufacturers. In addition to the theoretical test, the main focus was on the practical test, in which the tie-in, handling of the carabiners, the functioning of a swivel joint and other aspects were examined. Our CABLE COMFORT TRI was named ALPIN test winner. This high-end via ferrata set raises the bar to a new level in terms of handling and fun factor.
