Via ferrata lanyards

Best Fun & Safety
on the Via Ferrata

Light, compact, easy to use, and safe

The mountain breeze whistles around your ears and your climbing shoes are securely placed on the narrow iron rungs that you’re working your way up, while the carabiners on your via ferrata lanyard glide safely along the wire rope. Compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use equipment makes all of this great fun. After all, the less you have to think about safety as you climb, the more you can enjoy your alpine experience. The latest generation of EDELRID via ferrata lanyards with the innovative new shock absorber offers precisely this ease of use. They are significantly lighter and more compact than all previous models while still fully complying with all the requirements of the new European standard on via ferratas and guaranteeing low impact forces in all weight classes from 40 kg. This enables even children and light climbers to enjoy safe and carefree via ferrata experiences.
