Concerning EDELRID SPORT and RED CHILI climbing shoes:

There is no change in neither services nor people for EDELRID clients in the sports segment. EDELRID confirms that their strong and long-term agency GRANITBITEN, Stockholm is going to continue to successfully represent their brands within the sports segment.


Since its establishment in 1863, EDELRID GmbH & Co.KG has developed into a leading production company for ropes, climbing equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE). Since its acquisition by Albrecht of Dewitz in 2006, the company has been particularly characterized by high levels of innovation and sustainability. EDELRID not only developed the first kernmantle rope but also brought the first bluesign® certified ropes to the market. All product development activities take place in the German town of Isny im Allgäu, where 60 percent of all products (including 100 percent of ropes) are produced. This guarantees not only the exceptional quality and functionality appreciated by EDELRID users worldwide, but also ongoing innovation. The renowned climbing shoe brand Red Chili has been part of EDELRID’s product portfolio since 2017. Since 2022, ABS Sports + Protection GmbH & Co KG, manufacturer of avalanche backpacks, has expanded the EDELRID Group.
