Edelrid raises the bar for Sustainability and Innovation in the climbing industry

  1. Meets Bluesign Standards. Edelrid reduces their production footprint for the entire supply chain.
  2. Built to Last Steel Inserts. For increased durability, steel inserts are placed on belay devices and carabiners.
  3. All Non-Dry ropes are PFC Free. When it comes to Dry Ropes, Edelrid develops alternatives to harmful chemicals with PFC Free Dry Rope treatments.
  4. Innovative products and designs. (i.e. The Jul Family, Aramid Slings, Ohm Device)

"The Edelrid Ohm is the first product to try and succeed at fixing the unbalanced lead/belayer problem. As Edelrid says, “It is a solution for the problems experienced by climbing partners with a significant difference in weight.

“That is to say the risk for a heavier lead climber if their partner has difficulty controlling their falls and the risk for a lighter belayer if their partner’s falls pull them off the ground, hurling them against the wall. The Ohm is an assisted-braking resistor that you install at the first bolt in the safety chain.”" - Gripped Magazine

Great for indoor and outdoor use, the Edelrid Ohm Assisted Braking device increases the amount of rope friction so that a lighter-weight belayer can hold a heavier lead climber without difficulty.

  • Ohm is attached at the first bolt in the safety chain.
  • The Ohm makes it easier for a belayer to hold a fall and limits how high he or she is pulled off the ground; this can help reduce the distance a lead climber falls.
  • Lowering a heavier climber is also easier to control.
  • No additional friction can be detected when pulling up slack to clip.
  • Recommended weight difference (lead climber > belayer): 25 - 85 lbs.; minimum belayer weight 85 lbs.
