Black Diamond has come a long way from its original roots in Yosemite Valley. It all started back in 1957 when Yvon Chouinard sold pitons out of the trunk of his car. Now they produce apparel, hard goods, and nearly every type of specialized equipment to navigate the high alpine.
The alpine touring Helio series from Black Diamond are very purpose-built and focus on keeping everything lightweight. These products utilize high-end materials and construction which have proven to be a staple for backcountry enthusiasts around the world.
Black Diamond continues to innovate and develop the products needed to reach every summit.
