Klettersteigset Step Web / Via Ferrata equipment set

Klettersteigset Step Web

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

The Via Ferrata climbing has increased in popularity regardless of ability, age or weight. The main problem so far: There was no Via Ferrata Set for children or lightweight persons. The peaks of impact force in case of falling are extremely high. The solution: Mammut invented a new Via Ferrata Set, which exhibits an increasing breaking behavior when the wearer falls. This in fact means soft breaking of the fall, while avoiding the initial peak impact even for children and lightweight persons.
The system: The new, patented 3-level break webbing combined with the breaking plate provides for a soft landing every time.
