|«Desnivel Gear Award is a guarantee of quality for more than 25.000 readers of the magazine – organizers explain –. Innovation has been the main criterion to highlight one candidate over the others. But we have also considered aspects like functionality, design, quality of materials, durability and sustainable manufacturing». The independent jury tested 290 different products that are presented in the details in the latest Desnivel Special Gear issue.
Concerning the Warden harness, that is specifically designed for big wall climbing, the jury appreciated very much the leg loops construction that assures an amazing weight distribution during long periods of hanging; the six gear loops and the perforated EVA foam padding on the waist belt that guarantees great comfort and breathability are other features that jury considered very positive. The X-Light ice axe gained the prize for its excellent swing and full modularity, that make it the ideal tool both for classical routes and more technical terrains.
The Desnivel Silver Award confirms the high quality of two first class CASSIN products that obtained great success also at ISPO trade show in Munich when they were introduced. The Warden harness and the X-Light ice axe will be available in the stores starting from September to be with you in your exciting adventures in Autumn.
