You want to know how a small company from Stubaital valley became a manufacturer of climbing and safety equipment with a worldwide distribution within 25 years?
Find out more about AUSTRIALPIN's history, the most important mile stones and the centuries-old tradition of metal processing in Stubaital valley here.
For 25 years we have been swimming against the tide – and we love it! We thereby stay true to our home waters and still develop, produce and test exclusively in Austria. The result: The safest high-quality products which show that regionality simply rocks! This also holds true for our belay device FISH with which we literally landed a big fish in 2016. Thanks to its high quality and simple handling, it ensures 100% safety on rock and in the climbing gym. And because you will feel like a fish in the water with our belay device, we designed a FISH special edition limited to 1000 devices for our 25th birthday – true to the motto: Black is the new gold!
Like our GOLD FISH, our black anniversary FISH is an amplified braking device set for single ropes with an additional dorsal lever to release the rope, which ensures a comfortable handling. With its unrivaled 68 grams it is perfectly suitable for ropes with a diameter of 8-11mm. In case of a fall, it blocks automatically and without additional manual force. Together with the HMS RONDO Slide Autolock, the world’s fastest autolock carabiner with a special anodized coating for more robustness, our FISH is the perfect partner for a safe belaying. Let’s face it: With our FISH you’ll always swim in smooth waters!
Over the years AUSTRIALPIN created some timeless classics and sophisticated innovations that characterized the climbing world and especially made it safer.
