Black Diamond Equipment earns Awards for Fall 2013 products

Black Diamond Equipment, a leading global innovator in climbing, skiing and mountain sports equipment, announces a series of recent accomplishments and product awards for its forthcoming 2013 offerings.

At ISPO 2013 in Munich, Germany, Black Diamond Equipment was honored with prestigious ISPO Awards for the following products: Factor Mx 130 AT boots, Carbon Megawatt skis and Carbon Compactor poles.

The Factor Mx 130 and the Shiva Mx 110 both feature Black Diamond’s patented Mx Direct Connect™ technology. New Mx Direct Connect technology increases lateral stiffness 70 percent over most bolt-on systems, translating to more precise power transmission. The 2013 Carbon Megawatt gains sidewall construction and loses another 500 grams, making it one of the lightest fat skis on the market. Finally, the Black Diamond Carbon Compactor poles combine innovative Z-Pole technology with rugged carbon fiber construction for lightweight packability and unparalleled strength.

The same Carbon Compactor poles have also recently received the winner title of the prestigious red dot design award 2013. Additionally, Black Diamond Equipment was recognized as an ISPO Award Gold Winner 2013 for their “Because Flat Sucks” print ad. The ad features a humorous look at the passion of Black Diamond skiers without any images of athletes, mountains or snow and comments on what skiing would be like on flat terrain with a strong headline targeting young Freeriders.
