Nos Athlètes

Nous sommes heureux d’avoir le meilleur team de grimpeurs et de skieurs sponsorisés dont on puisse rêver, des athlètes qui repoussent leurs limites et redéfinissent les frontières du possible. D’horizons divers, ils occupent une place fondamentale au sein de la famille Black Diamond car ils donnent non seulement un retour sur la conception des produits et les tests sur le terrain mais sont également notre source d’inspiration pour continuer d’avancer et fabriquer toujours le meilleur matériel disponible sur le marché.
