Mammut scoops four awards at the world’s largest outdoor trade fair

There’ll be plenty more from ISPO in Munich – The Great Outdoors has our best people there looking for the latest and greatest gear innovations – but in the meantime here’s some news from Mammut.

Mammut has won four ISPO awards for product innovations in the outdoor and snowsports categories. The Nordwand HS Flex jacket from the Eiger Extreme collection was rated best in class by an international jury of 45 experts, who selected it as Gold Winner.

The roots of the Swiss outdoor company Mammut date back to 1862. From a small rope manufacturer, Mammut has transformed into one of the world’s leading mountain sports brands over the last 150 years.

Adrian Margelist, Chief Creative Officer of the Mammut Sports Group AG, commented: “It is a great honor for Mammut to win four ISPO Awards in a single year – in particular the award for the Nordwand HS Flex Jacket. Behind the highly demanding products in the Eiger Extreme collection lies an innovation process amounting to around 25,000 working hours. Acknowledgments such as these encourage us to continue to consistently invest in development and forge new paths while at the same time preserving Mammut’s mountain sports DNA.”

The Eiger Extreme Collection stands for Mammut products developed for maximum performance in alpine sport and are tailored to the needs of the world’s most demanding athletes. Each garment has been designed directly on and with the athletes from the Mammut Pro Team.

The winners

Wall Rider MIPS

ISPO Award 2018 Winner

Category OUTDOOR – Climbing Accessories

The Wall Rider MIPS is the first climbing helmet to feature MIPS technology. If it sustains a lateral impact, the low-friction MIPS layer allows the helmet shell to move. This reduces rotational movement during the impact, which significantly reduces the risk of brain injuries.

Spindrift 14

ISPO Award 2018 Winner

Category SNOWSPORT – Backpacks

The many clever features on this lightweight ski-touring backpack, weighing just 760 grams, have been designed to allow easy and fast handling. For instance, skis and poles can be secured to the backpack without having to put it down. An integrated, stowable wind protector also eliminates the need to continuously put on and take off a weather protection jacket.
