Among the numerous winners of the different types of awards that Ispo Munich has put out this year, the overall winner in the outdoor category is the Snipe 9.8/10 mm rope by Edelrid. It is the first rope with two different diameters in the market. The new manufacturing technology called EnduroTec makes it possible to produce a rope with a thicker part for enhanced durability and a thinner one which is easier to handle. The different color patterns distinguish the different diameters. The first award ever in the new category “Asian product of the year” goes to the B1XG1 Jacket by Black Yak, the South Korean brand, for its combination of extraordinary design and outstanding comfort in terms of temperature and moisture management. As reported earlier, the overall winner in the new category “Communication of the year” went to Mammut for its multi-channel campaign celebrating the brand's 150th birthday.
