ENSA Even today, SIMOND material is developed and tested on the mountain by the most demanding climbers: trainers at ENSA - the French national skiing and mountaineering school - of the next generations of high-altitude guides.
This all started over 150 years ago, with the Simond brothers, blacksmiths and crystal engravers. They worked with iron and wood, the first adventurers turned to them to manufacture the material which would make it possible to explore the mountains.
At Simond, we kit you out from head to toe, in all your vertical adventures!
Discover what is hidden behind the products which support you indoors, on the rock face and in the mountains.
To optimise your manoeuvres in all situations, we have tweaked the patented Spider closure system. By moving the male part of the Keylock system from the carabiner's nose, to its gate, the opening is fully released. A seamless system for optimal smoothness.
