Our service team updates your Ortovox or Pieps LVS device for you.
For more than 70 years, we’ve been in search of new adventures, for even better products. SALEWA successfully combines decades of experience with the pleasure in innovation and the dynamics of a company, which continues to set itself ever higher goals. Those responsible for the products work hard to further improve upon products, which are already seemingly perfect. At the same time, the customers’ needs are always the main focus. The close teamwork with the members of the international SALEWA alpineXtrem teams guarantees that each product is tested to its absolute limit (and partially even beyond this). The direct feedback from those using the product, enable the products to be continually perfected and radically new products to be developed. This info guide provides information to you - as the specialist supplier and our most important partner - about the uses and advantages of the different product groups and materials. The information should act as a useful aid and sales support for you. For SALEWA is your competent partner, from the development through to the sales support – for the past 70 years and in the future. The SALEWA brand stands for quality mountain sport equipment, which satisfies the strictest demands. Mountain sport experience, a spirit of innovation and technical skills are the principal success factors, perfect products are the aim. Extremely light Anything that is light is easier to carry, and for a longer period of time. Achieving maximum weight reduction through better construction solutions and choice of materials is the focal point of our development process. Carbon-reinforced Y-frames save weight because the material is extremely light and less of it is needed for the same degree of stability comparing to aluminum struts. Other weight savings are achieved through the use of light fabrics and the meticulous choice of buckles, straps and accessories. • Optimum load distribution From a volume of 50 litres, SALEWA rucksacks are fitted with the Multifit system, by which the length of the rucksack can be individually adjusted. If the load’s centre of gravity is in the correct place, then heavier loads can be comfortably carried on longer distances. The decisive factor is that the carrying system can be adjusted to suit your individual body shape and the correct positioning of stabilisers. Just look at the new height-adjustable shoulder straps of our Multifit system. Of course that also applies to the aluminum and carbon struts as well as the lateral stabilisers. In addition the pack’s position must be correct both vertically and horizontally. • Perfectly ventilated Sweating cools the body through the dampening effect of perspiration, at least in theory. When carrying a conventional rucksack that simple principle does apply, because the sweat cannot evaporate as there is a lack of ventilation. At each pit-stop a wet back threatens to cool the body and you freeze. We have therefore developed three different carrying systemswhich can remove sweat through optimized ventilation, thus preventing wet backs. According to size and purpose our rucksacks are equipped with the AIRMAT, AIRSTREAM and AIRSPACE systems.
