Mammut Wins Outdoor Retailer Innovation Award With Sustainable Rope Collection
January 26, 2021
(Williston, VT) Jan 26, 2021 — Mammut, leading Swiss-born outdoors brand, is proud to announce that it is a recipient of the coveted Outdoor Retailer Innovation Award 2021. The Mammut 9.5 Crag We Care Classic Rope, launching February 2021, was awarded the title by the Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards judges, who evaluated 30 finalist products and services based on four criteria: Spark: concept, design, appeal; Desire: opportunity, differentiation; Function: innovation, functionality, insight; and Impact: cultural, environmental, business.
With the 9.5 Crag We Care Classic Rope, Mammut is reducing the environmental footprint of its rope production for climbing. The sheath of the single rope is made from residual yarn leftover from other rope constructions, and each batch of 9.5 Crag We Care Classic Rope is one of a kind, featuring its own individual pattern. This rope is an example of responsible use of resources leading to reduced carbon emissions and stands alone in the industry as a uniquely thoughtful and innovative product.
According to the Outdoor Retailer website; “The Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards recognizes the cutting edge and carefully considered products and retail services from all seasons made famous at the trade show.”
“We are beyond proud to be recognized for our sustainable product offerings, proving once more that Mammut, despite being a heritage brand with almost two centuries of experience, is a leader in progression and innovation,” said Mammut North America GM Kris Kuster. “As inventors of the first UIAA certified dynamic climbing rope almost two centuries ago, we are perfectly poised to innovate within a relatively stagnant sector of the climbing industry, ropes, and are proud of our product development and sustainability teams for their hard work and single minded focus in creating a carbon efficient, environmentally driven performance and safety product such as this.”
