JetForce Technology

The result of a multi-year collaboration between Black Diamond and PIEPS, JetForce Technology is the first avalanche airbag system to use jet-fan inflation. Designed from the ground up to improve ease of use and performance over traditional compressed gas cylinder systems, JetForce’s rechargeable electronic system deploys a highly abrasion-resistant 200L airbag with a high-powered fan. Easy to repack, rearm and redeploy on a single charge, JetForce is a travel-friendly system that offers zero-cost user practice.

Deploy Series Shovels

Black Diamond designed the Deploy shovels series to fit efficiently in your pack, with a collapsible handle that nestles inside the blade for efficient use of space. They are made of tough, light aluminum, and feature a hybrid D/T handle for comfort and efficient digging, making them perfect for everyday backcountry missions, small snow pits, and digging in tight spots.

QuickDraw Probes

Speed and reliability are essential in rescue situations. Black Diamond’s QuickDraw deployment system easily readies your probe for use with one pull, making the most of valuable seconds. Other features of the QuickDraw lineup of probes include an oversized alloy tip for increased sensitivity and high-vis markings that make snow study a breeze.

PIEPS Avalanche Beacons

As a stand-alone brand within the Black Diamond family, PIEPS designs and produces avalanche beacons with the philosophy that the thing that truly matters is unconditional reliability. To meet this high standard, PIEPS collaborates in product development with professional guides, rescue teams, instructors, and scientists. The result is a line of beacons that meet the PIEPS vision of Premium Alpine Performance.
