AustriAlpin Precautionary Recalls Via Ferrata Sets Hydra and Colt

Longtime Test Showed Problems With the Stretching Arms

08/21/2012, Fulpmes, Austria: The austrian company AustriAlpin recalls their via ferrata sets Hydra and Colt. Longtime checks of both via ferrata sets showed the risk of functional failures.


After the recall of via ferrata sets of the german company Edelrid, AustriAlpin tested their via ferrata sets again. The longtime test showed the problem. The elastic lanyards are not conformable with the standards after heavy use.

The use of the sets should immediately be stopped until they have been checked and approved by AustriAlpin.

The following via ferrata sets are affected:


Hydra (batch: AS 93 C) and Colt (batch: AS 90 C)

hydra 1  AS90C

Specialized retailers are requested to send all new via ferrata sets to AustriAlpin.

All owners
of the affected via ferrata sets are requested to send those to AustriAlpin.


To be able to ensure a trouble-free procedure please write your address, e-mail and telephone number on the shipment.

Postage costs will be reimbursed. You have two possibilities to choose from:
1.    you provide them with your account information and the amount of postage costs
2.    once they are returning the sets you get an austrialpin hms carabiner for free

AustriAlpin is going to undertake every returned via ferrata set an inspection and is going to replace the stretching arms and will send the via ferrata set as fast as possible back to you.
