CASSIN is more than a story. CASSIN is a legend with two great protagonists: the mountain and the man. From Grandes Jorasses to Denali, places where the challenges are for real, Riccardo Cassin established some of today’s most iconic alpine routes with tools he made by himself. CASSIN is ‘alpinismo in evoluzione’ which stands for exploration in its most extreme sense, in places that exist only beyond known boundaries. This attitude puts us on the sharp end both in the mountains and in R&D where we are focused on discovering the most advanced materials and designs to help push exploration ever further. Our breakthroughs are seen anywhere you see the signature CASSIN brand stamped on a piece of gear.
