It is with great sorrow that we honor the passing of Riccardo Cassin, but it is also with great respect and happiness that we celebrate a long life well lived. An excellent summary of Riccardo’s career and significance can be found from the following stories and links:
The Cassin brand was acquired by CAMP in 1997 and 2009 marks a strategic year for the companies as CAMP celebrates its 120th birthday alongside the 100th birthday of Riccardo Cassin. In honor of this rich history, the CAMP and Cassin brands have been merged. The Cassin brand will carry forward with its prominence in extremely technical categories like technical ice and big wall climbing. CAMP will continue to develop its identity as the lightweight leader and further refine what is now the largest line of technical climbing equipment in the world.
