Black Diamond Speed 30 Pack - 2013 Model Description
Climbing Packs - Black Diamond Speed 30
Updated for 2014, comes the improved Black Diamond Speed 30 pack. From single-push blitzes in the central Alaska Range to big Sierra ridge traverses, the Speed 30 is Black Diamond's streamlined, strippable climbing pack optimized for alpine-style ascents on rock or ice. If it's ever necessary to drop weight for the final push to the summit then the padded hipbelt, 4 mm aluminium frame, framesheet and top lid are all removable, converting the Speed 30 into an ultralight summit pack.
Because the shoulder straps and hipbelt move with you, friction and hot spots are eliminated. The pack's load stays perfectly balanced at all times, without adjustment, and allows your body to move naturally in any direction. This results in a more efficient, comfortable, longer stride - meaning you can cover more ground, more quickly.
The IceLink tool attachments, 3-point haul system and welded crampon patch keep you prepared for technical alpine terrain.
Outfitted with our reACTIV suspension system and a removable hipbelt, lid and framesheet, the Speed offers a comfortable yet minimalist carry for your on-route essentials. Ice-tool attachments, a tuck-away rope strap and ladder-lock crampon straps secure all your technical gear on the approach.
