2017: The HonnSolo 11 Free Soloing Airbag Pack

Thursday, April 30, 2020
It may be too hard to solo, but not too hard to HonnSolo! Inspired by BD Athlete Alex Honnold, we’re proud to introduce the HonnSolo 11—the world’s first free soloing airbag pack. By utilizing our cutting edge JetForce technology from our avalanche airbags, we’ve created an inflatable landing pad that deploys with the push of a button.

That’s right. No more #Honnolding. It’s all about #HonnSoloing now. Designed with the help of BD Athlete Alex Honnold, The HonnSolo 11 free soloing airbag pack is forever changing the game. Whether you’re booting up for that YOLO free solo, or backcountry bouldering without a crash pad, this innovative pack is there to catch you if you fall. We’ve adapted our JetForce technology from our avalanche airbags to create the world’s first free soloing airbag pack. With the push of a button, a landing pad the exact size of a Black Diamond Mondo crash pad will inflate in 2 seconds. Then an integrated accelerometer reverses fan for controlled deflation upon impact to absorb energy. The HonnSolo’s weight is minimal at less than six pounds, plus the pack’s 11 liters allows you to bring essentials with you on route.

Note: Black Diamond does not condone free soloing. All aspects of climbing are inherently dangerous. Understand and accept the risks involved before participating. Failure to follow these warnings can result in severe injury or death.
