The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
The X-CHANGE FLEX has got the same front as the X-CHANGE PRO, but with the bar and heel of the model TIROL. The advantages of this model are greater comfort, more space in your bag and quick size adjustment which makes it more versatile. The model is favored by hire shops and ice-tower climbers alike.
- Flexible bar
- Interchangeable frontpoints (mono- or duopoint)
- Professional binding with steel front bale and heel lever

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
