Black Diamond Fall 2014 Collection Wins Over A Dozen Industry Awards

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Diamond, Inc. (Nasdaq:BDE) (the "Company" or "Black Diamond"), a global leading supplier of innovative, high performance, active outdoor and action sports equipment and apparel, collected over a dozen industry and media awards at the recent Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, ISPO Munich and Snowsports Industry America tradeshows.

"In our 57 years of innovation, the designers, engineers and employees of Black Diamond have used their firsthand knowledge of climbing, skiing and mountain sports to create next-level products," said Peter Metcalf, Black Diamond CEO. "Every Black Diamond employee takes pride and shares credit for the abundance of recognition we've received for our forthcoming fall 2014 hardgoods, apparel and safety collections."

At the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, held in Salt Lake City, Utah January 22-25, JetForce, the first avalanche airbag system to use electronically controlled jet-fan inflation, was awarded "Gear of the Show" by Outside magazine, Men's Journal, GearJunkie.com and GearInstitute.com. JetForce technology represents Black Diamond's commitment to the snow safety category and will be available in specific backpacks from Black Diamond, PIEPS and POC in fall 2014.
