From ice climbing, to long crack routes and clip-ups , the Black Diamond Lotus is for women who climb it all, all year long. The Lotus provides four-season performance and comfort in any climbing situation with our Dual Core XP Construction™. Dual Core XP features a women’s-specific waistbelt with two thin bands of webbing around the outside of the frame and an EVA foam insert to evenly distribute load without pressure points. The Lotus is designed with four Ice Clipper slots to accommodate your tools and screws, plus four pressure-molded gear loops and a 12 kN-rated haul loop. We also added pre-threaded Forged Speed Adjust buckles on the waistbelt and leg loops (to accommodate varying layers through the seasons) and Bombshell abrasion patches (which are 20 times more durable than standard nylon).

DUAL CORE CONSTRUCTION™
Dual Core Construction combines a supportive but lightweight design with an ultra-comfortable load distribution. Dual Core Construction consists of an OpenAir waistbelt that uses two separate bands of webbing around the outside of the frame and a supportive insert in the center to allow for maximum breathability. Leg loops constructed from a single strand of full-width high-tensile nylon allow for total support and comfort when hanging in the harness.
