GABEL was founded in 1956 by the enthusiastic skier and professional athlete Galdino Beltramello. Since then, our company produces ski, trekking, and walking poles of outstanding quality constantly evolving their technical features and aesthetic design. The uninterrupted development of new product technologies has led GABEL to acquire a leading position on the national and foreign markets with a distribution network that spans over 84 countries.
During the 1997 season, GABEL launched a new line of telescopic poles for walking and trekking which over the following years proved to be of superior quality and performance and is now able to fully satisfy the customers’ demand for both professional and recreational use.
In Italy GABEL has built many significant relationships with key accounts specialized in the sports gear business. For instance, between 1978 and 1999, our company has been the exclusive supplier for the brand leader in ski repair Wintersteiger Skiservice Machines, a partnership that allowed GABEL to become the second-largest distributor in Europe only after Switzerland.
