Kahtoola, Inc is the proud founding sponsor of the RumbleX.
Kahtoola was founded by Danny Giovale in Flagstaff, AZ in 2001 with the debut of their legendary KTS aluminum crampons. He founded Kahtoola after surviving a life-changing experience in the Dolomites of Italy during the 1990s when he and his brother climbed Campanile Basso. They have shown a commitment to non-profit organizations through their Kahtoola for the people program that gives 1% from the sale of every product to projects that work to preserve indigenous mountain cultures worldwide.
Wildlands Network, founding producer of the RumbleX
RumbleX was born out of the continental wildways treks of Wildlands Network co-founder, wildways ultratrekker, and author John Davis. Wildlands Network works to protect and connect wildlife, their habitats and movement corridors across the North American continent—for animals on the move and the ecosystems they depend upon—especially critically endangered species and apex predators like Jaguar, Mexican Wolf, Red Wolf, and Cougar.
The leading edge of conservation science and partnerships are at the heart of what we do every day. We welcome you to engage in the adventure, share, take action, #RewildYourHeart and find #RoomtoRoam with us.
