Jammu and Kashmir – Leh – 27 June 2023: The IIT Mandi mountain biking club, in partnership with Axio Biosolutions, blazed a trail through the magnificent landscapes of Leh in a remarkable display of endurance and discovery. In addition to embracing the spirit of adventure, this breathtaking 14-day excursion covering 1,354 kilometers also demonstrated the ground-breaking Axio Advanced Stop Bleeding Kit (ASK).
Axio Biosolutions, a renowned MedTech company from Bengaluru, provided the riders with their cutting-edge Axio ASK to emphasize the importance of safety and readiness. Axio ASK, a ground-breaking technology revolutionizing the trauma sector, uses sophisticated chitosan hemostatic dressings to effectively stop bleeding.

The Leh Ride presented riders with the task of crossing some of the highest motorable mountain passes in the world, including the legendary Khardung La and Chang La, against a backdrop of stunning mountain passes and cultural diversity. Eight outstanding students who made up the IIT Mandi squad underwent grueling training and conditioning to ensure they were ready for the challenging experience that lay ahead of them.
The IIT Mandi team encountered frontline soldiers who are unwaveringly committed to defending the area during the Leh Ride. Axio Biosolutions sent these brave people 10 Axio ASK bleeding control kits as a token of appreciation and support. Axio Biosolutions strives to empower those on the front lines to respond quickly and efficiently to stressful occurrences, thereby lessening the impact of accidents and saving lives.
