Show Description

Tough enough to work the moves, light enough to send the redpoint. The Ion is a high-performance lightweight rope that's a good choice to bring to the crag.

  • Thermo-dynamic balancing heat treats the yarn to limit sheath slippage, help the rope remain supple, and keep its elongation properties over time.
  • Drycore™ process treats the core yarns to reduce yarn-on-yarn abrasion and moisture absorption. It creates a rope with excellent durability and handling.
  • Pattern change indicates middle mark.
  • Weight of 57g/m.

Tech specs

Show Tech specs
Type Single (‹ 9.6mm)

Dry ropes have a water-resistant treatment on both core and sheath. Dry (UIAA certified) ropes have both core and sheath treated, plus meet the UIAA Water Repellent standard by passing a stringent test where a soaked rope cannot absorb more than 5% of the rope's weight.

Dynamic elongation

Maximum elongation in the first UIAA test fall, where a weight is attached to the rope and then dropped. Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.

Static elongation

In controlled tests, a weight is suspended from the rope (not dropped). Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.

Impact force

The amount of force, in kN, that the first UIAA fall puts on the falling object. Less impact force puts less force on the climber, belayer, and protection during a fall.

Linear weight 57g/m
Diameter 9.4mm
Halfway pattern change Yes
UIAA fall rating

Indicates the number of consecutive falls a rope withstood during testing in a controlled environment. The number is for reference only, and does not indicate the number of falls a rope will withstand during actual use or over its lifespan.
