Made without the extra cost of dyed yarn, but with all the features of a good rope, the Equinox is an affordable option that doesn't sacrifice quality. The rope offers excellent knotability and smooth clipping, that suits sport climbing or multipitch use.
- The standard dry-treated core minimizes internal friction, but the sheath does not have a dry coating. This means it is not optimal for wet conditions.
|Ideal for||Rock climbing|
|Type||Single (10mm ›)|
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.
Maximum elongation in the first UIAA test fall, where a weight is attached to the rope and then dropped. Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.
In controlled tests, a weight is suspended from the rope (not dropped). Higher numbers indicate stretchier ropes.
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.
|Halfway pattern change||No|
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.
