Made from high-quality yarns left over from manufacturing. These yarns are usually disposed of unused only because of their colour variations. Woven together, they make the Transformer both environmentally sane, and uniquely beautiful. Dry treated with superDry coating, it handles well and can be used as an all-round cord for rock, ice and snow.
- Made with re-purposed transfer yarns which offer the same strength as un-dyed yarns but are good for your wallet and the planet.
- Lap coiled for tangle-free, first use.
- Dry coated to improve durability and handling characteristics.

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.
