One of the skinniest, this supple rope meets testing standards to certify it as a single, half or twin. A solution for ice and alpine climbers who want a light rope to keep their options open. The yarn and sheath treatments provide excellent handling during its lifetime.
- Thermo Shield is designed to improve the ropes handling characteristics.
- Dry Shield coating is water and dirt-resistant to extend the rope's lifespan.
- Pro Shield finish coats individual yarns with Teflon to reduce friction between them. The yarns slide past each other, so each is weighted equally when loaded.
- Specs shown are for single rope tests.
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.
