A great solution for sport and alpine climbers who want a light, compact rope with great handling characteristics. Individual yarns are coated with Teflon to reduce friction. The yarns slide past each other, so each is weighted equally when the rope is loaded.
- Duo Tec pattern change at halfway point.
- Thermo Shield treatment gives it excellent handling properties, a supple feel and an impressive strength rating.
- Pro Dry finish makes this rope durably water repellent and dirt resistant.
- Meets UIAA standard water-repellent test, meaning this rope is fast-drying, absorbs virtually no water and resists freezing.
|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.
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||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.
