Description

Show Description

A slim line for fast and light missions. Not ideal as a project rope, but it meets both twin and half rope standards, so with 2 ropes, you can make fast progress as a team of three, get in long raps, and gain the safety margin of having two lines to work with.

  • Ultra lightweight at 36g/m.
  • Certified as a twin and half rope.
  • Pro Dry finish provides durable water and dirt protection to UIAA standard.
  • Thermo-shield treatment results in a great feel and handling characteristics.
  • Sheath proportion of 40% provides robustness to this lightweight rope.
  • Specs shown are for use as a half rope.
  • When used as a twin rope, the specs are as follows (based on tests with 2 strands): Dynamic elongation: 29% Static elongation: 5.2% Impact force: 10kN UIAA fall rating: 18

Treatment

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.

Dry (UIAA certified)
Length 70m
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.

32%
Static elongation

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

9.0%
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.

6.1kN
Linear weight 36g/m
Diameter 7.1mm
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.
