Tough enough to work the moves, light enough to get the redpoint. The Fusion Ion is a high-performance rope that's substantial enough to bring cragging, and light enough to carry in to a distant outcrop and frozen waterfall. It's a good balance of strength, versatility and smooth handling.
- DryCore treatment on core yarns reduces yarn-on-yarn abrasion and moisture absorption, so your rope maintains its strength characteristics.
- DryCoat protects from water absorption, which reduces weight, prevents freezing, and slows wear on the sheath to a noticeable degree.
- 9.4 diameter is good for intermediate climbers, but not too thin for beginners to handle.
|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||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.
