Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Looking for low weight and high durability? The Swift Protect ticks both those boxes. One of the skinniest around, it meets testing standards to certify it as a single, half, or twin rope and weighs in at a scant 53g/m. The sheath has aramid fibres braided into it, a material commonly found in ballistic armour, resulting in extremly high resistance to abrasion and cutting - a first of its kind in dynamic ropes. The combination of lightness and durability are great for projecting and hard redpoints on rock, ice, or in the alpine.

  • Protect sheath with aramid and polyamide fibres is highly cut-resistant
  • 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
  • 3D lap coiled so you can use it straight away without kinking or tangling
  • Meets UIAA standard water-repellent test, meaning this rope is fast-drying, absorbs virtually no water and resists freezing
  • Specs shown are for use as a single rope
  • When used as a half rope, the specs are as follows: Dynamic elongation: 26% Static elongation: 5.2% Impact force: 7.3kN UIAA fall rating: 18
  • When used as a twin rope, the specs are as follows (based on tests with 2 strands): Dynamic elongation: 25% Static elongation: 3.5% Impact force: 11.8kN UIAA fall rating: 30
