The Beal Opers 8.5mm Dry Cover features Beal's Dry Cover treatment, which is where the sheath of the rope is treated to resist water and dirt. While it's not as extensively treated as Beal's Golden Dry, it improves the longevity and handling of the rope and provides the perfect amount of protection for climbing and mountaineering in moderate to mild weather.
Beal's Unicore Treatment
The Beal Opera 8.5mm Dry Cover Rope features Beal’s unique Unicore Technology, which bonds the sheath and the core of the rope together, drastically reducing sheath slippage and making your rope much safer to use. The Unicore Treatment means that you can still safely rappel or abseil to safety if the sheath of your rope gets cut, as it won’t slip or bunch up, which causes it to become impossible to pass through your descender.
