Edelrid Swift Protect Pro Dry 8,9mm
As the name suggests the Swift Protect Pro Dry 8.9 is based on the now-classic Edelrid Swift, this time though Eledrid has put the emphasis on cut protection while keeping the handling and specs virtually identical. They have added aramid to the sheath, which has a higher sheath percentage. They have kept the full dry treatment, and the Thermo Shield treatment makes it light and easy to handle. The combination of the Cut protection and the already excellent handling and lightweight this is going to be the absolute go-to Alpine rope, but it doesn't have to stop there it is the perfect climbing rope for those who don’t want to stop at just one type of climbing.

Thermo Shield is a thermal stabilising process for the rope that gives it the signature EDELRID handling characteristics and feel. The rope undergoes a heat treatment cure to stabilise and harmonise the individual yarns. This treatment cannot be washed out and ensures a supple rope throughout its working life.

Pro Dry Treatment
Pro Dry treatment: absorbs virtually no water. (Water absorption < 2 %, UIAA Dry Standard.)
Edelrid has added Aramid to the rope for improved cut resistance while keeping the dynamic properties. There is no EN standard for cut resistance in dynamic ropes so Edlerid developed their own.
