Tendon Ambition - 10mm

All Tendon ropes contain a microchip that links up to your smartphone or computer, which allows you to register your rope and provides you with all the information about it, such as the date of manufacture and specifications. Tenote also gives you advice on how to maintain your rope and updates you on any changes in the rope’s technologies.
Tendon use a special bonding process which binds the sheath and core of the rope together in the last 15mm, so they become one unit. This increases durability and longevity, and reduces slippage.
Standard Shield is Tendon’s proprietary technology which provides basic protection from water and dirt to the rope’s sheath. The protection is integrated into the fibres at an early stage in production, which gives it a long-lasting finish.
SBS - Simple Braiding System
The Simple Braiding System is a special technique used in sheath braiding, where the fibres are woven individually, instead of as a pair, which is standard practice. Not only does SBS make rope more durable and abrasion-resistant, it makes it smoother and easier to handle.
The midpoint of the rope is marked with a coloured band, which helps with handling, belaying and descending, but doesn’t compromise the structure of the rope.
