• Excellent compromise of durability and lightness
• Low impact force and high number of falls
• The rope does not swell and stays soft longer
• Escape even if the sheath is cut off
The UNICORE process permanently bonds the sheath and core of the rope together to eliminate sheath slippage, the name given to the amount of sheath that bunches up, usually at the ends of the rope, revealing the rope's inner core.
A water-repellent treatment that's applied to both the rope's core and its sheath. This makes the rope highly resistant to water absorption and prevents the penetration of harmful dust dirt and dust particles into the rope's fibres. Golden Dry ropes are ideal for use in all weather conditions, including ice and snow, where they will absorb the minimum amount of moisture, and they will last through much harsher abuse that non-treated ropes.
