Pro Dry Treatment
Edelrid's Pro Dry ropes receive the highest level of protection Edelrid offer. First, Edelrid treat the core yarns, then, after the braiding process has finished, they treat the core and sheath together to produce a rope that is durably water repellent and dirt resistant, able to dry quickly, absorb virtually no water, and are resistant to freezing in cold temperatures. This finishing also improves the gliding characteristics of the individual fibers, which makes the rope more abrasion-resistant and extends its lifespan. Pro Dry is the first ever finishing process that makes it possible to produce extremely narrow diameter ropes without compromising on performance.
Thermo Shield Treatment
The Thermo Shield Treatment is a heat process that stabilises individual yarns, ensuring the rope stays soft, supple, and pleasant to use throughout its working lifetime.
