Tendon Hattrick 8.6mm Complete Shield
The Tendon Elite Hattrick 8.6 climbing rope is particularly strong and resistant, and certified as half and twin rope. The Tendon Elite Hattrick is resistant to abrasions and rock damage thanks to the parallel yarns interwoven with braided PA fibre at it’s core. This design results in not only a more compact rope, but reduces the sheath slippage too.The Sheath itself is made by the SBS braiding system, ensuring the outer part of the rope is less resistant to abrasions; however should the sheath become damaged, this interwoven core provides sufficient support where it’s needed. All in all solid, sturdy and supportive rope.

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.
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 as well.
Complete Shield is Tendon’s proprietary form of rope protection. Named Nanotech Teflon Eco technology, it is a special coating made up of tiny particles which help to block out water and dirt, and resist abrasions. This coating is applied to every single fibre in the core and sheath of the rope to provide maximum protection.
