The workhorse that can take plenty of wear and tear. The SportsBraid construction makes it the ideal choice for working routes involving large numbers of falls.
- Double braid sheath construction for an especially compact and smooth structure
- Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling
EDELRID Sports Braid sheath braiding is different to the standard sheath construction in that two yarns are braided over one other yarn. The result is a very compact and smooth sheath structure. It’s this construction method that gives EDELRID Sports Braid ropes their outstanding suppleness and exceptional abrasion resistance. The Sports Braid sheath construction is ideal for ropes that are subjected to prolonged wear and abrasion, e.g. top-roping and intensive sport climbing.
Thermo Shield is the standard finishing treatment that Edelrid applies to all ropes to give them the famous EDELRID feel and handling characteristics. This thermal stabilizing process ensures that the core and sheath yarns are perfectly balanced. A special heat treatment first relaxes then shrinks the rope’s fibres. This harmonizes the individual yarns inside the rope and ensures that it remains compact and supple throughout its life. The result is a rope that does not shrink or quickly become stiff. Ropes that do not undergo a thermal stabilizing process often shrink and dry out more quickly. They tend to be stiffer than ropes that have been heat-treated.
