Edelrid Swift Eco Dry 8,9mm Rope - 70m - assorted colours

Edelrid Swift Eco Dry 8,9mm Rope - 70m - assorted colours

Symbolic picture: The color of the delivered rope may differ. And as the color of the leftover yarns cannot be planned in advance, each Swift Eco Dry 8,9 mm production batch has a unique color mix. This means that each rope is unique.

The world's first ever PFC-free rope that meets the UIAA Water Repellent standard. Made from high-quality recycled yarns left over from Edelrid's production. Each batch is unique. Ropes don't get eco-friendlier than this.

  • Certified as twin, double and single rope
  • Pro Dry for outstanding dirt and water resistance
  • Water absorption less than 2% as per UIAA Water Repellent Test
  • Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling
  • Not suitable for working routes or top roping
  • 3D lap coiled so you can use it straight away, without kinking and tangling
Pro Dry
Untreated ropes can absorb up to 50 % of their own weight in water. When wet, such ropes become extremely heavy, difficult to handle and may freeze in cold conditions. Moreover, their safety reserves are compromised. This is why impregnated ropes are used for activities where ropes are more likely to get wet, such as ice climbing or mountaineering.
Pro Dry is a new finishing process, which provides a solution to this problem. First the core yarns are impregnated. Then, once braiding is completed, the finished rope (core and sheath) is impregnated again. In a final stage, the impregnation is thermally fixed. The result is a rope that is durably water repellent and dirt resistant. Pro Dry ropes are particularly quick drying, absorb virtually no water and are resistant to freezing in cold temperatures. Due to their minimal water absorption (1-2 %) in accordance with the UIAA water-repellent test, Pro Dry ropes hardly increase in weight. As such, they continue to perform well and provide high safety reserves even in wet conditions.
In addition, Edelrid's Pro Dry finish 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.
Whether mixed routes on north faces, ice climbing on frozen waterfalls or sport routes at the crag, the ropes in our Pro Dry series excel due to their outstanding handling, long lifespan and high safety reserves.

Thermo Shield
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.
