Already considered to be the must-have rope for ice climbers and expert alpinists alike for its extreme fluidity and very low impact force, ICE LINE is henceforward available with the new UNICORE technology. Thanks to adherence of the core and sheath, ICE LINE benefits from extra security - indispensable on thin rope.
An amazing manufacturing process that connects the rope sheath with the rope core without affecting the characteristic rope smoothness. If the rope sheath is cut or torn, the sheath and core remain connected. If the sheath of a classic rope is damaged by friction on edges, it slips and shifts over several meters. It then becomes impossible to overcome this point - both during ascent and abseiling.
Each thread of the core and sheath of Golden Dry rope is impregnated before the rope is manufactured. The impregnation is polymerized at high temperature. The durability of this treatment is achieved by the polymerization but also by treating each individual thread before rope manufacture. A Golden Dry rope combines two treatments: in addition to the Dry Cover treatment of the sheath, the core is also impregnated. This results in an amazingly robust and water repellent rope.
UIAA Water Repellent
Beal ropes with Golden Dry treatment absorb less than 3% water in UIAA standard tests.
