A hyper static and ultralight 8.7mm rope or for those who don’t like to carry too much!
Light as a feather and extremely durable due to the thick rope sheath.
The highly cut- and abrasion resistant fibers (Dyneema) in the sheath and the lightweight core make this rope a perfect combination.
It floats easily and is ultra-light for its diameter.
The fibers are water repellent and the rope stay light when wet.
A hyper static cord has minimal elasticity! It cannot absorb the energy of a fall!
Due to the high-strength and very static fibres, the rope cannot and is not certified according to personal protection equipment (PPE) to protect against falls from a height!
The ropes are tested according to EN564 but do not meet the diameter requirements of this norm which covers only ropes up to 8mm.
Proudly produced and developed in Switzerland by a certified manufacturer for personal protective equipment.

It is not recommended to use this rope for dry canyons in dry condition due to the Dyneema in the rope sheath.
However, tests have shown that abseils up to 50m on dry ropes with a standard sized figure-8 kind of device can not damage the rope fibers due to heat generated by the friction of the abseil device.
