- Remains compact and supple.
- Better abrasion resistance.
- Easy clipping.
- Multi purpose climbing
If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and the sheath remain attached. On a classical rope, if the sheath is cut by edge abrasion, a frequent phenomenon in the mountains, it slips and gets stuck for several meters. It then becomes impossible to pass this area, both on the ascent and descent.
This treatment stabilizes the fibers of the sheath and makes them more homogeneous. The result is a more compact and manageable rope.
