Special gym rope with extremely abrasion-resistant polyester sheath. The ideal rope for intensive training in the gym.
3D Lap Coil
The new Edelrid 3D Lap Coil technique makes uncoiling the rope for the first time unnecessary. Edelrid extended their production site with a brand new lap coiling machine that specially winds up their ropes. In combination with the thought-out design of the packaging provided with every Edelrid rope, it has now become super easy to instantly start your climb using your new rope - You do not have to do more than pulling it out. The marking on the rope as well as a detailed description on the packaging additionally ensure that you do things right and can use the full potential of the rope without annoying twisting and tangling.
The sheath of Edelrid Sports Braid ropes has two yarns braided over one. This is different to a standard sheath construction where two yarns are braided over two other yarns. The result is a particularly compact and smooth sheath structure. These ropes are particularly abrasion resistant, glide easily through each piece of protection and offer incomparably supple handling. The Sports Braid sheath construction is ideal for ropes that are subject to prolonged wear and abrasion, e.g. top-roping and intensive sport climbing.
LinkTec technology involves bonding the sheath and the core of the rope together during braiding. This reduces sheath slippage to a minimum and significantly prolongs the lifespan of a rope. Edelrid has been using this process for their ropes for climbing walls for a long time, as the ropes have to withstand prolonged wear and abrasion during top-roping.
Thermo Shield is the standard treatment that Edelrid applies to all their ropes. The thermal stabilizing process ensures that the core and sheath yarns are perfectly balanced. A special heat treatment cure first relaxes then shrinks the rope’s fibers. This harmonizes the gliding characteristics of the yarns inside the rope and ensures that it remains compact and supple throughout its life. It also ensures that the rope does not shrink or becomes stiff.
