announcement by manufacturers
One rope that complies with all three rope standards. At just 8.9 mm the Swift is one of the thinnest single ropes on the market, making it the best choice for avid sport climbers looking for minimal weight and diameter as well as mountain guides and mountaineers looking for a rope that can master all climbing disciplines on rock and ice. EDELRID Pro Shield treatment protects the core and sheath against grim and wet while the Thermo Shield ensures perfect handling and flexibility. Attention: this rope is not suitable for working routes or top roping.
Extremely light yet robust, the Falcon is ideal for hard routes, on-sight, flash or redpointing when every gram counts. With our new special Pro Shield treatment, the Falcon is ideal for mixed routes and ice climbing. EDELRID's Thermo Shield treatment gives the rope perfect handling properties.
A universal lightweight rope for climbing in alpine, crag or indoor conditions. With EDELRID's new and highly efficient Pro Shield treatment, the Eagle offers the perfect protection for wet or dirty conditions. Equally at home on fast alpine ascents where snow or rain can be expected, or on a warm sunny day at the crag, the Eagle fulfils the task with flying colours. EDELRID's Thermo Shield handling coupled with the Pro Shield helps provide excellent handling at an amazingly low weight of 62 g per meter.
This half rope unites the advantages of low weight construction and a low impact force design, creating quality and longevity. With the slightly thicker sheath than the Merlin, the Kestrel is particularly suitable for alpine mountaineering and ice climbing. The Kestrel's water- and dirt-repelling properties are provided by the Dry Shield finish. The EDELRID Thermo Shield finish adds the superb handling properties.
For those who value minimum diameter and weight with a maximum
degree of strength and safety. At 44 g per meter, you
still have comfortable handling while belaying. Thanks to the
water, dirt and dust resistant Dry Shield treatment, the Merlin
provides unrivalled quality and performance even when the
going gets tough. In addition, the Thermo Shield treatment
ensures optimum handling even in icy weather conditions.
