announcement by Petzl
Petzl's new range of climbing ropes have been developed to meet the needs of today's climbers. Whether you are looking for a single rope, a half/twin rope or a rope with multiple certification (single and half/twin), you will find one that meets your needs. Each rope diameter corresponds to specific activities: gym, snow and ice climbing, rock and incorporate the latest technologies while being developed to meet Petzl's quality requirements.
The Petzl rope line was developed with Petzl's requirements for quality and performance, meeting the needs of users engaged in any vertical activity. With this in mind, each rope is crafted according to precise specifications suited to its use. Further, all Petzl ropes benefit from an approach that focuses on:
- durability in terms of number of falls held, and overall abrasion resistance
- optimizing the elongation necessary to achieve the desired shock absorption
- excellent grip for greater fluidity in handling and use in belay devices
- optimal weight
DuraTec Dry Treatment
Dry treatment, making the rope more resistant to water, dirt and abrasion. Handling, grip and other characteristics are retained longer in cold, wet conditions.
Special thermal treatment stabilizes the core strands and improves consistency. Provides excellent grip and handling over time.
Ultrasonic welding bonds the core and sheath together at the rope ends. Gives greater durability and avoids frayed ends.
Specific coil makes the rope ready to use straight from the store.
