Beal JOKER 9.1mm UNICORE
After having been the first thin rope on the market to meet the requirements for all three standards for dynamic ropes, Beal JOKER will now benefit from the latest UNICORE technology.
The great classic for adventure climbing. Light and free-running for ease of use on long routes, on the crag and in the Alps.
Technical and robust enough to sustain the most difficult loadings, it is even better today because it now benefits from all the advantages of the UNICORE technology.
This is the multi-use rope par excellence, if you don't want to own more than one double rope, it's the COBRA II you must have. It has a low impact force (5.1kN) to minimise anchor-point loading, and a sheath of sufficient thickness to withstand the most aggressive rock, all for only 48g and a record number of falls = 16.
Specifically developed for climbing in challeging weather conditions found when mountaineering or ice climbing, MOUNTAIN line ropes benefit from 2 treatments: in addition to the sheath's DRY COVER treatment, all core strands are individually treated with water repellent coating. The combination of both treatments creates a GOLDEN DRY rope. All MOUNTAIN line ropes are GOLDEN DRY. They therefore feature the same benefits as our INTENSIVE line ropes, but with minimal water absorption and increased suppleness. All MOUNTAIN line ropes are UIAA WATER REPELLENT accredited, and are constructed using the THERMO FLUID process creating a more compact and supple rope.
The UIAA standard sets the requirements for a rope to qualify as 'UIAA WATER REPELLENT'
Brief summary of tests
A rope sample is subjected to light abrasion over its entire surface, equivalent to a few days' use.
A rope that passes this test (in a certified laboratory) qualifies as 'UIAA Water Repellent'.
Beal's Golden Dry ropes easily satisfy UIAA requirement.
