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 JOKER, at one and the same time a single, double and twin rope, is now UNICORE and will delight the most experienced climbers and alpinists seeking lightness, easy running and security, and at the same time the traditionalists looking for a multi-purpose rope for ridge climbs, or other classic, mixed or snow routes.

About UNICORE

An astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, a frequent occurence in mountains, it slides and gathers over some metres. It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether ascending or descending.

About SAFE CONTROL

Change of pattern in the middle of the rope without cutting the filaments to indicate a length of rope sufficient for descending.

About DRY COVER

Dry Cover  © Beal
A process whereby every individual sheath receives a chemical treatment before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is hydrophobic, increases abrasion resistance and is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated individually increases the life of the treatment. This treatment makes the ropes more resistant against abrasion, repeated falls, heat, dust, moisture and vastly increases their durability.
