TIGER 10mm is an example of multipurpose: in climbing it's the introductory rope for those starting to use thin ropes.
Benefitting from UNICORE technology and available in both DRY COVER and GOLDEN DRY it becomes the perfect rope for all adventures.
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 DRY COVER
A process whereby every individual sheath strand 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 ropes more resistant against abrasion, repeated falls, heat, dust, moisture and vastly increases their durability.
DRY COVER ropes can be found in our INTENSIVE LINE range.
About GOLDEN DRY
A process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated increases the longevity of the treatment. A GOLDEN DRY rope combines 2 treatments: the cores treatment is added to the DRY COVER sheath treatment, this helps to achieve an astonishgly durable and waterproof rope.
GOLDEN DRY ropes can be found in our MOUNTAIN LINE range.
Why, and in what sense, "introductory"?
Advanced ropes are much more complicated. With LED screens and 4G.
10mm is thin?
Yup, in 1990...!
I'm genuinely surprised by the price. Very little info, does it improve on previous stiff handling of unicore ropes?
My first rope I actually owned myself was a mammut galaxy 10 dry 50m in 1992, apart from this being unicore and 70m, the TIGER seems utterly unremarkable and no better than I bought 30 years ago. What's the deal with this rope??
Why no information, is it a stub article to be expanded later?
