Swift Protect Pro Dry: A new innovation from EDELRID Product News

© Edelrid

EDELRID are widely regarded as one of the world's most innovative rope manufactures. For 2020, we've taken this one step further. Check out this video of Michele Caminati taking a rope shearing fall off Elder Statesmen, fortunately there were no lasting injuries.

EDELRID may now have a solution...

The Swift Protect Pro Dry on the face of it is identical to our normal Swift Pro Dry. It is a triple-rated, 8.9mm, dry treated rope ideal for anything from sport climbing redpoints to alpine mountaineering.

So, why the word 'Protect'?

The Swift Protect has Aramid fibers incorporated into it's sheath. This gives this 8.9mm rope the same cut resistance as a big and bulky 10.0mm rope. Despite the Aramid reinforcement, the Swift Protect handles and has the exact same elongation values as the standard Swift Pro Dry.

  • Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling
  • When used as a single rope, not suitable for top-rope or workout climbing
  • Permanently water-repellent and dirt-resistant, thanks to the Pro Dry finish
  • Water absorption less than 2% as per UIAA Water Repellent Test
  • 3D lap coiling enables instant use without tangles
  • Higher sheath content and aramid processing for increased cut resistance under load, e.g. over sharp edges
  • Certified as a twin, double and single rope
  • £200 RRP for 60m length
