The Performance 9.2 Unicore has a hybrid design that synthesizes the extreme needs of serious climbers. The Performance is a certified single, half and twin rope, which means this rope is the Jack and Master of all trades. It's available in Everdry or Supereverdry which helps keep this rope water and abrasion resistant, extending the life of the rope. Sport, trad, ice and alpine climbers call on the Performance when every gram counts and the slightest bit of rope drag can mean the difference between success and failure on the sharp end.

Unicore Technology

An astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. Even in the hardest conditions of use sheath slippage is suppressed. If the sheath is cut or torn, core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge it slides up the rope. It then becomes impossible to pass this area either ascending or descending. If the problem occurs near to the end of the rope the sheath may slide off completely and the user fall to the ground.

With the UNICORE process the sheath remains in place and the user may escape, either by descent or ascent, taking all necessary precautions. He/she is not stuck without a solution on the rope. The UNICORE process brings an undeniable gain in security during delicate and dangerous operations.
