After having been the first thin rope on the market to meet the requirements for all three standards for dynamic ropes, JOKER will from now on 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 traditionalistslooking for a multi-purpose rope for ridge climbs, or other classic, mixed or snow routes.
ATTENTION : Used as single rope, this is not a rope to put in all hands, or in all belaying devices: Its thinness makes it a rope which absolutely demands an expert belayer. In effect, traditional belay devices will of fer reduced braking, and some automatic belay devices may not work at all.
STRONGS POINTS :
• Ultra light and free running.
• The rope doesn't bunch up, and remains supple for the long term.
• Possesses all the advantages of the UNICORE technology.
Each filament of the sheath of «Dry Cover» ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature. The durability of this treatment is given by the polymerisation, but also because of the individual treatment of each filament before the rope is made. On a Dry Cover rope, the core is not treated.
• Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
• Limited water absorption
• Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
• Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use.
