Description

The great classic for adventure climbing.
Light and free-running for ease of use on long routes, on the crag and in the Alps. Technical and robust enough to sustain the most difficult loadings, it is even better today because it now benefits from all the advantages of the UNICORE technology.

This is the multi-use rope par excellence, if you don't want to own more than one double rope, it's the COBRA you must have. It has a low impact force (5,1 kN) to minimise anchor-point loading, and a sheath of sufficient thickness to withstand the most aggressive rock, all for only 48 g and a record number of falls = 16.
STRONG POINTS:
• Excellent compromise between strength and lightness.
• Low impact force and raised number of falls sustained.
• The rope doesn't bunch up and remains supple for the long term.
• Allows escape by abseil even if the sheath is cut.

Crash Test of 8.6mm Cobra and 9.1 Joker

No voice, but the demo speaks for itself as Beal cuts a traditional rope and a rope with Unicore technology. The difference is certainly dramatic.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
