7.8mm Apus 50m Dry
The Edelrid Apus complies with both twin and double rope standards, making it the ideal rope for alpine, mixed and extreme mountaineering where every gram counts. Despite a very low weight of just over 2 kg for a 50 m length, the Apus can hold an amazing 20 double rope test falls and 8-9 in the twin rope test. This makes the Apus one of the lightest twin ropes on the market with high a degree of safety. The Edelrid Pro Shield treatment keeps the rope dry and dirt free while the Thermo Shield treatment helps keep the rope supple even after heavy and prolonged use.
