7.8mm Elite Unicore 70m 2xDry
Its thinness and lightness are its first assets in the race to the superfluous gram, for all that the durability is not sacrificed thanks to a thick sheath and the Unicore system, the whole with a texture of classic braiding and the Supereverdry process. Here is thus the 7,8mm ELITE for the eponym mountaineers.

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.
