This double rope is proud to be the lightest in the Triaxiale range: 39 g per meter! Designed for expert alpinists, it’s given a Hydrophobic treatment to prevent water absorption (so it’s still light to carry in wet conditions). There is now a UIAA test for this type of rope. The rope is placed on a sloping surface, sprinkled with water, and weighed (pre and post shower). It passes the test if it absorbs no more than 5% of its weight in water. Our Pro Alpine only retains 2%! To achieve this excellent result, we treat all the rope’s constituent threads: both the internal ones (core) and external ones (sheath). They are then polymerized at room temperature so that the effects of the process are long-lasting. Buy it for: The Pro Alpine is the winter rope par excellence, because it’s a season when we carry more weight (because we need more garments and equipment). It’s also the rope for large-scale expeditions – abroad or closer to home. If, for example, you’re going long-haul in the Mont Blanc Massif, a lighter load is highly appreciable.
