A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
9.8mm O-Flex 50m
The O-Flex process created and used by EDELWEISS to build a particular range of climbing ropes consists in an innovative braiding system, and a single perfectly round core element. It creates a round and incredibly flexible rope. This climbing rope will keep its flexibility and perfect cohesion throughout its life. Tests have shown that on artificial climbing structure the O-flex process multiplies by 2 to 3 the rope life span. This 9.8mm model is designed specifically for top-roping & indoor climbing.

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.
