Maxim 9.1mm Airliner 2xDry

9.1mm Airliner 60m 2xDry

Maxim/New England


no ratings


The Airliner is ultra-light, ultra-skinny and is perfect for quick ascents on long pitches. But don’t let Airliner’s small size and light weight fool you. It may be small but it does not sacrifice an ounce of performance. The Airliner has the same durablity that you have come to expect from MAXIM® Dynamic Ropes. All Airliner ropes come standard with the Endura Dry 2x dry treatment. Airliner is dual-certified as both a single and a half rope.

Jonathan Siegrist Gear Review no rating given just a review

One of the things I love about Maxim Ropes (including the Airliner) is that they have low static and dynamic elongation without sacrificing too much impact force. Ever get tired of pulling up your rope to get back on route, then letting go and sinking down ten more feet? Or how about top-roping a route and falling at the second or third bolt only to drop to the ground-- even with a tight belay. The Airliner is not nearly this stretchy (no bungie cord), and yet still gives a soft catch.

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.
