9.1mm Airliner 80m Bipattern 2xDry
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.

As the middle passes through your hands you can actually feel the change as well, so even if you're not paying attention to the cord you will likely have a sense for when your partner is all of the way out there. The new colors are rad too... pretty simple really... just a kick ass rope made better! This will be my go-to for the next several seasons until they find a way to improve it again!
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.
