A pictoral representation of UIAA-101 and EN-892 standards for ropes.
9.4mm Fusion Ion R 80m
In this, our latest version of the renowned Ion dynamic rope, we retained the signature characteristics climbers always raved about: the comfortable handling sheath and the ideal 9.4 mm diameter. But to enhance its performance profile, we radically updated the construction. We like to call it a crossover artist within our Fusion series- it performs well across multiple climbing disciplines without playing favorites.

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.
