8.8mm Argon 70m 2xDry
The Argon is the skinniest and newest single rope in our dynamic line. This triple certified rope is ideal for the climber who enjoys alpine, ice, sport, and mixed routes. Like our other skinny ropes, the Argon has a tighter braid pattern which helps it outlast other competitors in this diameter range. Available with our Double-Dry treatment and Bi-Color option.
Note – This rope is not recommended for top-roping or working of routes due to its small diameter. All equipment MUST be rated to accept 8.8mm diameter ropes. ALWAYS test in a safe and controlled setting before climbing. For use by expert climbers only.

RFID and NCF
This technology can be helpful if you are a gym or professional business where you'd like to track the usage and age of your ropes.
RFID is how items are uniquely identified using radio waves (Radio Frequency Identification). It's for 1-way communication from 10cm to 100m away depending on the frequency. Example: Airport Baggage.
NFC is a subset of RFID that is restrained to close proximity communication typically less than 10cm (Near Field Communication). NFC chips can operate a 2-way signal to exchange information. Example: Apple Pay.
