RFID / NFC Option


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.

WeighMyRack Gear Review First hand review

I’ve used the Apus Pro exclusively for all ice and mixed routes this season. I’ve definitely gotten out quite a bit and have done a couple new routes with them and they’re sweet! The Apus Pro has no twists, is very dry, and it’s easy to manage. What more can you ask for?

Rock and Run Gear Review no rating given

The Apus epitomises the handling and quality that Edelrid ropes are famed for. An ideal high performance rope for when weight saving is important or for a multi-discipline climber who wants just one set of half-ropes. Pros include the Apus’ minimal in weight and diameter, the Pro Dry finish for outstanding dirt and water resistance, Thermo Shield treatment for perfect handling and Bluesign® standard for the environmentally conscious.
