The Diablo 9.8m Rope uses UNICORE® technology for easy handling and clipping as well as prolonged rope life and increased safety levels. Due to its very fluid running sheath this rope performs even better when pulling slack and clipping than 'classic' ropes of smaller diameter and lower weight. The 9.8mm diameter of this rope gives it a best use for expert climbers and experienced and vigilant belayers as the easy running quality doesn't provide the same assurance on belay as a larger diameter rope.

Features

Instruction should be sought from professionals in the safe use of this piece of equipment. This equipment is designed for recreational use and should not be used for industrial applications.
Care
  • A rope must not be allowed contact with chemical agents, particularly acids which may destroy the fibres without visible evidence
  • Avoid unnecessary exposure to UV, store the rope in a cool, shaded place, away from dampness and direct heat
  • It is preferable to use a rope sack for transporting and for laying the rope out at the base of the cliff to protect against dirt and reduce twisting
  • If the rope is dirty, it may be washed in clear cold water, if necessary with a washing agent designed for delicate textiles, using a brush made with synthetic bristles
  • If the rope is wet, after use or washing, leave to dry in a cool, shaded place
  • Before and after each use inspect the rope visually and manually along its entire length
  • This product must be inspected periodically and meticulously, every 3 months if in frequent use, annually for occasional use
  • The rope is personal equipment. During any use away from you it may be subject to grave damage, which may not be visible.
  • If a rope is cut into a number of lengths, repeat and affix to each new end the markings of the original ends
  • Retired the rope:
    • if it has held a major fall, approaching fall factor 2
    • if inspection reveals or even indicates damage to the core
    • if the sheath is very worn
    • if it has been in contact with any active or dangerous chemicals
    • if there is the slightest doubt about its security
Technologies Used

UNICORE technology: an astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together so the sheath remains in place allowing you to escape through either ascent or descent whilst taking the necessary precautions. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, a frequent occurrence in the mountains, it slides and gathers over some metres and it then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether ascending or descending. UNICORE technology prevents all sheath slippage and is therefore particularly useful in wet snow and ice conditions such as you may encounter in alpine and ice climbing where the risk of sheath slippage is largely increased. The UNICORE process is compatible with the waterproofing and anti-abrasion treatments on ropes and also provides a durable resistance to moisture.

Thermo Fluid: an infrared treatment which stabilises the sheath fibres and, therefore, makes the yarns more homogenous. The result is a more compact, better handling rope.
