"The Edelweiss Spirit 8.8 mm rope is the perfect tool to reach ambitious climbing goals. This thin single rope combines an ultralight weight and a thick/durable sheath. In fact the rope is compact and strong, the best of 2 worlds. The spirit 8.8 mm is also certified as a half rope to be used in all mountaineering activities.

Weight: 51 g/m

Impact force: 8kN Single, 6kN Half

UIAA falls: 5 Single, 18 Half

SE = Supereverdry

Unicore

CE and UIAA Certified - Single and Half

UNICORE: An astonishing process, bonding the sheath and core without affecting the rope’s suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, the sheath can slide and gather along the rope length, creating a potentially dangerous situation. With the UNICORE process, the sheath remains in place and the rope intact and fully functional.

TREATMENTS:

SUPEREVERDRY

Edelweiss was the first climbing rope manufacturer to apply a Supereverdry treatment to all fibers in the core and sheath. A Supereverdry treated rope barely absorbs any water in wet conditions, dries quicker, and doesn't stiffen up in freezing temperatures. Comparative tests demonstrate the superiority of this treatment over competing methods of other manufacturers with respect to durability of the treatment as well as efficiency.

Supereverdry treated ropes exceed the new UIAA WATER REPELLENT standard.

UIAA WATER REPELLENT

To succeed in this testing performed in a certified laboratory, the rope must absorb less than 5% of its weight after exposure to a severe water flow for 15 minutes. The results obtained by the Supereverdry treated ropes are 0.8 to 1.4% (average 1.1%) compared to the 40-50% absorbed by the non-treated ropes."
