Beal Cobra II Unicore 8.6mm x 50m Half Rope Description
Brand : Beal
Season : Perennial
Code : 5014627
The Cobra continues to be Beal's best workhorse half rope. Solid, dependable and robust enough to sustain high loadings. This classic rope is now even better because it now has all the benefits of Beal's new Unicore technology.
The Unicore technology effectively links the core and the sheath of these dynamic ropes in a way that broadly limits movement between the two parts so that they work better together. Unicore ropes eliminate sheath slippage, allow for safe escape should the sheath be cut, makes rope cutting easy with a simple blade without heating and reduces shrinkage in water by more than 50%. Unicore ropes stay more supple, more agreeable to handle and have a longer lifetime.
The Beal Cobra 8.6mm ll Unicore also has dry cover, meaning each filament of the sheath is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. A Dry Cover treatment repels dirt and moisture and helps resist abrasion, making it an ideal climbing rope for UK conditions. On a dry cover rope the core is not treated.
