Beal 8.6mm x 60m Cobra II Unicore Golden Dry Rope - Blue Information

Season : SS21

Brand : BEAL

Code : 5067703

The 8.6mm Cobra is continuing to be Beal's best workhorse half rope. Solid and dependable and is the great classic for a high number of multitudes of climbing. It's technical and robust enough to sustain the most difficult loadings and is now even better because it now benefits from all the advantages of the 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 features Golden Dry technology, a process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured. This helps to achieve an astonishingly durable and waterproof rope.

  • Excellent compromise between strength and lightness
  • Low impact force and raised number of falls sustained
  • The rope doesn’t bunch up and remains supple for the long term
  • Allows escape by abseil even if the sheath is cut
  • Use: All sorts of mountaineering, winter climbing, alpine climbing, trad climbing
  • Type: Half
  • Number of UIAA Falls: 18 - 20 (Beal Guarantee: 16)
  • Weight per Metre: 48 g
  • Impact Force: 4.85 - 4.9 kN (Beal Guarantee: 5.1 kN)
  • Dynamic Elongation During First Fall: 35 %
  • Static Elongation: 11.5 %
  • Sheath Slippage: 0 mm
  • Length: 60m
Technical Information

UNICORE:

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. 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. It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether ascending or descending.

GOLDEN DRY:

Process whereby every individual core and sheath strand is treated with a hydrophobic chemical formula before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is polymerised at high temperatures. This polymerisation process together with every strand being coated increases the longevity of the treatment. A GOLDEN DRY rope combines 2 treatments: the core’s treatment is added to the DRY COVER sheath treatment. This helps to achieve an astonishingly durable and waterproof rope.

A GOLDEN DRY rope:

  • Is more frost and water resistant
  • Gains very little weight in humid conditions
  • Improves rope suppleness through carabiners and belay devices
  • Is more abrasion resistant during normal use

BEAL ropes with a GOLDEN DRY treatment absorb less than 3% of water when tested to the UIAA’s standards:

  • A rope sample is subjected to light abrasion over its entire surface; equivalent to a few days’ use
  • It is soaked for 15 minutes following a precise procedure
  • The amount of absorbed water must not be greater than 5% of the sample’s weight
  • With less than 3% of water absorption, BEAL’s GOLDEN DRY ropes easily satisfy the UIAA’s requirements
