Description

Beal 9.8mm x 60m Diablo dynamic unicore rope

Diablo 9.8mm Unicore is the first outdoor use dynamic rope to receive the Unicore treatment. Its diameter will provide reassurance to the majority of climbers, while its slick sheath and supple handling give the sensation of using a much thinner rope.
This rope is good for all, being effective for the leader and reassuring for the belayer

Key Features

Astonishing new technology which binds the sheath to the core without affecting the ease of use and suppleness of the rope. Even under the most adverse conditions, sheath slippage is reduced or totally eliminated, especially in such instances as top roping or active belaying. Should the sheath be cut or torn, the sheath and core will remain bonded together.

Dynamic ropes benefiting from the UNICORE process suffer less sheath slippage, stay supple, have good handling and have a longer lifetime. By having a more free-running sheath than on a ‘classic’ rope, friction against the rock and through karabiners is reduced, resistance to abrasion is improved, and the effort of pulling slack and clipping is greatly lessened. The climber has the sensation of handling a much thinner and lighter rope because of the increased running fluidity, whilst retaining the assurance of a rope of higher diameter.

What is Unicore?

Astonishing new technology which binds the sheath to the core without affecting the ease of use and suppleness of the rope.

Even under the most adverse conditions, sheath slippage is reduced or totally eliminated, especially in such instances as top roping or active belaying.

Should the sheath be cut or torn, the sheath and core will remain bonded together.

During regular operations during caving or rope access abrasion due to a rough edge can cause it to be cut and slip, sometimes in excess of 1 meter.

The astonishing UNICORE process allows the sheath and the core to stay bonded together allowing the user to be able to pass any damaged section using proper techniques, he doesn't remain stuck on his rope.

The UNICORE process enhances safety when rope is used in extreme situations.

This is possible due to the fact that this new process:

  • Sheath slippage is eliminated.
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut.
  • Makes rope cutting easy with a simple blade without any heating.
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%.
