Spelenium 8.5 mm Unicore rope
Low stretch rope (type B) perfectly adapted to caving. It's ease of use comes from it's thin diameter and remarkable suppleness characteristic of a type B rope. The UNICORE process which permanently bonds the sheath to the core prevents any slippage of one over the other. Should the sheath get torn due to abrasion, it still remains glued to the core without any slippage. This allows the user to escape either on his way up or down.
The key points of the Spelenium 8.5mm UNICORE are:
- Soft to the touch and extreme suppleness for a type B rope.
- Ease of use even for light users.
- Enhanced safety as a result of the UNICORE process.
