This dynamic climbing rope is highly robust. Its 9.8 mm diameter lets you progress in total safety, confident that you’re properly belayed. For your companion on the ground, things are made easier by this rope’s belaying comfort, which gives both climbers peace of mind. And here’s the icing on the cake: this model promises impressive durability, courtesy of its exclusive Triaxiale construction. The expert’s view? “A rope is subject to all kinds of environmental influences – falls, rubbing against the belaying equipment, etc.” says MILLET’s ropes product manager. “It’s a matter of physics, with chains of molecules that don’t remain in their initial state – the internal filaments that make up the core of the rope lose their properties and efficiency. Experience shows that, thanks to the Triaxiale structure, the filaments are neatly arranged, not left to move about freely, and so they sustain less wear by rubbing.” The bottom line? A longer product lifespan. Did you know… what the TRX stands for in this rope’s name? “Triaxiale – which is a special, and totally exclusive way of making the rope core,” explains the product manager. This manufacturing process requires machines that are able to braid the cores and not just to twist the polyamide threads. “These internal braids vary in number, depending on the final external diameter. We now know that these braids protect the core strands from internal abrasion.” Yes, internal – a rope gradually wears out from the inside, because an alpine rope is essentially thousands of grouped filaments, finer than hair, which are twisted, heat-treated, etc.
