The Beal Cobra II Unicore Dry Cover 8.6mm is a technical and strong, classic climbing rope to support the most difficult demands of traditional climbing.

Now featuring UNICORE technology, the Cobra is light, robust and free running for ease of use on long routes, big crags and on ice (treatment permitting).

Features

  • Excellent balance between weight and durability
  • Low impact force and high 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.

DryCover
Every filament in the sheath of Beal DryCover ropes is treated with a water repellent chemical before the rope is manufactured. This chemical covering is polymerised at high temperature to prolong the life of the dry treatment, thus adding to the durability of the rope. On a Beal DryCover rope, the core is not treated.

  • Improved resistance to grit and to humidity
  • Limited water absorption
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Improved abrasion resistance in normal climbing use

Unicore
The UNICORE process bonds the sheath of the rope to the core. This prevents sheath slippage, but also helps to keep the structural integrity of the rope if it is cut or damaged.

  • Sheath slippage is eliminated
  • Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut
  • Rope cutting is easy: no hot knife required
  • Improved rope-running through karabiners and belay devices
  • Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50%

Beal Cobra Unicore Dry Cover 8.6mm x 60m

Very supple, light and great to handle. Lundy rain had no effect on its first outing!
