The Edelrid Aramid Cord Sling 6mm x 60cm is a super strong climbing sling made from synthetic fibers.
Despite looking a little retro, these sewn cord slings from Edelrid offer something different from the usual dyneema webbing climbing sling. For a start they are very strong (rated to 22kN) and much more abrasion resistant than dyneema. They are also far stiffer than dyneema webbing, making them great for poking through threads - particularly one handed whilst on the lead!
Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant, super strong synthetic fibers. For this reason, they are often used in aerospace and military applications as well as for ballistic rated body armour fabric - so they are extremely tough! A great addition to your climbing rack!
