The Edelweiss Performance 9.2mm is a brilliantly versatile triple-rated performance rope - suitable for single, half and twin use. Sport, trad and alpine climbers can call on the Edelweiss Performance series when every gram counts and the slightest bit of rope drag can mean the difference between success and failure at the sharp end.
Using the Perform3 and Unicore production methods Edelweiss have constructed a climbing rope which is both durable and light, whilst also maintaining excellent handling and safety stats.
Perform3 is a method of constructing the sheath and core using cutting edge, heat treated polymer technology. The linear molecular structure of these polymers means the handling and durability of Perform3 ropes is slick and ubiquitous. It also provides a gain in impact force performance - up to 12.5% on a similar diameter rope not using this technology.
Unicore technology is an impressive process, bonding rope sheath and core together without affecting the rope's handling. If the sheath is cut or torn, core and sheath will remain bonded and synchronised. With a non Unicore (or similar) rope, if the sheath is cut or badly abraded over an edge it will slip, exposing the core and the rope may even break if loaded.
The Edelweiss Everdry coating also provides a dry treatment which acts as a repellant barrier against water and dirt.
