Who would have thought even 10 years ago that we would be climbing on a single rope 8.9mm in diameter? Edelrid have raised the bar again.
One rope, three certifications. Not only is the Edelrid Swift Pro Dry 8.9mm the skinniest and one of the lightest single ropes in the world, it also is certified to be used as a half or twin rope. This makes for one high performance and versatile rope.
Use the Swift Pro Dry 8.9mm as a fast and light alpine rope. On glaciers or easier terrain use as a single rope but on technical ground when more gear is needed to be placed you can use in conjunction with another Swift or thinner half rope as a half rope set.
Use as a set of twin ropes when the route is faily straight forward but you need two lengths of rope to rap off. Clip each piece of gear with both ropes.
Use the Swift Pro Dry as a single rope when the route follows a straight line of protection like a vertical crack.
If the route wanders or the rope would have to run over edges or around corners than pair it with another 8.9mm or thinner half rope and use as doubles.
Want the lightest rope in the world with the least amount of drag to give you the edge when going for that send? You cannot blame the rope when it only weighs 52grams/m, and being 8.9mm will flow through your gear like nobody’s business. *
The dry treatment on the Swift Pro Dry is not a coating like other brands use. But instead it is impregnated into the core and sheath itself meaning that it cannot wear off. Giving you a rope that will stay cleaner for longer, maintain more strength when wet and won't freeze up over time when ice or alpine climbing.
Also features a half way marker for safe rappeling.
We strongly recommend that you use the Swift 8.9 in conjuction with an auto-locking or assisted breaking belay device like the Edelrid Mega Jul or the Petzl Gri Gri
*Not suitable for top roping or working routes as this will cause excessive wear.
