Beal Antipodes 8mm, 50m Length


An 8mm, and therefore clearly lighweight cord that has been used for very lightweight rigging, conforms to the EN564 standard for 'Type L' rope. The breaking load is 1800kg; it will accpet two Factor 1 Falls; and the weight per metre is 41g.

Flexible, comfortable to use (disengage unhelpful imagination) and allowis deep caves to be tackled by small and expert teams. Clearly, a rope best used with well-maintained descenders and positive braking krabs such as the Raumer Handy.

"The rope must never rub, and lightweight rope even more so!" - Alpine Caving Techniques, 3rd edition.
