For ascent where only one rope is used. This is the most basic and widely used method of using rope for ascents.
Separate ropes are anchored in alternating belaying points. This system reduces the risk of rope breakage by falling rocks and provides maximum protection in alpine conditions or on tough climbs.
The same ropes are always used in pairs, secured at common belaying points. Twin ropes guarantee a high level of safety, especially for classic alpine climbing.
Improved basic finishing of dynamic ropes. The new technological process enables the application of impregnation agents early in the standard finishing of the ropes.
Maximum level of rope protection against water and abrasion. It is reached by using the new progressive NANOTECHNOLOGY method. Tiny particles of TEFLON®Eco are applied to the rope sheath and core and make a film of almost impermeable protective layer. The rope fibres are then protected against dust and water which would othervise cause a harm to the rope construction. COMPLETE SHIELD is an impregnation which extends the general lifespan of TENDON ropes significantly. All ropes with the Complete Shield finish meet the UIAA 101 requirement for water repellent test.
Tendon electronic note system (TeNOTE)
Rope marking system by means of a microchip.
SBS - Simple Braid System
SBS – is system where each strand is plaited separatelly into the sheath construction and not in pair (tandem). SBS braiding makes the sheath surface much more compact and smoother. Therefore ropes made by SBS generate much lower friction, are more resistant to abrasion and last longer while in contact with rocks.
Our own special technology has been used for the ends of the rope. In a length of 15 mm, the core strand and sheath are connected into one unit.
Midpoint of rope
At half of the length, the rope is visibly marked by coloured band, which does not affect the core structure and its mechanical properties. Lengths 30 - 80 m only.
Thanks to the unique combination of materials which work together jointly and meet the stringent requirements of the EN 892 standard, we were able to reduce the weight while retaining a diameter acceptable to all climbers.
The TeFIX® patented technology permanently bonds the sheath to the core. It prevents from any slippage between these two basic rope parts. This particular feature was reached by adding a special material between core and sheath. This extra material is later also processed so that the bond is flexible and strong. The rope has a 0% sheath slippage, much longer lifespan, and better handling.
A new, clearly identifiable change of rope pattern in the middle. Bicolour brings comfort in rope handling and is advantageous especially for descending. The change of pattern is practical also when climbing with half ropes and contributes to improvement of ropework as well as to safety in general.
CE - symbol of compliance
This symbol confirms that the product meets safety requirements specified in the relevant Europen regulations. The number following symbol (e.g. CE1019) is number of notified body which performs checking of production: VVUÚ, a.s., Pikartská 1337/7, 71607 Ostrava- Radvanice, Czech Republic.
Products marked with this symbol meet UIAA requirements.The UIAA is the International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation.
Rope with a zero sheath slippage is made with utilization of the unique patented technology named Secure. Thanks to the unique sandwichtype construction of braided layers and the use of specially finished fibres, the rope is safe even in case of a heavily damaged sheath.
New, revolutionary conception of the overall administration and registration of ropes which, thanks to NFC technology, offers unthought-of possibilities and brings user comfort to a hitherto unrecognized level. Rope includes microchip. With a PC and a mobile phone you obtain a quick, effective and smart tool for examination and maintenance of your ropes.
This European norm establishes safety requirements and testing procedures for static ropes at European Union accredited laboratories. Products labeled with the symbol of this European norm satisfy the given safety requirements.
This European norm establishes safety requirements and testing procedures for dynamic climbing ropes at European Union accredited laboratories. Products labelled with the symbol of this European norm satisfy the given safety requirements.
These ropes meet the life safety rope requirements of NFPA 1983, standard on fire service life safety rope and equipment for emergency services, 2017 edition.
