Cobra II 8.6 mm Dry CoverRegular price €135.00
The great classic for adventure climbing. Light and free-running for ease of use on long routes, on the crag and in the Alps. Technical and robust enough to sustain the most difficult loadings, it is even better today because it now benefits from all the advantages of the UNICORE technology.

Unicore: An astonishing process, bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope’s suppleness. Even in the toughest conditions of use sheath slippage is suppressed.
If the sheath is cut or torn, sheath and core remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, it slides and gathers over some metres. It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, either to ascend or to descend.
If the problem occurs near to the end of the rope the sheath may slide off completely resulting in a fall to the ground.
With the Unicore process the sheath remains in place and the user may escape, either by descent or ascent, taking all necessary precautions.
The user is not stuck without a solution on the rope.
Dry Cover: A process whereby every individual sheath strand receives a chemical treatment before the rope is manufactured. The treatment is hydrophobic, increases abrasion resistance and is polymerised at high temperatures. The polymerisation process together with every strand being coated individually increases the life of the treatment.
