Orbit 9.6mm

The Orbit's 9.6mm diameter balances durability and low weight, making it suitable for use across summer and winter. UIAA Dry treatment helps the Orbit repel water in wet or icy conditions, preventing it from freezing or becoming heavy when wet. The ideal singe rope for sport climbers that want to try trad or winter routes.

Single rope for simplicity and minimum weight

Single ropes are the most simple and lightweight rope systems for climbing. They can be used for any discipline, and are appropriate where protection follows a relatively straight line. If the route wanders, runners will need to be extended to prevent rope drag and prevent trad protection from lifting out.

UIAA Dry treatment for water resistance and increased durability

The UIAA dry treatment standard dictates that a rope must absorb less than 5% of its total weight in water after light abrasion and 15 minutes soaking. DMM Ropes marked UIAA Dry conform to this standard, and are suitable for use in alpine, winter and wet environments, where they will resists soaking up water and freezing. Dry treatment also extends a ropes lifespan by protecting it against dirt and grit.

ThermoControl heat treatment for positive handling and suppleness

ThermoControl heat treatment alters the fibres within the rope, balancing the core and sheath to minimise slippage and prevent the rope shrinking or going stiff. This increases durability, and gives ropes supple handling.
