Beal’s Golden Dry Treatment means that both the sheath and the core of the rope have been treated to resist dirt, ice and water. This makes the Beal Cobra ll 8.6mm ideal for ice climbing and mountaineering routes because it won’t freeze up or absorb a lot of water. Golden Dry Treatment also increases the longevity of your rope and improves the handling. Win, win.
The Beal Cobra ll 8.6mm features Beal’s unique Unicore Technology bonds the sheath and the core of the rope together, which drastically reduces sheath slippage and makes your rope much safer to use. The Unicore Treatment means that you can still safely rappel or abseil to safety if the sheath of your rope gets cut, as it won’t slip and bunch up and become impossible to pass.
1 Rope 1 Tree
Beal takes their environmental responsibility seriously. They divide their efforts between two main approaches. Firstly, Beal run an exceptional programme, in which they plant a tree for every single dynamic rope purchased. They’ve been doing this since 2007 and have no plans to stop! Secondly, Beal organises the recycling of ropes when they reach the end of their life. Every Beal rope is recyclable, and anyone can send their used Beal rope to one of their recycling departments, where they are broken down and reused. Top work Beal!
