If you're looking for one rope to suit your all-around vertical needs, reach for the Blue Water Accelerator 10.5mm Standard Rope. Built with longevity and durability in mind, this cord boasts a tightly braided double-pick sheath construction that's ready to withstand the abuse of your adventures. Thanks to an impact rating of 8kN, you're subjected to minimal stress when that sport lead project proves more difficult than anticipated. Since the Accelerator has a UI falls-held rating of 11, you don't have to worry about early retirement if that project does just so happen to spit you off .... more than a few times.
The 10.5 Accelerator Rope by Bluewater is considered one of the better all around ropes on the market. Bluewater designed the Accelerator with performance and durability as the most important aspects of the rope. With its 10.5 sized sheath it can run over sharp rocks and take falls over and over without losing its elongation and still have superior handling. Bluewater starts with the finest nylon fiber and processes it from start to finish with their proprietary Duration Thermal Stabilization (DTS). This is a precise technique that puts the nylon under a critical heat treatment that allows them to achieve a better balanced rope with incredible endurance. Some of the 10.5 ropes are dry treated for ice climbing or mountaineering. The Double-Dry treatment is applied to each individual fiber in the sheath and core allowing just 11% water absorption (compared to the standard 20% - 30%) so your rope remains light and flexible under adverse conditions. Double-Dry also increases rope longevity and is an option on all of the dynamic cords.
Climb in just about any locale with the 10.5 mm Accelerator Dry Rope from BlueWater Ropes. Perfect for those who wish to limit the number of ropes that they carry to one, the durable Accelerator has a long lifespan, while the Double Dry treatment means that it will allow only 11% water absorption, so it'll stay light and flexible, even when the weather gets tough.
