BlueWater's 9.1mm Icon Bi-color Rope is a single rope that's skinny but tough. The Icon's 35% sheath mass remains stiff and drags less to minimize the abrasive effects of rocks and dirt.Visual changes in the sheath's pattern alert you or your partner when you've reached the halfway point on your rope.

Endowed with a tight braid and an extra thick sheath, the Blue Water Icon Double Dry 9. 1mm Climbing Rope brings a new level of durability to the world of ultra-skinny redpoint cords. As a result of seeking lower weights and smaller diameters, skinny singles have traditionally been prone to short lifespans. Thanks to the Icon's 35% sheath mass, this rope can provide the featherlight performance serious sport climbers need with reduced drag, increased abrasion resistance, and a longer lifespan.
The all new Icon single rope is designed to be a great wearing skinny rope. The problem with most skinny ropes is overall performance is diluted when chasing a minimum diameter and weight. They really are not designed with the user's best interest - safety and longevity in mind. The Icon has a 35% sheath mass with a tight braid so the rope does not become floppy and has less drag which means less abrasion from running across rock. Try an Icon as your next skinny rope. We believe you'll be amazed at this new design when compared to other "skinny" ropes. Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable.
