Apex is the workhorse of the New England Ropes line. Apex is designed for big wall and trad climbing or for working projects and developing routes. Apex makes an excellent rope for challenge courses and fall protection for safety personnel. Apex takes a beating but still delivers reliable clips. All Apex ropes feature Endura Dry Treatment.
Take on trad climbs and alpine adventures with the tough Apex 10.2mm x 60m dry rope. Endura Dry(TM) treatment penetrates to the core and bonds with the rope fiber to retard moisture gain and improve abrasion resistance. Kernmantle construction from U.S.-manufactured, premium materials effectively absorbs falls; friction-reducing finish extends the rope's life. Advanced braiding techniques stabilize the yarns for a consistent feel over the rope's useful life and create superb handling characteristics. Dynamic elongation is 30%, static elongation is 5.2%. Meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation. Special buy.
