The Glider™ series represents the ultimate in durability and reduced rope drag. Built to the same high performance standards as our Apex products, ropes in the Glider series utilize TPT™ sheath, significantly reducing drag. This technology, according to Rock & Ice Magazine, “[creates] a fabulous feel without being soft and mushy…noticeably reduces drag…[and is a] real joy to handle with minimal kinking…” The Glider is the perfect Sport and Trad climbing rope, and is a good all-around choice for extreme free climbing.

Our Glider series represents the ultimate in durability and reduced rope drag. Built to the same high performance standards as our Apex products, ropes in the Glider series utilize our TPT (Twill Pattern Technology) sheath design, significantly reducing drag.

Ideal for long routes at the local crag, the New England Glider bi-pattern 9.9mm x 70m dry-core rope lets you lead modern routes and set up topropes without running short. Twill Pattern Technology (TPT) sheath weave delivers a small profile in the cross-section for improved sharp-edge abrasion resistance and reduced drag in mechanical devices. Endura Dry(TM) treatment penetrates to the core and bonds with the rope fiber to retard moisture gain and improve abrasion resistance. 9.9mm diameter keeps the weight down for the approach. Bi-pattern option allows quick and easy identification of midpoint of rope without affecting rope quality or performance. Kernmantle design features a stretchy core protected by a durable outer sheath which combine for strength and good handling. Meets or exceeds UIAA tests for falls, impact force and elongation.
The Maxim Glider 9.9mm Rope uses a Twill Pattern Technology sheath to provide the durability of a thick line with the amazing handling and lightweight of skinny ropes. By using single-pick construction to build the sheath, as is done on twin and half ropes, Maxim reduced both internal and external friction on the Glider to increase handling and durability. No longer will your rope fuzz up after three trips and wear out in a year. The Glider takes the abuse of the harshest rock with ease.
