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.

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.
