Tie into the Maxim Unity Half Rope when you're casting off on a long ice or alpine route and saving weight is absolutely paramount. This incredibly light half rope weighs only 48g/m, and it's skinnier than most twin ropes. Single-pick construction makes the Unity Rope's sheath very abrasion resistant, and the long-lasting Endura Dry treatment keeps it from getting soaked on a wet ice pitch. After all, wet ropes weigh more, handle horribly, and are weaker than dry ones. Pair the Unity with another half rope for use in double rope technique to reduce rope drag, provide redundancy, and allow full-length rappels, so you can get off the mountain without ditching your whole rack in the process.

Unity is a multi-purpose rope and is perfect for the weight conscious alpinist. Used as a half rope, the Unity is designed to be alternately clipped to protection and constructed to reduce drag and increase fall protection over sharp edges. The Unity provides outstanding performance on routes with multiple traverses. As a twin, Unity can take on the most challenging ice routes. Unity is also light enough and tough enough to be used as a glacier rope on the world's toughest mountains.

The double rope technique reduces rope drag and increases fall protection over sharp edges, especially on routes with multiple traverses.

The Maxim Unity was designed as an all around excellent rope with an emphasis on light weight and durability. The slim size keeps the weight to a minimum while the TPT "twill" sheath makes the rope slide through belay devices and over rough rock like a dream. The use of double rope technique further reduces rope drag and increases safety in situations where your rope may be damaged by falling rock, a sharp edge, or a misplaced crampon. Double ropes also allow for longer rappels by a party of 2 than if using one single rope. The rope is made using maxim's 2-x-dry treatment. The water-resistant coatings are applied to the core yarns, and then the sheath is woven over them. The whole rope is then retreated and cured to make this a very durable water-resistant treatment that will not wear off like others.Diameter: 8.0mmSheath slippage: 0mmDynamic elongation: 29%.Please note: This rope is designed and tested to use a double/half rope technique. It is not intended to be used as a single rope.
