Introducing the new Black Diamond dynamic climbing ropes collection.
The goal was to create a simple and streamlined range of rope that can be used both in climbing gym and mountain.
Black Diamond dynamic climbing ropes offer a precise selection of diameters and treatments, designed to meet all the climbing practices. This choice makes it possible to offer each climber the rope appropriate to his practice.
The ropes are named according to their diameter, because that’s how climbers talk about ropes.
The goal was to find the perfect balance between weight, durability and handling.
They used a unique blend of weave and sheath that are fused together to create a flexible rope that knots easily and fits easily into a chute, while remaining resistant to regular use.
The Black Diamond dynamic climbing ropes collection uses two types of duct construction.
We have a Regular sheath, consisting of a weave of 2 by 2, able to withstand daily use, and our Endurance sheath made of a weave 1 on 1 with more sheath which makes it even more resistant to abrasion.
Some ropes have a waterproofing treatment. The Full Dry treatment provides complete imperviousness to the core and sheath, thus protecting the entire rope.
All Black Diamond strings have a distance mark in the middle. This rope collection meets the majority of needs that a climber can have.
