Braided Safety Blue™ is a 16-strand climbing rope that is engineered to stay round and firm even after years of use. Unlike other 16-strand climbing ropes, Braided Safety Blue™ is made of sixteen strands, each of which is comprised of tightly plied polyester fiber over fibrillated polyolefin fibers. Adding the additional step of plied yarns results in a firmer, rounder, more durable strand…and therefore a longer lasting rope. Skipping the plying process results in a rope that is much more susceptible to snagging and abrasion. Also, fibrillated polyolefin, unlike monofilament polyolefin used in other 16-strand ropes, is much more pliable. The result is a rope that is more flexible, holds knots better, and won’t develop a “memory”. The entire rope is also treated with a special formula which enhances abrasion resistance. Trademark “Blue” core.
