Rope Icon 9.3 is manufactured by Singing Rock patented technology ROUTE 44, which gives to the rope well-balanced rate of weight and diameter. Being so light and robust, it is ideal for hard routes on-sight, flash or redpointing where every gram counts. Every streak of the sheath is guided individually, not in a pair as usual, thus the sheath is more resistant against breakage, but on the other hand it is smoother.
Rope Icon 9.3 Singing Rock features: - ROUTE 44 - Unique technology invented and patented by Singing Rock which allows blending properties of ropes that were considered impossible before. Some features get better, none gets worse. So you get… a BETTER rope. - THERMOTRANSFER END MARKING - Special plastic etiquette applied to the end of the rope by thermotransfer (heat and pressure). This marking is durable and does not create any broad forms on the ends of the rope. - ULTRASONIC - The best way of rope ending. This means that the load-bearing core and the protective sheath are joined into a compact unit in the last 15mm of the rope with Ultrasonic technology. - MIDDLE MARKING - Marking that points the middle of the rope to improve safety, which does not interrupt the core structure and its mechanical properties.
All this makes Rope Icon 9.3 Singing Rock ideal for high level sports climbers who like lightness and fluidity. Not suitable for beginners or inexperienced climbers belaying.
IMPORTANT: It is highly recommended to climb the first 100m without falling using both ends. Otherwise, the rope can not stretch well and the sheath could be damaged unnecessarily.
