The 2013 Beal UNICORE Ropes

For 2013, Beal is adding five more ropes to its line of UNICORE ropes making a total of 13 UNICORE ropes. From a diameter of 7mm and up to 11mm, there is now a UNICORE rope for every type of climbing.

New to the UNICORE ranks is the Ice Line 8.1mm, Cobra 8.6 mm, Joker 9.1mm, Tiger 10mm, and Top Gun 10.5mm. For over a year now, the Diablo 9.8mm, Diablo 10.2mm, Wall School 10.2mm, Wall Master 10.5mm, Access 10.5 & 11mm, Baobab 13.5mm, and Spelenium 8.5mm have astonished the masses with its UNICORE properties that ramps up the ropes’ safety and performance.

Advantages of UNICORE:
On a classic rope, if the sheath is accidentally severed, it slides and bunches over several meters. It then becomes impossible to pass this zone, whether climbing or descending.

With UNICORE, the sheath stays in place and the user may escape, either by climbing or by descending, whilst taking all necessary precautions. You are not stuck on the rope with no way out!

NEW - The first UNICORE double rope

UNICORE permanently bonds the sheath to the core to eliminate sheath slippage and improves performance and safety, especially in wet conditions. The Ice Line’s extremely low impact force settles the nerves when facing less-than-perfect protection points in ice and on mixed routes. A trump card that no alpinist can ignore.
