Petzl's ropes reflect our desire to offer the highest quality, most innovative climbing products possible. Uniting the most advanced construction technology with years of climbing equipment and rope knowledge, we have developped a line of ropes that offer unsurpassed quality, durability and handling.
Every Petzl rope is fine-tuned for the optimum combination of weight, number of falls, impact force, elongation, handling and durability.
Each characteristic must be carefully balanced to take into account the activity for which the rope is going to be used. Ropes designed primarily for sport climbing must provide a soft catch and be durable, while not having too much elongation.
With more general purpose ropes, durability - number of falls and sheath thickness - is the major focus of design criteria.
Small diameter half ropes have their own set of design demands: lightweight, great handling characteristics and durability.
Each Petzl rope was specifically designed for your style of adventure, where ever it takes you.
