Beal presents the lightest single rock climbing rope on the market, at just 48g per meter and with a diameter of 8.5mm, the Opera is made using the most advanced technologies available.

Using Unicore technology, which, until now, has only been used on semi-static ropes. Beal has bonded the rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. This bonding means that the rope swells less when wet, offers easier handling and is more durable. It also feels as if you are using a much narrower and lighter rope, yet has all the advantages of a single rope .

The Opera 8.5 is certified for 3 standards; as a single rope, a half rope and twin rope, which makes it ideal for professionals and experienced climbers, looking for a safe, lightweight, smooth-running rope or for those looking for a multi-purpose rope for trad, mixed and snow.

Ultra-smooth and ultra-light, it has been treated with Golden Dry technology and certified as UIAA water repellent. Thermo Fluid technology uses infrared treatment to reinforce the sheath fibers and achieve a more compact and manageable rope.

Each Beal rope has an Individual Identifcation Number which appears at the end and on the individual ID card. This guarantess its traceability.

It will slide more quickly through classic devices and be more difficult to brake and it may even not work at all in certain automatic belay devices.

Parece magico con ese diametro..., 15 Jun 2015
Sent by Arina
La uso sobre todo para actividades en las que no se que cuerda voy a necesitar. Para las demás hay mejores cuerdas especificas salvo quizás para la deportiva de alto nivel (que no es mi caso) Gran evolución en todo caso.
