Additional information

UIAA Dry treatment
This rope has the UIAA Water Repellent label A brief summary of test: - A rope sample is subjected to light abrasion over its entire surface, the equivalent to a few days’ use. - It is soaked for 15 minutes. - the amount of absorbed water must not be greater than 5% of the sample’s weight. The SIMOND DRY ropes easily meet UIAA requirements The rope's mechanical features will last longer in cold and wet conditions.
Ultrasound seal
Deterioration of rope ends is no longer an issue thanks to this new ultrasound fusion process.
Middle mark
Middle mark for greater safety when lead climbing or abseiling and making rope handling easier.

buena cuerda
ligereza no parece tan resistente como anunciado

Buena cuerda, muy ligera. La he estado usando de manera instensiva durante 15 días, pero ya presenta raspaduras. Pensaba que sería algo más resistente. Usada en caliza y en terreno mixto; versión 40m.

diametro troppo piccolo
leggerezza calza troppo poco compatta, facile che si aggrovig

a causa del diametro piccolo e di una calza poco compatta la mezza corda si torce sia nelle doppie che nella progressione in cordata, si creano asole che interrompono lo scorrere della corda nel reverso

Brand response :


Buongiorno Sig. Emanuele,
il diametro della mezza corda è in linea coi prodotti del mercato e a norma con gli assicuratori e i discensori  cui si consiglia l'uso.
Per ridurre il problema delle asole, episodio abbastanza frequente quando la corda è nuova, le consiglio di fare qualche discesa in doppia per stenderla ed evitare di riporla "a matassa", ma di lasciarla sciolta e libera in un sacco o in un telo.
Cordiali saluti,
Serena Calvi Monitrice Simond Decathlon Corsico

    Abseil Rope 7.5mm x 60m

    Now in its 3rd winter of regular use and still going strong/showing very little sign of wear. Packaging has always shown this to be used as a half or twin rope. Amazing price for a sheath and core dry-treated rope.

    Weight unclear

    This is advertised as 36g/m but the label shows 30m as 1230g (41g/m). This is a pretty large discrepency for a small rope

    Brand response :

    Thanks for your feedback on the Simond rope, I appreciate the time you have taken to provide such critical information. I am in touch with the product manager to alter the description as soon as possible. Enjoy your mountaineering!

    Simond hiking rope 7.5
    Quality seems good lack of detail could result in serious injury.

    Service and price.v good

    Being this narrow it is likely to be a half rope, but this is not mentioned in the description.
    This raises safety issues about the limitation of the rope. In particular that it should be used double for any climbing work ( belaying/ absailling) .
