Weight
54 g/m PLEASE NOTE: Weight measurements made according to the EN 892 standard. For example, for a single rope, the rope must be exposed to 10 kg of tension for 1 minute in very precise temperature and moisture conditions. This gives you the real weight of the rope, which is often superior to the weight given by the standard. The weight measurement according to the standard is used to compare two ropes to each other.
Eco-design
To reduce the environmental impact, our designers have chosen to dye the strands of the sheath using a technology known as "dope dyeing" (the inner strands are not dyed). This technology adds colour pigments as early as the manufacturing stage, before the strands are braided. This method stands out from traditional dyeing techniques by reducing the amount of water needed and the amount of waste water discharged from the dyeing baths.
MADE IN FRANCE
All of our ropes are designed and tested in Chamonix, in the Mont Blanc valley. They are made in northern France by our manufacturing partner, Cousin, expert rope makers for 170 years.
WASHING YOUR ROPE
It's important to properly care for your rope to reduce wear. As dirt wears ropes down, we recommend: 1- using a rope cover; 2- If the rope is dirty, wash it with clean, lukewarm water. Should stains persist and you want to wash it with soap, it is important to use a pH-neutral soap (such as Marseille/household soap) and then rinse thoroughly with clean water. 3- Air dry the rope out of the sun and away from all sources of heat.
STORING YOUR ROPE
Ropes should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from light, humidity, and corrosive agents. Never leave ropes inside a car during summer, for example.
CHECKING YOUR ROPE
It is important to check your rope regularly. To do so, run the rope through your hands and inspect it metre by metre along its entire length. This will allow you to spot any nicks, cuts, abrasion or weak points. If you notice any anomalies or irregularities, if the core is visible in certain places, if the rope is deformed or has exceeded its fall rating, it must be changed. Take safety seriously!
ROPE LENGTH EVOLUTION
As they get older, all climbing ropes get shorter. Usually, they get 2 to 5% shorter, but this can reach up to 10% depending on humidity, heat, falls, washing, etc. To decrease this effect, we calculate an extra margin of length when manufacturing our ropes, but sometimes this isn't enough. This is why we recommend regularly measuring your rope and checking the rope’s middle mark.

    For the money excellent rope. Light and slick for clipping/belaying, seems durable for a skinny single

    Inexpensive but not at all durable

    I purchased a 100m edge rope in March. Two sport climbing trips and a few weekend uses on crags in the UK and it's fragility became apparent. The sheath wore terribly in several places. In one small spot where there was a small amount of sheath furring I could see through to the core... Not good.

    I have several other ropes of a similar diameter, at least four years old that have fared better than this. It is all the more unexpected given how durable the manufacturer claims the rope to be.

    However Decathalon were outstanding in dealing with my concerns about the rope. Full marks for their excellent customer service. But I won't be buying a Simond rope again.

    Best value skinny rope on the market

    At £119 for a 100m, sub-9mm rope, this has to be the best value out there. It handles really well both when clipping and belaying, and seems to be relatively robust. It's not as soft as a Beal Joker, which is no bad thing in my opinon, and I think I now prefer the Simond. Apart from carting around the weight of 100m of rope, it's an excellent choice. (breaks fine with a Grigri 2)
