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 more than meet UIAA requirements The rope's mechanical features last longer in cold and wet conditions.
Ultrasound finishing:
Deterioration of rope ends is no longer an issue thanks to this new ultrasound fusion process.
Middle marking:
To improve your safety, this rope features a black mark which indicates the middle of the rope.
Weight:
38 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.

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!

    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

    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) .
