The C-IV is a very high performing rope designed specifically for the rigors of canyoneering. The tough Technora sheath resists abrasion and cutting, deflects the heat from rapid descents and is extremely low stretch. The polypropylene braided core is water resistant and helps keep this rope light. The core helps to keep weight down, while the Technora sheath makes the rope strong.
62 canyons in Spain, France, Switzerland, and Italy from the easiest (Formiga) to the most extreme (Lodrino)
- 424 abseils ( max 45M high)
- limestone 82%
- granite 18%
- two times jumaring on it (~ 22m)
A great rope, especially regarding the smaller diamètre!
This rope remains flexible and pleasent to use even for the
clients. Rétraction was only 1.5M for 47M length, and stay very static.
There was no problems about the durability even on sharp granite
edges we encountered on Italy. ----Stéphane et Paola GAVARD
