FastRope Type 1


    Developed for use on the V22 Osprey, this ballasted FAST rope performs especially well in high prop wash or turbulent conditions. A lead-ballasted core minimizes the ropes harmonic movement below the aircraft to facilitate insertion. A Spectra fiber core adds strength and improves cut resistance. If the sheath yarns are cut, it will not compromise rope strength as it does with a standard fast rope. This rope features a stainless steel thimble termination, and can be configured with the standard eight-loop FRIES extraction. The eye termination is designed to accept two carabiners for aircraft connection, and allows the user to grip the rope more safely higher up.
