EDELWEISS OXYGEN II 8.2MM

The Edelweiss Oxygen II 8.2mm sits in the number one spot for a half-rope with its very low impact force and weight. For being a soft catching and light rope, the Oxygen II puts up a giant fight against the rock and water, thanks to its HD Cover and Supereverdry treatment. The HD Cover greatly reduces abrasion and snags while allowing the rope to run fluidly through protection and across the rocks. The Oxygen II comes standard with the Supereverdry treatment that is polymerized onto the sheath and core fibers, making it highly water and abrasion resistant.

    DESIGNATIONS

    PERFORM 3


    All Edelweiss ropes with the Perform 3 label have been engineered with a perfect balance of durability, handling, and performance. Perform 3 is Edelweiss' premium combination of chracteristics for top-level climbing ropes, providing optimal safety and enhanced performance.

    Perform 3 ropes possess three main chracteristics that benefit climbers in both realms of safety and performance:

    1) Improved Flexibility: Perform 3 ropes are supple, providing a much better handing experience when tying knots and clipping protection. The improved handling characteristics come from new construction techniques such as the HD Cover.

    2) Improved Energy Absorption: Perform 3 ropes have a much lower impact force, providing the lead climber with increased safety. Low impact forces improve the holding power of the protection, reduce the impact of a fall on the climber, and provide a more enjoyable climbing experience for both the climber and belayer. Improved treatments to the core yarns in Perform 3 ropes have lowered the impact force to provide a more safe and comfortable rope.

    3) Improved Strength to Weight Ratio: Perform 3 ropes weigh less and still retain the same durability and strength of other Edelweiss ropes. The improvements in construction and treatments have resulted in lighter ropes with better performance characteristics. Smaller diameters are possible with better handling, lower impact forces, and improved performance in UIAA tests.

    PROCESSES

    UNICORE


    An astonishing process, bonding the sheath and core without affecting the rope’s suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together. With a standard rope, if the sheath is cut by abrasion over an edge, the sheath can slide and gather along the rope length, creating a potentially dangerous situation. With the UNICORE process, the sheath remains in place and the rope intact and fully functional.

    HD COVER


    Edelweiss ropes with HD Cover are manufactured using a high definition braiding technology where each cover yarn is individually woven for optimal performance. With this style of braiding the rope's cover, the thickness of the sheath remains the same while the rope's surface is much smoother than with standard braiding methods. HD Cover makes belaying more fluid and allows the rope to pass smoothly through the protection. Other benefits are higher abrasion resistance and an extended lifespan for the rope. 

    TREATMENTS

    SUPEREVERDRY


    Edelweiss was the first climbing rope manufacturer to apply a Supereverdry treatment to all fibers in the core and sheath. A Supereverdry treated rope barely absorbs any water in wet conditions, dries quicker, and doesn't stiffen up in freezing temperatures. Comparative tests demonstrate the superiority of this treatment over competing methods of other manufacturers with respect to durability of the treatment as well as efficiency.

    Supereverdry treated ropes exceed the new UIAA WATER REPELLENT standard.

    UIAA WATER REPELLENT


    To succeed in this testing performed in a certified laboratory, the rope must absorb less than 5% of its weight after exposure to a severe water flow for 15 minutes. The results obtained by the Supereverdry treated ropes are 0.8 to 1.4% (average 1.1%) compared to the 40-50% absorbed by the non-treated ropes.
