Cobra II Unicore 8.6mm - Dry Cover
The Beal Cobra II is a classic half rope which is a great compromise between weight, stength and handling. It is light and free running making it an excellent choice for long routes at a crag or in the mountains. The Dry Cover treatment on the sheath strands adds resistance to moisture and dirt ingress as well as providing a smoother running though quickdraws. The Cobra II also features a Unicore construction whereby the sheath and core are bonded together for extra safety should your rope get cut. The addition of a Thermo Fluid process stabilses the yarn for a more compact rope with better handling qualities.
Excellent compromise between strength and lightness.
Low impact force and raised number of falls sustained.
The rope doesn’t bunch up and remains supple for the long term.
Allows escape by abseil even if the sheath is cut thanks to a Unicore construction
