Since release Tachyon has become one of the most successful and popular climbing ropes among the 24-strand. Revolutionary Flexifirm™ Core Technology results in a lightweight 11.5mm climbing line that stays firm and round while permitting spliced eyes in one or both ends of the line using a double braid splice. Tachyon™ performs well in popular hardware designed for use with 11mm ropes. The product’s firm yet flexible design and superior strand definition significantly improve friction hitch performance without the “bagginess” that occurs with other 11mm ropes. The firm, round cross section also improves grip for less hand fatigue without the added bulk and weight of half inch ropes.
- Low stretch at low loads for less bounce while climbing
- High stretch at high loads thus minimizing the shock effect in the event of a fall
- Consistent diameter while climbing thus ensuring an improved grip
- Great ease of splicing
