Product Description

Poly- and perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), and their subcategory PFAS in particular, make outdoor equipment resistant to oil, grease, and water. Once released into the environment, however, the chemicals degrade very slowly, posing a long-term environmental problem. With Eco Dry finishing technology, Edelrid have succeeded in developing a process that is almost on a par with high-performance PFCs and PFAS. Due to their three-dimensional kernmantle construction, the treatment process of ropes is very complex. This is because the finishing process must never compromise the safety and functionality of a climbing rope. The Eco Dry process meets all these requirements and is 100% free of PFCs and even PFAS. The world’s first PFC- and PFAS-free rope that also meets the UIAA water repellent standard is the EDELRID Swift Eco Dry 8.9 mm. It absorbs less than 1 to 2% of its own weight in water. It is also bluesign® certified and offers comparable values to the Pro Dry line in terms of durability, abrasion resistance, and water and dirt resistance.
