The Edelrid Apus Pro Dry is a lightweight half rope designed for weight critical Alpine and high end Trad routes. This is a rated half and twin rope with a diameter of just 7.9mm and just 44g per meter. The Apus Pro Dry features Edelrid's Thermo Shield treatment which balances the ropes sheath and core. This results in an improved glide and handling and maintains the ropes suppleness for the duration of its lifetime.
Edelrid's Pro Dry coating is a sheath and core treatment which prevents the rope from absorbing almost any water, it also protects from dirt, heat and abrasion. This coating ensures the rope will not freeze when used for winter and ice climbing. Pro Dry treated ropes only absorb water up to 2% of their weight so do not get really heavy when wet. It also has an added benefit of vastly improving the ropes durability. The Apus comes lap coiled so it can be used straight away without tangles.
Edelrid ropes are made in Germany and Bluesign approved so their ropes have a smaller carbon footprint than many of their competitors. They also use far less water in production and fewer chemicals.
