The Edelrid Starling Pro Dry is a robust and great value half rope with a water resistant coating. The combination of sheath and core water resistant coating, durable sheath and 8.5mm diameter make the Starling Pro Dry the ideal rope for year round climbing objectives, from summer trad to Scottish Winter climbing. The Starling 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. The Starling is also lap coiled for tangle free use straight out of the bag.
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 don not get really heavy when wet. It also has an added benefit of vastly improving the ropes durability. The Starling Pro Dry 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.
