Roca Zen is the ideal rope for classic climbing, adventure terrain climbing and alpine climbing. The Endurance construction give the rope more rexistance to abrasion and reduces the penetration of ice and dust between the filaments. It also facilitates the sliding of the rope on the rock and carabiners. The Endurance construction prolongs the life of the rope more than 60%. (Internal studies of abrasion tests have endured 300% more than classical ropes).
Full Dry treatment prolongs the life of the rope maintaining the performance at top level also with adverse weather condition.
The fall factor is used to determine the severity of a fall while climbing. It ranges from 0 to 2, with Factor 2 being the most severe. The fall factor is the ratio between the height of the fall and the length of the rope. It will be Factor 2 when the height of the potential fall is twice the distance separating the climber from the anchor device.
Roca is one of the oldest rope manufacturers in the world. In operation since 1891, in 2012 it went on to form part of Fixe, for which it currently makes all the ropes in its catalogue. Fixe ropes are backed up by more than 125 years of experience in the sector. All production is done in Sant Quirze de Besora (Barcelona).
Ropes that use Endurance technology slide more easily over their working surfaces: carabiners, descenders, belays, anchors, etc. To achieve this, higher quality strands are used which, combined with the manufacturing system, enables Roca to produce ropes with unique characteristics on the market.
Endurance gives ropes a nicer feel, greater fluidity, and the ability to withstand 30% more abrasion cycles.
Fixe ropes that use Endurance braiding (known colloquially as herringbone braiding) are the following: Summit, Zen, Monkey, Dominator, IO Plus, Siurana, Rainbow, Pro Endurance, Canyon Endurance and Espeleo Endurance.
Fixe has a range of ropes that use Full Dry technology in its catalogue. Maximum protection against ice, moisture and dust, increasing the sliding capacity and abrasion resistance.
All Fixe ropes that display the Full Dry seal comply with the UIAA Water Repellent requirements.
All ropes treated with FULL DRY absorb less than 5% of the rope’s weight in water. Recommended for practising mountaineering, ice climbing and for wet and dusty areas
