Joker - Latest Creation of the BEAL LAB
Here is the ultimate rope, the latest creation of the BEAL LAB, born with the help of the BEAL Team climbers.It’s the only rope in the world which conforms to all 3 dynamic rope norms.
The JOKER is in effect at the same time a single rope, a half rope and a twin rope.
This rope will be loved by the most extreme climbers, seeking lightness and easy running, as much as by more traditional climbers seeking a multi-purpose rope for ridge routesor classic face routes, mixed ice and snow, or snow alone.
Used as a ‘single’ this rope may not be grippable by all hands, and in all devices: in effect its fineness makes it a rope which demands expert holding and controlling. ‘Classic’ devices, designed for higher diameter ropes, will give reduced braking, and some self-locking auto-brakes may simply not work.
