For the WorkPro, we developed an entirely new approach to rope construction—one that makes for balanced elongation in the core and sheath so they share the load evenly. This makes the WorkPro stronger than other 11 mm ropes of similar construction while retaining a small but important amount of elongation.
A superior handling rescue rope, New England Ropes KM III static kernmantle rope features composite construction, with the continuous filament polyester sheath braided over a continuous nylon fiber core. Featuring a weight-balanced construction with the sheath and the core each representing half the total weight, KM III is torque-balanced to eliminate any spin during a rappel.
Static kernmantel rope for todays demanding rope work. The 11mm (7/16) AXIS line of rope from Petzl features innovative design that helps maintain the ropes shape, while giving the rope a great handle for knotcraft.
