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.
The small and medium versions are now manufactured using Hot Forged Technology, combined with high quality materials and components. These blocks are rope friendly, durable and extremely robust. These features combined give maximum security and strength, when the block is rigged as part of an impact system.
