Spijtig, ik vind op hun site nergens de technische gegevens van de touwen:
Impactkracht, aantal normvallen, gewicht / m ...
Dat zijn toch belangrijke details die ertoe kunnen beslissen een touw wel / niet aan te kopen.


Ik vind inderdaad ook niet veel specificaties bij de touwen, maar er is wel per touw een pdf-je te downloaden dat zij de 'technical manual' noemen. Daar staat dan bijvoorbeeld in dat alle touwen getest worden zodat ze voldoen aan UIAA eisen, en die zijn voor bvb de impact force:

The UIAA mandates that the impact force generated on the first fall must be less than 12kN for a single rope. This test uses a static belay with a fall factor of approximately 1.8 or a 4.6meter (15) fall on 2.5 meters (8) of rope. This test demonstrates a very severe fall and generally is not applicable
for real world climbing situation but does give a good basis for comparing the relative elongation characteristics of different ropes. Real world experience has shown that rarely are impact forces higher than 10kN generated during a climbing fall.

Al in al zouden de specificaties inderdaad duidelijker vermeld mogen worden. Misschien zien we iets over het hoofd...
