The Classic + braid sheath makes belay devices easier to use due to the friction of the rope on them.
The threads cross each other, grouped two by two to form the sheath of the rope. The roughness of these ropes generates friction with the securing devices, which allows for slower and more controlled manoeuvrability.
Classic + braided ropes are the market standard. They are recommended for everyone, from climbers who are new to this sport to the most advanced..
The Endurance braid sheath promotes sliding over belay devices and extends the lifespan of the rope. The threads cross each other, grouped one by one to form the sheath, creating a smooth, compact and uniform rope surface. In abrasion resistance tests, it resisted 30% more (internal test).It opposes less resistance to friction when rubbing on belay devices and when passing through carabiners and rings in the belay stations.
The one-by-one braiding of the threads better resists the penetration of dust and small particles of dirt, extending the rope’s durability. Endurance braided ropes are recommended for climbers looking for high performance and to push their limits.
Handling the rope during climbing is fast and fluid thanks to the compactness of the braid and progressing along the wall becomes an extraordinary experience.
Fusion is a rope construction system patented by Fixe that prevents the sheath from slipping.
The rope’s performance is extended over time thanks to the firm union of the sheath and the core through a chemical component. This union also helps the rope to work optimally throughout its lifespan. The Fusion system provides an additional safety factor during climbing. If the sheath is cut off or torn, the sheath and the core will remain together, making it easier for the climber to manoeuvre to find the best solution on the wall.
Recommended for those who are looking for a very resistant and high-performance rope or who have to climb on very abrasive and cutting rock walls.
The largest possible number of sheath threads is always used in designing Fixe’s dynamic ropes, according to what the diameter of the rope allows. This decreases the size of the cavities left between the threads, creating a smoother, more uniform rope surface. This surface provides less friction and a greater distribution of wear between the threads, which makes it possible to extend the rope’s lifespan due to wear.
It also protects it from the adhesion of dust and particles that can damage the rope if they penetrate it. A higher thread count brings a softer feel to the rope. Ropes with a diameter greater than 9 mm are composed of 48 threads. The industry standard is 40 threads for ropes with a diameter greater than 9 mm. In 48-thread braids, the friction is distributed more evenly and over a greater number of threads over the entire surface of the rope. Ropes with a diameter of less than 7.5 mm are composed of 32 threads and ropes with a diameter of less than 9 mm are composed of 36 threads.
For all the situations you need to overcome
Nature ropes have no water-repellent treatment. They are not resistant to water absorption and are recommended for use in dry environments.
They are flexible and easy to handle, both when tying knots and in belaying manoeuvres. They are 100% PFC free. PFC compounds are known to be persistent in the environment and to have harmful effects on health and wildlife. Choosing a rope with PFCs reduces the release of these toxic substances into the environment.
Nature threads are easily recognisable at first glance, as their design is made up of four colours, three of which intersect in a serpentine shape.
Dry ropes have a water-repellent treatment on the sheath. This treatment provides resistance to oil, grease and water, preventing some particles from penetrating the rope, protecting its core better and extending its lifespan. It is resistant to abrasion due to the treatment that covers the sheath.
Ropes with Dry treatment are indicated for activities where the rope is likely to get wet, the humidity in the environment is high or there is a high concentration of dust in the terrain.
The design of Dry-treated ropes is composed of two colours.
Full Dry ropes have a water-repellent treatment on the sheath and core. This treatment makes the rope fully waterproof.
The percentage of water absorption for Fixe Full Dry ropes is only between 1 and 2%, broadly complying with the UIAA “Water Repellent” standard, which requires a maximum of 5%. A wet rope can absorb up to 50% of its weight in water, lose resistance in its number of falls and even freeze completely. The Full Dry treatment avoids all these consequences and the waterproofing of these ropes makes them the ideal models for ice climbing and winter mountaineering.
Full Dry provides resistance to oil, grease and water, preventing some particles from penetrating the rope, protecting the core of the rope better and extending its lifespan. They are highly resistant to abrasion due to the protective treatment. The design of Full Dry-treated rope is composed of two colors.
We think of every detail for your safety
The Middle Mark indicates the middle of the rope with a black mark and the white Fixe logo in the middle. The mark tells the belayer that the rope has reached its midpoint.
This marking is useful for quickly locating the middle of the rope when an abseil is to be set up. In the practice of sport climbing, it is an important indicator for the belayer: the Middle Mark warns that the middle part of the rope is passing by and if a mistake is made in calculating the length of the route, the remaining metres of rope may not be enough to lower the rope partner to the floor from the belay station.
The Middle Mark is a different colour than the 8 m Mark, preventing confusion between the two markings.
The 8 m Mark is rope marking system used by Fixe (patent pending). It indicates that there are 8 metres left for the rope to reach the end. The mark is red and the “8 m” logo appears in white in the centre. The mark clearly indicates that the rope is running out, notifying the belayer of the metres remaining.
This marking aims to prevent one of the most common accidents in sport climbing, when the rope reaches the end and, if a knot has not been made at this point (*), it ends up sliding through the belay device and the climber could fall to the ground with serious consequences.
The 8 m Mark is a different colour than the Middle Mark, preventing confusion between the two markings.
* The 8m Mark does not replace the practice of always making a knot
at the end of the rope.
Ultrasonic cutting hardens the rope ends, protects them from wear and minimises sheath slippage. It is achieved by melting the threads of the core and the sheath of the rope through 30,000 micro-movements per second.
This causes the polyamide threads to rub against each other and heat up to the exact temperature to melt gradually from the centre of the rope outwards. Ultrasonic cutting guarantees a total and permanent union of the threads of the sheath with the core, forming a single piece. In addition, it makes it easier to tie and untie knots at the ends of the rope..
Reflector is a trademark patented by Fixe. It is a reflective indicator that is located at both ends of the rope. Both in situations with little natural light (and using frontal lights) and when the sun is reflected on the ends of the rope, it allows you to easily find the end points of the rope.
Thanks to the Reflector, focusing with the front light during a nighttime activity, we will be able to quickly locate the ends of the rope to mount a rappel or do some other kind of manoeuvre on the wall. This marking also makes it easy to fold the ropes or tie a knot quickly at one or both ends.
