The Imlay Canyon Gear Canyon Fire rope is the first rope designed for Colorado Plateau canyoneering. Since the sheath is what counts, we added material there to make a sheath-heavy rope – 56% sheath versus the norm for static ropes of 50%. It gives both more to hold onto and increased abrasion-resistance.
The materials are 100% polyester, so the sheath and core work together, and both are hydrophobic. Tightly woven for long life, it mellow slightly with the first couple of rappels to settle into a state of firm knotability. The Canyon Fire is 100% static resulting in no bounce, reduced sawing across edges, and easier use in canyons.
Elongation @390lbf: 1.2%
Tensile Strength: 4100lbf
