"After Diablo 10.2 Unicore Beal has developed the Diablo 9.8 Unicore for more demanding climbers. Due to its very fluid running sheath the 9.8 Diablo performs even better when pulling slack and clipping than ‘classic’ ropes of smaller diameter and lower weight. This rope is dedicated to expert climbers and experienced and vigilant belayers, because its easy running quality does not give the same assurance on belay as a rope of larger diameter."
What is Unicore?:
Astonishing new technology which binds the sheath to the core without affecting the ease of use and suppleness of the rope.
Even under the most adverse conditions, sheath slippage is reduced or totally eliminated, especially in such instances as top roping or active belaying.
Should the sheath be cut or torn, the sheath and core will remain bonded together.
The astonishing Uni Core process allows the sheath and the core to stay bonded together allowing the user to be able to pass any damaged section using proper techniques, he doesn't remain stuck on his rope. The Uni Core process enhances safety when rope is used in extreme situations. This is possible due to the fact that this new process:
• Sheath slippage is eliminated.
• Allows safe escape should the sheath be cut.
• Makes rope cutting easy with a simple blade without any heating.
• Reduction of shrinkage in water by more than 50 %.
