The Heron is the new flagship in the EDELRID Dry Line. Its low weight, high strength and excellent handling perfectly complement each other. The Dry Shield finish protects against moisture and dirt, while the EDELRID Thermo Shield finish ensures smooth handling. These characteristics make the Heron the perfect all-rounder. Whether sport routes or winter climbing, the Heron is suitable for all conditions.

Dry Shield

The Dry Shield finish is applied post production in an immersion bath of dry treatment material. Both the core & sheath are treated in this way. The finish is resistant to washing-out, providing a long lasting oleo & hydrophobic coating that keeps water, oily substances & dirt off the fibers. Together with the Thermo Shield treatment, Dry Shield optimizes handling, abrasion resistance & performance. This all helps to improve the lifespan of the rope.

Thermo Shield

The Thermo Shield treatment has been in use at Edelrid for more than 20 years. Thermo Shield is a thermal stabilizing process for the rope that gives it the famous Edelrid handling characteristics and feel. The rope undergoes a heat treatment cure to stabilize and harmonize the individual yarns. This treatment cannot be washed out and ensures a supple rope throughout its working life.

Bluesign certified environmentally clean

Edelrid is the first rope company world wide to successfully certify under the stringent Bluesign standard. Bluesign certifies that throughout all production procedures, all raw materials from the single fibers through to treatments are vetted, ensuring only the most environmentally friendly processes possible are being used.
