DETAILSThe new Dry Shield finish has helped us reduce the diameter on the Harrier, a classic EDELRID rope, without reducing its strength. With the advantage of this tough construction, the Harrier is useable in both the mountains and low-lying crags. The Dry Shield finish protects against moisture and dirt. The Thermo Shield treatment guarantees an agreeable handling even after a lot of use and abuse.
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.
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.
