The first PFC-free rope that meets the UIAA water-repellent standard, the Edelrid Swift Eco 8.9mm x 70m dry rope is made from high-quality recycled yarns left over from Edelrid rope production.


  • Unlike other dry treatments, Eco Dry is PFC-free and passes the UIAA water-repellent test by absorbing less than 2% of the rope's weight in water
  • Thermo Shield treatment employs a heat process to stabilize individual yarns, ensuring the rope stays supple throughout its working lifetime
  • Since leftover yarns cannot be planned in advance, each batch is different than the last and gives you a rope that's one of a kind
  • 3D lap-coiled so you can use it right away, without kinking and tangling
  • bluesign® approved; its manufacturing uses 62% less CO2, 89% less water, 63% less energy consumption and 63% less chemicals compared to common ropes


Note: Half and twin ropes are designed to be used in matching pairs (size, length and brand should match). Using a mismatched pair can cause excessive wear on the ropes, exposing you to a higher risk of rope failure. Never climb with only 1 half or twin rope, unless it has also been rated as a single rope.
