Most of the whitewater professionals agree to have a rope on ourself when on water. Does not really help to have a rope on the raft or in he kayak when we get separated from it.

This one is equiped with a high quality quick release buckle. So if You need you release but it stays on when it needs to. Also the closing cap does not allow the rope to escape from the bag, so you are safe from your own rope twistting around your body while in the water.

The special rope construction is extremely resistant on abrasion and dirt.
Due to the tight cover the rope might get a little stiffer but the dirt and little gravel parts can not enter the rope-core so easily. The cover is sensitive like other polypropylene ropes but it is much more resistant on abrasion break - due to the polyester material in its core. see rope tests here...
We are developping new ropes to get rid of the stiffness and combine more advantages. 3 new development of ropes has been tested and 5 new design is under test now. The tested ropes are including new materials and new waiving techniques. Implementation of Dyneema and Vectran has been tested. According to the current results the ropes are going to stay really similar but softer. Still working on new cover for the 10mm ropes for better abrasion resistance.
