This thin rope, very well adapted to technical canyoning, nevertheless requires sustained care and appropriate technique during descents.
Its vivid colour allows it to be recovered easily to allow rope descent in the water flow.
Its diameter allows it to remain supple after shrinkage to facilitate knotting and bag stuffing.
This rope has very low stretch (2,4%) due to the presence of very static Vectran yarn in the core. On shrinking, the rope has a tendency to bunch slightly because the Vectran does not contract. This effect does not have any consequences for the use of Aqualine.
Under the effect of repeated soakings the rope’s length may reduce by up to 10%.
