Arbor Elite is the new ideal entry level climbing rope, offering excellent value for money. The Arbor Elite rope consists of a 16-strand braided polyester cover and parallel nylon cores. It features excellent knot holding capabilities and feels good to hold when climbing. The durability of this rope is increased by a strong twist in the cover material. During use, the cover is compacted onto the core, which further enhances stability. Slaice is a registered termination of Teufelberger. It is a unique combination of stitching and splicing and offers significant advantages over conventional stitching and splicing techniques, such as being more flexible, compact and lightweight enhancing safety when working in trees. Regular spliced ropes also tend to have a thickened portion which in the case of the Slaiced Arbor Elite rope is practically non existent, and hardly exceeds the ropes diameter.
