With its weight of 48 grams per meter, the OPERA 8.5 is the lightest and thinnest single rope on the market. The first to weigh less than 50 grams.
A true concentrate of all BÉAL's know-how, it combines several technological innovations to offer a resistant rope that is both ultra-light and ultra-fluid. With its low impact force, OPERA 8.5 is a rope designed for the most demanding climbers, while remaining versatile. In fact, it is also certified as a double and twin rope.
The OPERA 8.5 rope is not only ultra-light and ultra-fluid. It incorporates UNICORE technology for greater strength by making the core and sheath of the rope integral.
