Imlay Canyon Gear 9.2mm Canyonero rope (per metre)

Original price was: $4.79.Current price is: $4.31.

The sheath heavy Canyonero excels when durability and robustness are your priorities. It offers exceptional abrasion and cut resistance, reduced water absorption, and is genuinely static.

The larger diametre, combined with a tight braid that produces a very firm rope, offer more friction, making it an ideal rope for beginners, clubs, or heavier canyoners.

The 9.2mm Canyonero excels when durability and robustness are your priorities. A thicker-than-usual sheath (52 per cent) and tighter weave deliver greater abrasion and cut resistance, extending the lifespan of your rope.

The firm hard and larger diametre provide more friction and a higher breaking strength, making it ideal for less experienced canyoners, outdoor clubs, or those who weigh a little bit more.

Imlay ropes are constructed of 100 per cent polyester, delivering a truly static rope which reduces wear by eliminating the “bounce” experienced with many semi-static canyoning ropes. The result is an affordable rope that utilises clever design rather than fancy fibres to provide exceptional durability.

Key advantages:

  • sheath heavy design delivers longer lifespan
  • truly static due to 100 per cent polyester construction
  • tightly woven sheath delivers greater durability
  • less than 1 per cent stretch at body-weight loading
  • resists water absorption and retains strength when wet
  • lightweight and compact

  • Weight: 62.5 grams per metre
  • Materials: Polyester core / Polyester sheath
  • Sheath volume: 52%
  • Elongation (at 225kg): 1.25%
  • Dimensions: 9.2mm diametre
  • Made in: Canada

Imlay canyoning ropes have been produced specifically for the challenging conditions posed by sandstone canyons. The brainchild of Tom Jones — an extremely experienced American canyoneer — these ropes not only perform well and last a long time, but are also very affordable.

Canyoning ropes must handle abrasion from rough and sharp edges, along with exposure to water, grit and grime. By utilising a tightly woven sheath, the load-bearing core of the rope is protected from grit, while also resisting the damage caused by rubbing against rough and sharp edges.

Imlay ropes are constructed of 100 per cent polyester. The advantage of polyester is that it is not only naturally hydrophobic (so it won’t absorb as much water), but is also a naturally static fibre, reducing abseil bounce and abrasion where the rope crosses an edge. (By comparison, Nylon fibres are naturally dynamic and also loosely bond to water molecules, not only becoming heavier but also losing strength in the process).
