Yalon is a double-braided rope constructed of a nylon core and sleeve. It offers high energy absorption, controlled stretch, and exceeds the strength requirements of MIL-DTL-24050.
Yalon is easily spliced and can be purchased with our optional Maxijacket coating for enhanced abrasion protection or to color code lines for a given application. Available in solid white or solid black.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope’s rated working load constitute hazardous shock load and would void the normal working-load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and the safe use of rope.
Green working 796 ft. lbs./lb.
Red ultimate 11,871 ft. lbs./lb.
Specific Gravity: 1.14
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry Yalon is 2 milli-amperes when tested at 100kV per Yale Method 712-1701 Rev 1 "Routine Production Test." Absorbed and entrained moisture or impurities will increase rope’s conductivity dramatically.
