HOW TO BUY  

XTC 12

XTC 12 is a "nubbier" hollow braid offering lower weight and excellent abrasion resistance. Built to be round and stay round, XTC 12 is a 12-strand single braid of polyester/"Para-ep" Olefin.

Key Features

  • Commercial grade
  • Single braid construction eliminates the core
  • Nubby construction for hand climbers

This all-synthetic rope resists rot and mildew, and performs equally well in both wet and dry conditions. XTC 12 is identified by one yellow tracer. XTC 12 is a commercial-grade single-braid construction that eliminates the core and adds nubby construction for hand climbers. It is an economical choice for a range of climbing needs. XTC 12 meets CE0120 EN1891 Type-B.

Buzzz Line is available in 100% orange solution dyed polyester or solid white. The strand is laid, much like our 16-strand products, which are to maximize abrasion resistance. The braid is tight to prevent snagging but supple enough to make handling and throwing a snap. All polyester maximizes the tensile strength, while offering an enhanced ability to absorb shock over our other 12-stranded products.

* Average break strength is based on spliced rope or capstans samples. Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the design factor.
** Suggested design factor 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 suggested design factor constitute hazardous shock load and would void the suggested design factor recommendation. The end user is responsible for choosing the correct design factor specific to their application.
