XTC 24 - Blaze/Bandit/Blue Moon

Custom and Specialty Ropes


XTC 24 - Blaze/Bandit/Blue Moon

Innovative light weight arborist climbing lines in both unique 11mm and a more conventional 11.7mm sizing.

Key Features

  • Competition grade
  • Smoothest cover for mechanical ascension
  • Lowest elongation results in minimal bounce
  • Smaller diameters are also favorable for recreational climbers

Blaze and Bandit – innovative lightweight – a unique 11mm, spliceable, double-braided rope construction boasting a smooth 24-strand braided cover of high-tenacity solution-dyed yarns with ultimate visibility and runs well in mechanical devices. Blaze and Bandit meet CE0120 EN1891 Type-B.

Blue Moon – larger in the hand - same peak performance – A true 11.7mm diameter that combines the lightweight characteristics of 11mm ropes and the more conventional sizing of the 1/2" climbing lines. Blue Moon incorporates our 24-strand “Tite-Braid” cover that virtually eliminates cover milking. The braided- lament polyester core creates a firm rope that provides superior working-flex service life without work hardening.

XTC 24 - Blaze/Bandit/Blue Moon Specifications and Data

Product (Text) Diameter (mm) Average Break Strength *(Lbs) Suggested Design Factor 10:1 **(Lbs) Weight (Lbs/100f)
Blaze and Bandit 11 5,600 560 6.0
Blue Moon 11.7 6,500 650 6.5

* 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.
