XTC - 16 Strand Data

  • Professional Grade
  • Smoother Cover runs well through cammed devices
  • Tightest Cover Braid in the industry 

XTC-16 is CE EN1891 Type A approved. 

XTC White – The economical alternative – This rope was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. XTC is a tight braid consisting of 16 individual strands of polyester. A high twist core of torque balanced polyester keeps the construction firm and round, providing an extra measure of safety. XTC is an excellent choice for both climbing line and bull rope due to its non-snagging, abrasion-resistant construction and excellent energy absorption characteristics. 

XTC Plus and XTC Spearmint – Our finest and most popular – incorporate all of the characteristics of XTC, and these are easier to see in the tree. Fully half of the cover strands are of bright red or bright green extrusion-dyed polyester, resulting in permanent coloration that won’t fade or run with use. In addition to strength and performance, XTC Plus and XTC Spearmint are ideal for color-coding, reducing confusion and increasing the safety of each job. 

XTC Fire – Hi-visibility – now introducing the highest visibility climbers line ever seen in the industry. XTC Fire is specifically designed for the demanding needs of arborists, embodying the same characteristics of XTC ropes Yale has made for the last two decades.
