XTR 16

Double Braid


XTR 16

XTR 16 was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. The tight-braid polyester cover over a bundled parallel core gives a firm, round feel and offers high snag and abrasion resistance.

Key Features

  • Professional grade
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Resists snagging; increased durability

The high-twist, torque-balanced polyester core provides excellent energy-absorbing capabilities. XTR 16 is color coded by diameter for easy identi cation.

XTR 16 Specifications and Data

Diameter (Inches) Average Break Strength *(Lbs) Suggested Design Factor 10:1 **(Lbs) Weight (Lbs/100f)
9/16 7,800 1,560 9.7
5/8 10,000 2,000 10.6
3/4 12,750 2,550 13.3

* 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.
