Mammut Core Protect Rope wins ISPO Award 2024

Teufelberger is proud that with the Mammut Core Protect Rope, our long and trusted partner Mammut, unveils a revolutionary climbing rope that epitomizes the pinnacle of safety and innovation. Featuring the patented Core Protect technology with an additional aramid protective layer, this rope offers significantly enhanced cut resistance without compromising on weight, dynamics, or handling compared to standard climbing ropes.

Despite the high quality of modern climbing ropes, accidents involving cut ropes can still occur, particularly on Alpine climbing tours, around sharp edges, or when navigating through cracks. Even on sport climbing routes with worn, fixed carabiners, sharp edges pose a potential risk to the rope. The Mammut Core Protect Rope is the response to these risks, marking a significant advancement in climbing rope technology.

Technological breakthrough with market-leading comfort

The primary focus was to craft a climbing rope prioritizing saving lives through increased cut resistance, while maintaining conventional rope behavior and performance. The Mammut Core Protect Rope not only upholds the standards of safety but also elevates climbing performance and safety.

An additional protective layer of aramid, known for its cut resistance and strength, surrounds the inner core of the rope. This layer is strategically positioned between the outer cover and the inner core, both made of polyamide 6, known for its dynamic properties. The aramid sheath is braided with excess length into the rope, allowing it to fully unfold under tension over sharp edges to protect the load bearing core without exposing the Aramid  to maximum fall energy. The Aramid is positioned beneath the outer cover, which shields the it from UV radiation and reduces wear on carabiners and safety devices.

Teufelberger is proud partner of Mammut and the product development is the result of their strong collaboration. The Mammut Core Protect Rope won the OutDoor by ISPO Award 2024.
