The Diablo has the running characteristics of a smaller diameter rope with the handling and security of a 10.2mm.
In the past Unicore technology was reserved for semi static ropes only. UNICORE technology is now available on 2 BEAL dynamic ropes: DIABLO 10.2 mm and DIABLO 9.8mm
BEAL has succeeded in effectively linking the core and sheath of these dynamic ropes in a way that limits movement between the two parts, so that they work better together.
Dynamic ropes benefiting from the UNICORE process suffer less sheath slippage, stay supple, have good handling and have a longer lifetime.
By having a more free-running sheath than on a "classic" rope, friction against the rock and through karabiners is reduced, resistance to abrasion is improved, and the effort of pulling slack and clipping is greatly lessened.
The climber has the sensation of handling a much thinner and lighter rope because of the increased running fluidity, whilst retaining the assurance of a rope of higher diameter.
