Beal Virus 10mm, 80m, single rope

Beal has almost completely re-designed it's rope collection for this season. The most basic line in their collection (ACTIVE), has been designed to cover a wide range of climbing disciplines; from occasional to intense use and from sport climbing and multi-pitch routes to indoor climbing. Made with the most advanced BEAL technology as far as safety, reliability and handling are concerned, these ropes have excellent impact absorption thanks to their low impact force. They also have an eco-friendly construction, which means they have none of the chemical treatments or dye used on ropes designed for more intense use (e.g. water-repellency treatment).
