Pre-Order Item: Orders will ship from first available stock. Expected mid-March, 2017.
Scandere is a brand-new 48-strand kernmantle built by Yale to work with the newest climbing hardware. Slightly smaller than 1/2", this line will run well in all modern hardware and is an excellent competition and SRT work line.
Quick Overview: 15/32” diameter, 7,100 ABS, 6.5 lb per 100’.

This great article at Yale Rope's website explains the how the ability of a rope to absorb impact is affected by the elasticity of the rope. Breaking strength is not the only important factor in determining if a rope is right for the job. Dynamic Energy in Arborist Ropes
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboriculutral operations.
Arborist climbing lines are required to have a minimum breaking strength of 5,400 lb (24 kN) when new, and should be no smaller than 1/2” (12.7mm) unless the employee has been trained in the use of smaller line (down to 15/32” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.
Scandere 15/32” meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards, so long as the user has been trained in the use of smaller diameter lines.
The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
