Tachyon is a new entry into light-weight climbing lines. Tachyon has an impressive strength of 7,100 lb. for a line that is only 11.5mm! Tachyon features improved grip and reduced hand fatigue, and will run well in hardware designed for 11mm ropes.

Revolutionary Flexifirm Core Technology results in a lightweight 11.5mm climbing line that stays firm and round while permitting spliced eyes in one or both ends of the line using a double braid splice. The product's firm yet flexible design and superior strand definition significantly improve friction hitch performance without the "bagginess" that occurs with other 11mm ropes.

Quick Overview: 7/16” diameter, 7,100 ABS, 5.8 lb per 100’.

ANSI Z133-2012

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 7/16” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.

This rope 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.
