11mm (7/16”) • 24-strand • 6,000 lb ABS • 2.2% elongation at 10% ABS • 5.6 lb per 100' • spliceable

Velocity SamsonDry incorporates the new SamsonDry technology into lightweight performance 24-strand. SamsonDry is a hydrophobic treatment that makes this rope shed water. If you work in the rain, you know how much rope can soak up water, getting heavier and more difficult to handle. SamsonDry cuts the water uptake dramatically, meaning your ropes behave more consistently regardless of the conditions. Samson Dry Technology coating reduces water absorption from 45% of original rope weight (without coating) to 2% with coating.

Samson's Velocity is a lightweight 11mm premium arborist rope developed for tree care professionals who need quick and easy access to the tops of trees without being weighed down. Velocity has a unique construction, being a 24 strand spliceable double braid. It maintains a spliced strength of 6,000 lb. Right out of the bag this rope has a broken in feel, is very flexible and runs well through hardware.

ANSI Z133-2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations.

Arborist Climbing Ropes 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.

Samson Velocity SamsonDry meets ANSI Z133-2017 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.

Rated: Excellent Review by: Ryan (owner/manager)

“I originally purchased some ArborMaster Hawkeye to work with my Petzl Zig Zag; however, even though the Petzl states that it'll run that size rope... it doesn't. I wrote WesSpur and NGD recommended I try this rope out. I couldn't be more pleased. I have run this on a number of North Carolina Pines and this rope runs SMOOTHLY through the Petzl. I highly recommend this rope for any mechanical device. This will now be my go-to rope for all future climbing! Thanks WesSpur for both the recommendation and the fast product delivery!”
