    • Dry treatment?
    • Thanks for the question. The Diablo ropes do not have a dry treatment. The Joker Unicore 9.1mm and The Stinger III 9.4mm are two of Beal's single ropes that do have dry treatments.

Beal's Diablo 9.8 Unicore was developed for demanding climbers. Due to its very fluid-running sheath the 9.8 Diablo performs better when pulling slack and clipping than ‘classic’ ropes of smaller diameter and lower weight. This rope should only be used by experienced and vigilant belayers, because its easy running quality does not give the same assurance on belay as a rope of larger diameter.
The Diablo 9.8 is made with Unicore technology, an astonishing process bonding rope sheath and core without affecting the rope's suppleness. If the sheath is cut or torn, the core and sheath remain bonded together, resulting in a safer, stronger rope. See the Video tab for more info on this great feature.

These products have been engineered from the best materials by the most respected manufacturers in the outdoor industry. It's about safety at all times. Trust a hold with active pro cams that expand into cracks from Black Diamond's Camalot C4 family or leave worry out of the game with a passive pro nut sized just right to slide into your crag from makers like Metolius and Trango.
