Progress and innovation are a key factor for technical ropes for sports and  professional purposes. In KORDA’S we attach great importance to the technologies used to develop all our rope range and provide high-quality standard finishes. In this way our users can meet excellent security and performance standards.

Our technological knowledge arises from our broad experience in the vertical world, our core. In this way we have been able to develop own technologies always considering the singularities and specific requirements of each type of rope. KORDA’S has the necessary technologies to deliver ropes with the highest quality and safety levels.

What are the main innovations in terms of rope technology?




Complete bonding of the sheath and core, developed in 2002, making that every part of the rope works at the same time. Elimination of the unpleasant “sock effect” and the slippage of the rope sheath.

Gives the rope greater dimensional stability throughout its useful life and considerably reduce gradual rope shrinkage over time.

titan system


The Titan System is a patented rope manufacturing system which provides significant improvements on the rope.

It incorporates a third structure constituted by a series of filaments running parallel to the rope axis inside the sheath structure, thus transforming it into an element of “armour plating”. With this system, even if the sheath undergoes longitudinal damage it does not tear.

summum system


Summum is the constructive System of the KORDA’S third generation. This join the already known Estability and Titan System, achieving with this a maximum union between core and sheath and an even higher safety, thanks to the addition of the advantages of the two different systems with proved experience.

This is the maximum safety that, until now, can be offered to the technical rope users.

Technology applied to ropes: also in high-quality finishes.



Water repellency treatment according to sections 2.1.2 and 3.2 of the UIAA 101: 2019 Water Repellency standards, which requires a water absorption rate under 5%. Korda’s ICE treatment guarantees less than 2.5% water absorption. Additionally, it provides a greater resistance to abrasion to the rope.

total dry


Thermochemical finish with fluorocarbon. Impermeable, absorbs less water, lasts longer and delays the freezing.


central end mark


Marks on the rope with a special ink that does not affect the rope’s resistance. Clear indication of the rope’s centre-point and 2 different colours on each edge.



High resistance to abrasion and more pleasant to the touch.


The rope is pre-shrunk and treated with additives during manufacture. This finish makes it unnecessary to soak the rope prior to use and minimizes the shrinkage during the usage of the rope.
