Climbing rope

Nigma 12 mm

It’s an American-style climbing rope, a double braid with 24 strands.


The NIGMA is a 12 mm climbing rope.

Like for the ARGIOPE, FTC has chosen bright colours and mixed them within the strands of the  cover, so that it is very easy to spot in the tree.

The choice of a 100 % polyester rope has given great results: the diameter is very stable over time, it doesn’t swell. Due to its braiding, the rope also is very resistant to abrasion.

FTC also splices the NIGMA with the Slim TECH® splice - that passes through mechanical prusiks like the ZigZag, the SpiderJack etc.

Comes in 20 m (65,6 ft), 30 m (98,4 ft), 40 m (131,2 ft), 50 m (164 ft) and 60 m (196,8 ft). Other lengths available on request.

Can be spliced on one or both ends.
