Roca has been making ropes for over 125 years and is well known in Europe. All Roca ropes are CE certified.

One of the lightest and most effective ropes on the market. It is ideal for extreme sport climbing. Easy to handle and clip carabiners to. Excellent shock absorbency properties. HARD CHOC System included. The new rope from ROCA in 9.8 mm is designed for sport climbing routes. Combines lightness, durability and works fine in all semi automatic belay divices. Excellent for sport routes and multi-pitch equipped routes.

Hard Choc technology: A rope's weak point is its resistance to an impact on a rough rock edge. Conventional ropes break when submitted to this type of fall. HARD CHOC technology passes this test: a fall on a piece of metal that has a 90° angle and a rounded edge with a radius of 1 mm.
