Millet LIR- Super durable & great hand

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Millet Triaxiale ropes are awesome. The core strands are braided into 3 main bundles as opposed to 12-16 as in traditional cable ropes. What this does is decreases the internal abrasion in the core (think of core strands rubbing together), so the rope holds its diameter much longer. Millet is the only rope manufacturer that is using this system.

And this low impact series is cool because it uses 66% less energy in the manufacturing process. The dying of ropes takes a ton of water, and Millet has a process by which they simply use less dye, and thus less water and energy. So you get a more eco-friendly rope that actually lasts much longer than the "big wig" rope companies!
