Take it easy on your ice screws and marginal trad placements. The new X-Draw shock absorbing ice draws reduce the impact of a fall using a special construction that forces the draw to rip apart into a large open loop when a fall exceeds 2.5 kN. The energy of the fall is absorbed and dissipates as the stitches rip apart thereby increasing the chances that the protection will hold. With a factor 1 fall using an 80 kg (176 lbs) test weight and a 10 mm dynamic rope, the impact force is reduced from up to 5.5 kN down to an incredible 2.5 – 3.5 kN. The open loop is still rated to 22 kN once the shock absorbing stitches have been ripped apart completely. A rubber keeper on the rope end keeps the clipping biner securely in place. The nylon shell protects the stitching from the elements and the Dyneema® main loop is hydrophobic so it does not weaken as much as nylon when wet or frozen.
