Take it easy on your ice screws and marginal trad placements. The new X-Draw shockåÊabsorbing ice draws reduce the impact of a fall using a special construction that forces theåÊdraw to rip apart into a large open loop when a fall exceeds 2.5 kN. The energy of the fallåÊis absorbed and dissipates as the stitches rip apart thereby increasing the chances thatåÊthe protection will hold. With a factor 1 fall using an 80 kg (176 lbs) test weight and a 10åÊmm dynamic rope, the impact force is reduced from up to 5.5 kN down to an incredibleåÊ2.5 ‰ÛÒ 3.5 kN. The open loop is still rated to 22 kN once the shock absorbing stitches haveåÊbeen ripped apart completely.åÊA rubber keeper on the rope end keeps the clipping biner securely in place. The nylon shellåÊprotects the stitching from the elements and the Dyneemaå¨ main loop is hydrophobic so itåÊdoes not weaken as much as nylon when wet or frozen.
