The PMI Hudson Classic Sport Max Wear Static Rope has been at the heart of mountaineering and caving all around the world for over 30 years. The HCS Max Wear rope has extreme durability and substance that you can rely on with even greater abrasion resistance than the HCS. PMI designed this rope to the exacting Cordage Institute Life Safety Rope requirements with a hard-wearing 16 carrier nylon sheath and a static core design. The Max Wear Sheath has greater tension, yet reduced knotability. This rope is ideal for situations when abrasion resistance is the most important factor.
