Superstatics – that’s the way we called our freediving rope, because it has a super power – it practically doesn’t stretch!
Finding a good freediving rope is a huge problem. Even static climbing ropes by standards must compensate a jerk and have an elongation of 3%. What is 3%? At the first glance it may seem that it is not so much, but if you dive to 100 meters then an elongation of 3% is equal to 3 meters! Imagine that you have 100 meters of rope, but in fact the bottom plate will be at 103 meters. An unpleasant surprise, right? The other example is that you are going up on FIM from 100 meters and with each pulling up the rope springs like a rubber band. It is also not the best experience that you can feel at a depth of 100 meters without fins.
That is why we set a goal to develop a special rope for freedivers that is, in a word, perfect. It does not stretch and at the same time is soft, pleasant to the hands and provides reliable grip.
One more advantage of our rope is that it is sinking in the water. If you have ever worked with a floating rope, then you know what a mess it can make on the surface when you take out the bottom weight. This always cause inconvenience to you and others, but can even be dangerous if you get tangled. Therefore, our rope is sinking to make your diving experience safe and comfortable.
Furthermore, we know that the knots and loops make the ropes a bit shorter, so we add 1 meter to your rope for free to be sure that your freediving computer will show a round number when you will reach your next Personal Best.
