Introducing Vortex SD – with SamsonDryTM, Samson's exclusive hydrophobic coating. The lightest premium climbing line available of its size, adding SamsonDry to Vortex limits water absorption to < 5% keeping your line lighter and safer in wet conditions. Vortex SD meets UIAA standards, has excellent knot-holding ability, works well with hardware, and is great for footlocking.
Working outside year-round means your ropes get wet. The SamsonDry is a revolutionary hydrophobic coating that reduces water uptake in rope by 95% - keeping it lighter and safer in wet conditions.
The SamsonDry climbing lines went through rigorous lab and field testing to ensure they would meet or exceed Samson's expectations. They weren't disappointed. The strength and elongation specs were outstanding, and how the lines worked with hardware got great reviews from the test climbers. And SamsonDry ropes remained Samson dry in wet weather.
