We love this video from Edelrid on their rope production process! Be sure to watch it all the way through but here are some highlights:
- We could watch the braiding machine for hours; beautiful how it bobs and weaves - is this where the term comes from???
- The rope drop testing machine is pretty cool as well and you get to see the rope flatten to catch a fall.
- Every rope has a tactile check by a real person as it comes off the assembly line - crazy attention to detail and you have to wonder how calloused those hands are!
The full video below. Enjoy!
