Edelrid's Mesmerizing Rope Manufacturing Process

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!
