Take it easy on your ice screws and marginal trad placements. The new X-Draw shockabsorbing ice draws reduce the impact of a fall using a special construction that forces thedraw to rip apart into a large open loop when a fall exceeds 2.5 kN. The energy of the fallis absorbed and dissipates as the stitches rip apart thereby increasing the chances thatthe protection will hold. With a factor 1 fall using an 80 kg (176 lbs) test weight and a 10mm dynamic rope, the impact force is reduced from up to 5.5 kN down to an incredible2.5 , 3.5 kN. The open loop is still rated to 22 kN once the shock absorbing stitches havebeen ripped apart completely.A rubber keeper on the rope end keeps the clipping biner securely in place. The nylon shellprotects the stitching from the elements and the Dyneema™ main loop is hydrophobic so itdoes not weaken as much as nylon when wet or frozen.
