All MAXIM Glider ropes feature Maxim’s Twill Pattern Technology (TPT), that gives it impressive drag reduction. This unique one-over-one braiding technology results in very supple feel, which makes the Glider series slides through belay devices without kinking. MAXIM Glider excels at day-to-day single pitch cragging, particularly on sharp rock that can chew up ropes. It is incredibly durable, making it a great choice for people or groups looking for a rope that will last a long time and hold up to abuse while sport or trad climbing. What really separates the Glider from other (lead) climbing ropes is the supple feel, easy clips, and superior hand.

These ropes all include Maxim’s Endura DRY treatment in the core yarns.  Select models also feature a 2x-DRY treatment, which means that Maxim also dry treats the sheath for superior water-repellency. This level of treatment meets the UIAA Dry standard. MAXIM Glider ropes are available in 9.9mm, 10.2mm and 10.5mm diameters across a variety of lengths starting at 30 meters and are therefore suitable for many different climbing styles and routes.
