• New England Ropes KM III 5/8" Orange

new england rope logo


An exceptional static rope for rappelling, caving, rescue, fixed-rope applications, hauling, and life-safety applications.

A superior handling rescue rope, New England Ropes KM III static kernmantle rope features composite construction, with the continuous filament polyester sheath braided over a continuous nylon fiber core. Featuring a weight-balanced construction with the sheath and the core each representing half the total weight, KM III is torque-balanced to eliminate any spin during a rappel. This provides excellent handling and knot-holding characteristics, as well as rugged protection from abrasion and cutting. The polyester sheath provides added protection from ultraviolet light and chemicals harmful to nylon, while reducing the strength loss and weight gain that occurs when nylon absorbs water.

✔   KM-III’s unique polyester sheath differentiates KM-III from other static ropes. The polyester sheath is balanced with a nylon core to limit rotation, bouncing, and stretch with exceptional UV resistance.

✔   KM-III is NFPA and CE approved, and comes with an NFPA certification tag and CE labels. This is one of the most durable static ropes available with the handling and knotability you expect from New England (TEUFELBERGER).

✔   The sheath of the KMIII is made with a 32 carrier sheath design. 32 carriers provide a middle ground between a stiffer, durable 16 carrier design but its harder to work with and a 48 carrier design that is softer and easier to work with but is not as durable. KMIII combines the better characteristics of both which allows for an incredibly smooth sheath, higher tensile strengths, and superior handling characteristics.
