The Agility presents a life-saving idea that, really, all ropes should use: a dye—“Red Flag” contrast dye, which stands out starkly against the rope’s silky, bright-yellow 1×1 Spyder Weave—for its final five meters, to warn about the inbound rope end. The Agility also has a mid marker, but the red ends were the big selling point, not only for safety while lowering or rapping but also for easily finding the rope ends in the rope bag. The 70m I tested had Duo Dry treatment, and held whippers and fed like a dream; it weighs 56 g/m and also comes in an 80m length.
