Twice a year the outdoor industry descends upon Salt Lake City in a storm of plaid and technical fabric. The objective: to show off their newest gear innovations for the upcoming season. During this January show, our friends at Gear Coop dropped by to chat about our upcoming additions to the Trango line and also to snap a few quick photos.

The past few shows have included additions like the best-selling Crag Pack and Rock Prodigy Training Center, and this show was no different.

Here’s a quick sneak peak of the newest products to join our growing product line (all available March 1, 2015 at

Catalyst 9.0mm

The Catalyst 9.0mm sparks a revolution in skinny rope workloads. Unicore™ technology bonds the sheath and core together for unparalleled performance and the same fall rating as many 10.0mm ropes. This cord is a lightweight solution for everything from hard sends to long alpine routes and outperforms other skinny ropes in the event of sheath damage – why risk it with anything else? Available in 70m and 80m lengths with middle marks and Duo Dry protection on every rope.


First Bolt Draw

Trango’s First Bolt Quickdraw extends the life of all your quickdraws. The rope causes the most wear and tear on the first draw you clip because it runs at a sharp angle compared to higher draws. The unique graphics make this draw obvious when you need it, and the steel wiregate can handle the extra abuse.


Gym Cuts

Never wait for a gym lead rope again. Trango Gym Cuts make indoor lead climbing more fun than ever by offering the outdoor performance you expect in a gym-appropriate length. No more bulging, fuzzy gym cords – Gym Cuts bring a smooth handling, durable solution to any climber’s gym kit. (available in 30m and 40m lengths)
