Weighing in at only 48 g/m and with a diameter of 8.5 mm, the Beal OPERA 8.5mm Unicore is the lightest and thinnest single-rope on the market—the first single-rope to go below 50 g/m. Adding to that, the OPERA has a lower impact force than any other single-rope, 9mm or thinner. The Beal Opera has been certified as a single, half, and twin. The OPERA utilizes Beal’s best technology and know-how: UNICORE, Golden Dry/UIAA Water Repellent, Thermo Fluid, low impact force, and thick sheath.

Beal is also introducing the first alpine harness to be equipped with Recco Advanced Rescue Technology. While alpine climbing and ski mountaineering, the Beal MIRAGE harness, equipped with a Recco reflector, allows both ground and air rescue teams to accurately locate the climber/skier, year round, day and night. The Recco system is a simple technology that requires no maintenance, battery, or switch. The Recco has an infinite lifetime and its performance does not degrade over time.

Two new Beal helmets are being introduced, the IKAROS and MERCURY GROUP. The IKAROS is a hybrid helmet with a lightweight, highly ventilated ABS shell and an EPS foam liner. The IKAROS is micro-adjustable thanks to a precise adjustment dial and benefits from a magnetic chinstrap buckle. The MERCURY GROUP is a robust helmet with an ABS outer shell, designed for intensive use in a group environment such as on high ropes courses. The inner liner is suspended and easily adjustable with a strong and simple buckle. The MERCURY GROUP is designed to be durable and easy to wash.


Adding to the new line of Beal headlamps, the Beal L80 and FF150 headlamps offer multiple lighting options, including a solid/blinking LED mode while the FF150 is equipped with a battery gauge.
