The Sterling Ion R 9.4 XEROS offers easy handling and durability in a lightweight, mid-range size. With a firm, tactile feel that is easy to clip, the smooth sheath reduces rope drag and feeds well through gear. The unique sheath construction is durable and compatible with a multitude of gear.
Sterling's proprietary XEROS technology creates a dry rope with next-level performance—without a sticky, vulnerable-to-wear outer coating. Because of the process, both the core and sheath are protected with XEROS, which reduces performance issues related to sheath slippage. All for a minimal price increase over traditional non-dry rope. XEROS is also better for the environment and costs much less than other dry treatments.
