Popular do-it-all performer is durable with great handling
Versatile and varied, the Velocity 9.8 is Sterling's quintessential all-rounder. Suited for both rock and ice, the Velocity is the flagship of their lineup: lightweight, durable, long-lasting and easy to handle. It sports just the right amount of stiffness, so your rope doesn't flop during critical clips, and its silky smooth sheath withstands abrasion and slides effortlessly to reduce rope drag. A favorite among world-renowned athletes for working routes, the Velocity is a must-have for kitting out any crag pack. Please note, Olive Drab is not typically stocked by Sterling and may have a longer backorder window.
