Sterling's flagship rope and all-rounder for use in virtually any condition, the Velocity 9.8 XEROS is a near-perfect balance of characteristics for a wide variety of climbing styles and conditions. A favorite among world-renowned athletes for working routes, the Velocity is a must-have for kitting out any crag pack.
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.
