Moosejaw Staff Pick "I use the bicolor version of the Evolution Velocity rope for most of my climbs. It's a great size for almost anything you are going to hit up, light enough to pack for some distance, but still heavy duty enough to take a beating. I think it is a good value too because it can take 6 big falls. The Evolution Velocity is dynamic enough to absorb a lot of the energy of a fall, and I have not had the sheath loosen up at all. The bicolor is a really nice feature too because when you are belaying both the climber and belayer can easily see which end they need to clip into." Jeff - Moosejaw Secret Headquarters
The Evolution Velocity 9.8mm Rope by Sterling has it all and is our most popular of the Evolution series. 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. This is the rope of choice for Chris Sharma and is what he uses for working the toughest routes.
FEATURES of the Evolution Velocity 9.8mm Rope by Sterling
"For the price and quality, the Velocity 9.8 can't be beat!"
I've tried several different brands of rope over the years, and I just keep coming back to Sterling. Sterling ropes (at least for me) tend to hold up over time considerably longer than other brands, especially at 9.8mm for sport climbing. I absolutely love the way the rope feeds, handles, and the weight. Highly recommend it to everyone!
Recently picked up the Sterling Evolution Velocity and love it! The hope handles so well - very smooth through the belay device and, believe it or not, I love the weight of this rope when I'm climbing. 9.8mm is thick enough to make me feel secure but not too thick that it drags me down when I'm climbing. We all know that Sterling makes a great rope and this is the mother of them all.
"Durable but super long for indoor climbing"
Went with the 70M rope instead of the 60M because it was ~$10 more and I would use it for outdoor rope climbing (eventually). It's awesome rope (I've climbed with other brands), I love the way it feels when I catch my partner or when I fall off a climb. Super durable and the colors are rad! You will not be disappointed.
Bought this for my girlfriend as a birthday gift and she loves the extra weight and length of a 70 meter rope. The bicolor pattern is helpful and the sheath has held up well so far. The rope twists a bit but not enough to cause problems. All in all, this is a great rope.
Can't go wrong when you buy sterling ropes and the velocity is perfect for sport climbing. Light enough with the 9.8mm and feeds slack through the grigri2 like butter. Just enough stiffness for clipping but still soft right out of the bag. My new favorite rope.
bought as my first rope. I didnt know what to buy so i got this. it is very very dynamic and almost tough to tr on it has so much give. but rope is attractive and high visibility. taken some abuse over the summer so far and is holding up great. even with those amature mistakes we all make.
This is a really great rope that compromises well between weight, thickness, and durability. At 9.8mm you're getting a rope that is lighter than 10+mm ropes while still providing sufficient durability. It is light and easy to clip into quick draws on lead climbs, handles very smoothly. The rope has no trouble feeding through any atc or gri gri device. Additionally, the price makes it hard to find something comparable from any other brand. Sterling makes great ropes at a fair price, check it out.
Guaaauuuuu!!! Is very light!!! It is a strong rope without being too thick. Smooth handling. And is a pleasure to fall with this rope.9.8 mm makes it versatile enough to be used for just about anything.It´s been with me in sport climbing, traditional climbing, walking in glaciers, top roping. It has more lives that a cat!!!I think it is not cheap. Fortunately I bought it at clearance price.Totally recommended.
The size is great, you don't have to worry about whether it will be effective with assisted locking devices or not, which is nice if the people you climb with have a lot of diverse gear. The Dry treated is always nice, with a lot of stretch, and it can really take a beating.
