This 9.8mm rope is the most popular member of Sterling's Evolution series. It has 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. The Velocity is Sterling's best selling “do it all” rope in the sub 10mm size range, great for sport, trad, steep ice, and hard mixed routes. The lightweight, durability and great handling on this rope makes it perfect for both novice climbers and experienced athletes!

This rope is great. Silky smooth through the draws, has a great "hand," easy to clip, and feels very light to me compared to other ropes I've climbed with. The falls are soft, the dry treatment is excellent. If my Evolution Velocity 9.8 60M had ears, I would serenade it with love songs.
