The ION2 is the largest diameter rope in Sterling's Fusion range. Its unique design is manufactured by first twisting multiple colored fibers into a single sheath-strand and then braiding the sheath to create the speckled pattern. Its diameter is a great size for intermediate climbers looking to match a lightweight rope with performance while knowing that the diameter isn't TOO thin for a beginner belayer.

  • Diameter: 9.4mm
  • Type: SINGLE
  • Weight: 57g/M
  • Static Elongation: 9.5%
  • Dynamic Elongation: 35.7%
  • Impact Force: 8.1kN
  • UIAA Falls: 5


Great all around skinny rope Review by chrisc
I bought this rope originally for a sport climbing trip to the Red River Gorge but it has proven to be a great all around rope for me. It gives a super soft catch when projecting overhanging sport routes, reduces rope drag on rope stretching trad pitches, and stays dry when climbing ice. It felt nice and broken in from the start and has a great handle to it. I have been pleasantly surprised with it's durability for being such a thin cord. After two seasons of regular use it is just starting to show signs of wear but is by no means near the end of it's life. My one complaint might be that it does not come equipped with a middle maker.
