Description

Just like the solid Velocity this 9.8mm rope 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.
What makes Sterlings BiColor ropes unique and a leader in industry is the dramatic color change in the middle. Finding the center is easy, quick and accurate, even in low light situations. These ropes have the same construction and award winning performance as their single color namesakes.

Chicks With Picks Gear Review no rating given just a review

In the fall of 2014, when Kitty Calhoun and I made our gear list for climbing Tangerine Trip, a big-wall aid route on El Cap in Yosemite, it was I who said “I got the lead rope”.  I had been climbing with my 9.8mm Evolution Velocity for a summer and it had proven itself with strength, durability, and handling.  Just what you need when you’re about to head up the biggest piece of rock there is in the lower 48!
