Sterling Velocity BiColor 9.8mm Rock Climbing Rope - The Velocity BiColor 9.8 mm rope from Sterling has it all and is the most popular of the Evolution climbing rope series. Just the right amount of stiffness keeps your rope from flopping during critical clips. Its silky smooth sheath withstands abrasion and slides effortlessly to reduce rope drag. Finding the center is easy, quick and accurate, even in low light situations. The BiColor version of the Velocity takes the guesswork out by offering a bright change in color half way down the rope. With the same construction and award winning performance as their single color namesakes, the Sterling Evolution Velocity BiColor 9.8 mm rope has you covered.

    This rope is a workhorse! I love the light feel of it as well as its durability! It has proven to be a fantastic rope so far and the sheath is very strong! Nothing about this rope has disappointed me thus far. I have yet to take a fall on it, but from what I have heard from my friends who also own this rope is that it has great bounce and is not rigid whatsoever! All in all, I think this rope is a great buy and worth the money! It will last as long as you treat it well.



    I've been climbing for about 6.5 years now and absolutely love Sterlings ropes! They feed well, handle well, wear well, and the ladies can't get enough of a man with such a sexy rope! Fun times will be had by all and projects will be completed with the Sterling Evolution!




    Got this rope a few months back and I love it. I got the Yellow Bicolor, and the only reason it doesn't get five stars is that it is already showing dirt...which really is only an aesthetic problem. Also I'm sure that darker colors wouldn't show dirt as soon. This 9.8 feeds more easily than my old 10.2 but is caught by the belay device just as well. It is definitely a stiff rope, which I like, it seems to make it easier to untie a figure 8 after a fall or two. Rope seems to be tough, no fuzz showing on it yet which i'm fairly sure is a result of the dry treatment. Best part: its noticeably lighter than my old 10.2 both when clipping and while hiking.
