Lightweight durability evolved.
Sterling's 9.2mm Evolution Aero Dry Climbing Rope gives you a superlight performance on sport, mixed, and ice routes. The Evolution Aero achieves an ultralight weight thanks to Sterling's innovative core construction that also allows for a smoother belay. Pair that core with a durable sheath, and you'll be enjoying this lightweight rope for a surprising amount of time. Sterling treated this Evolution Aero with DryCoat for water-resistance.

What belay device can I use with this rope?
Here is a list of belay devices and the diameter ropes that work with them:
Petzl Reverso 4
Item # PTZ0317
Comments: The Reverso 4 goes down to an 8.9mm rope but I would not use a worn or seasoned Reverso 4 with this 9.2mm Sterling Evolution Aero Dry rope.
Black Diamond ATC Guide
Item # BLD1265
Dia: 9-11mm (Single ropes) 7-11mm (Half & Twin ropes)
Comments: I'd say this might not be the ideal belay device to pair with this rope since it is on one end of the range. This would be a good device if you plan on using the ropes in a half or twin rope system.
Edelrid Mega Jul Belay Device
Item # ELR000K
Comments: This is more the ideal device to pair with this rope as 9.2mm is more in the middle of the range for rope diameters. And the auto-locking feature is a big plus that the other devices don't have.
Mammut Wall Alpine Belay Device
Item # MAM004D
Comments: This would be a better alternative to the Reverso4 or the BD ATC Guide if you are not a fan of the Edelrid Mega Jul.
Mammut Smart Alpine Belay Device
Item # MAM0490
Comments: Some folks love this device while others find it to a bit of a paradigm shift in belay technique but similar to the Mega Jul. It takes a bit of getting used to.
