    A worthy companion in the vertical world.

    Climbing gear all boils down to safety and function, and the Sterling Evolution Velocity Bicolor Dry Rope offers plenty of both. As the name promises, the Evolution Velocity Bicolor features a central pattern change to help you quickly and safely locate the middle of your cord. With an impact force rating of under 9kN and a weight of just over 60 grams per meter, this rope is perfect for when you're ready to redpoint that pesky project. Dry treatment helps prevent the absorption of unwanted water weight during alpine pursuits.

    Yay I finally got this rope

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I have been eyeing up this rope for a while, but as it is not easily available in New Zealand I got this when on a trip to the US recently.
    I've only used it for a couple of days indoors and outdoors so far, but the rope feels lovely straight-away - soft enough to make clipping easy.
    Looking forward to using it some more!

    The perfect rope

      I have two of these ropes, the 60m and the 70m. My 60 meter is still in pretty good shape after 3 years of pretty hard use and it's only sign of wear is that it has gotten a little fatter but still handles like a dream. The sheath is still in very good shape even with a good amount of being run through dirt and sharp rocks with minimal fuzz and no damage to the sheath. I just picked up the 70 a few weeks ago and I almost forgot how amazing this rope is when it's fresh. Best rope I have ever used.

      Great Rope

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great rope. I've used it all over the country on granite, sandstone, sharp dolomite, in the sun and the rain. Love the bicolor pattern too. Makes rope management easier.

      Great rope, blinding color at first!

      Love this rope, been my go to for 2 years now and has now gone into retirement. I'm buying the same one for new adventures!

      As stated before... the color when you first use it... holy moly! You can see it from the parking lot of a 3 mile hike in... it's insane. You feel like a serious "bro" on the route, BUT, it turns into quite a nice green after 15 pitches or so!

      Reliable rope

      We really love this rope. It is a necessity to have a 70 meter rope if you live in the Wasatch Range. This one is great, as the bicolor pattern keeps you in the know on where you are, for those routes that are cutting it a little close. :) It's a bit thinner, which is great for not getting too heavy while getting some added length.

      Reliable rope

      Nice Rope!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've used this rope a several days at crags in TN - really like it. Handles very well, like BiPattern. I give it 4 stars only because 5 is pretty hard to earn.


        This rope is great! I got the super yellow color, and fair warning it is obnoxiously bright during your first 5-6 days climbing on it. I've used it for a few weeks now, and once dirty it is still beautiful, but can't be seen from 3 miles away like the new rope.

        Great So Far

          This rope seems to be everything that I want in a rope. The only thing that remains to be seen is durability.
          -great cool bi-color
          -nice and lightweight
          -perfect feel- seems thinner than it is
          -doesn't get tangled at all

          My only complaint is that in its short life, it seems to pick up dirt rather quickly even though I use a tarp.

          This rope has a dry treatment, right? If...

          This rope has a dry treatment, right?

          If so, what is the name of the dry treatment that sterling rope put on it?
