OR Summer Market – Sterling Ropes

Sterling Ropes has redesigned one of their mainstays. The Nano IX has been slimmed down from a 9.2mm to a true 9mm rope. Intended for sport routes, ice or mixed climbing, the Nano IX, it’s certified as a single, half and twin rope. It’s available in a variety of colors including OD.


While working on making the Nano IX leaner, they also came up with two new ropes, the AERO and HELIX. They redesigned their cores. They use a thinner diameter fiver but there are more of them. Externally this means a heavier and more durable sheath for longer life with a more durable core system offering better handling. The AERO is 9.2mm and the HELIX is 9.5mm.
