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.


Outdoor Retailer – Sterling Rope

There are two types of rope; Dynamic Kern Mantle that is used for climbing and stretches to absorb the energy of a fall and Static which is used for rescue work, rappelling and hauling because there is little to no stretch.

Search and Rescue teams constantly demand that industry push the envelope, balancing size and weight of ropes with performance. Sterling offers the TechStatic line to satisfy these requirements. It incorporates Technora offering increased abrasion, cut and heat resistance.

TechStatic offers three different diameters as standard ropes. From right to left, the largest is a 9.5mm called the Tactical Response which offers 27kn of strength. Basically, the same strength as a more traditional 11mm rope. Next is the 7.5mm. It’s a 25kn rope utilizing 100% Technora fibers and integrates perfectly with the F4 escape system. That’s a mini evacuation or access system. It’s often used by Snipers to get in and out of remote hides. Finally, the 6mm rope is used when space and weight are at a premium. Offering 15.5kn, you still get a 10-to-1 safety advantage.


All of the Sterling ropes are offered in various color schemes. Additionally, Sterling has a more extensive line of ropes for more specialized applications. All Strerling Rope Co ropes are Made in USA.
