  • Features

    • UIAA Dry certified built with Sterling XEROS technology
    • Part of the nylon filament manufacturing process, XEROS technology is a permanent core and sheath dry treatment that ensures individual yarn fibers are water resistant
    • Since it's built into the core and sheath, there's no tacky or sticky coating to pick up dirt
    • XEROS is PFOA-free and reduces waste, energy use and labor, all without a price premium
    • Includes a middle mark
    • UIAA 101
    • CE EN 892
    • 95% of the raw rope fibers at Sterling get made into finished products; remaining waste gets recycled or upcycled into non–life safety products
    • Send your used Sterling dynamic rope to the Sterling recycling department so the materials can get a second life; they also accept non-Sterling dynamic ropes
    • Rope manufacturing facility runs on 100% renewable energy
    • Sterling offsets 100% of their carbon emissions by purchasing carbon offsets from Climate Neutral and Arbor Day Foundation

    Made in USA.
