Sharma, dude, Chris frickin Sharma. The Sterling Evolution Velocity is the rope that Chris Sharma uses to tackle his hard routes, but don’t forget Daila. She probaly ties into this silky smooth cord as well. The sheath is stiff enough to aid in efficient clipping and the core’s construction is beefy enough to withstand plenty of abuse. At 9.8mm the Velocity is the most popular rope in the Evolution series. So step up and coddle the cord that climbing’s royal couple uses to crush rigs.
