XEROS technology is a whole new way to manufacture UIAA Certified dry rope that’s more effective, wear resistant, better for the environment, and lower cost—and only available from Sterling.

Wet rope is weaker rope.

The numbers don’t lie: Rope loses 20% to 40% of its strength when wet. And that can happen if you’re caught in a downpour, climbing an icy pitch, or even just dealing with prolonged exposure to high humidity.

The solution? Dry rope.

But it’s not a perfect solution. Traditional dry ropes are made “dry” with an exterior coating that keeps water out. That coating can wear (leaving the rope vulnerable to water), the finish can feel tacky (so it picks up dirt), and the process to coat the rope is labor-intensive—increasing cost and waste.

Sterling wanted to do better. So they went back to the drawing board for what a dry rope could be—and uncovered a whole new way to make dry rope.

Stay strong in the wet

XEROS technology creates a dry rope with next-level performance—and without a sticky, vulnerable-to-wear outer coating. Because of the process, both the core and sheath are protected with XEROS, which reduces performance issues related to sheath slippage. All for a minimal price increase over traditional non-dry rope.
