Thin, But not scary thin, the Ion2 9.4 is a high performance, lightweight rope. The new and improved construction includes a thicker sheath, lighter weight, and lower impact force. This rope is great for cragging, working projects, and is light enough to send hard redpoints.

"This rope is fantastic, the best rope ever. Bottom line; a great rope, congratulations to the team.”
“We have been a great feeling climbing with this rope, super strong, and great durability. But the best is, this rope keep his shape along the way, with no fluff even with this sandy condition at RRG. Almost perfect? conclusion: it's now, my favorite rope.”

“The ION2... Is great!!! It could be the best rope Sterling has made so far. I have been climbing non-stop with it since you gave me and I let everyone use and it is still in great shape. It might be slightly less dynamic than the Nano, but it works great... Cheers.”
