This rope has it all and is our most popular of the Evolution series.
Just the right amount of stiffness, so your rope doesn't flop during critical clips and its silky smooth sheath withstands abrasion and slides effortlessly to reduce rope drag. This is the rope of choice for Chris Sharma and is what he uses for working the toughest routes. The Velocity is our best selling all-rounder rope in the sub 10mm size range, great for sport, trad, steep ice, and hard mixed routes. The lightweight, durability and great handling on this rope makes it perfect for both novice climbers and experienced athletes!
The Evolution Velocity 9.8 is the go-to rope for Chris Sharma when working routes. Now available in a limited edition Sharma Signature custom pattern designed by Chris. The proceeds from the Sharma Signature Rope benefit the Sharma Fund , a charitable organization dedicated to giving underprivileged kids the enriching experience of outdoor rock climbing.
