However their Rondo trousers have struck the balance between bold and functional, and look set to topple the Montone from the E9 best-seller spot. The Rondo is characterised by its trademark deep round pockets, 2 on the front and one on the rear, and has evolved into 3 variants, the Rondo, Rondo Art, with a graphic on the pockets, and Rondo Story, with a contrast pocket colour. Made from 97% cotton, 3% elastane the Rondo is lightweight and comfortable, yet durable. The waist is elasticated and the fly also has a zip and snap button. There are elastic cords on the ankles for adjustment to ensure the trousers don't obscure the view to your footholds. Building on the success of the Rondo, E9 introduced the Onda, a ladies version, also with a Story variant, with all of the stylish features of the Rondo.
Distributed by Andy and John Earl of the County Climbing Company there has been a rapid expansion of shops stocking E9 clothing over the past couple of years.
