The Sterling HTP (High Tenacity Polyester) was the first 100% polyester static rope on the market.

Initially designed for industrial rope applications, the 9mm version has been embraced by canyoners and cavers seeking a truly static abseiling rope.

The twisted core construction creates an incredibly strong and static rope, with well under 1 per cent stretch for even the heaviest canyoners and an impressive 20kN breaking strength.

The sheath delivers great abrasion and UV resistance while ensuring the rope remains supple and easy to work with, even after extensive use.

This rope takes advantage of the inherent strengths of polyester, which is naturally hydrophobic (so it doesn’t absorb as much water), naturally static (reducing abseil bounce and abrasion) and has exceptional UV resistance, resulting in a longer life-span.

This rope excels when durability, value for money and robustness are your priorities.
