Sterling Fusion IonR 9.4mm x 60m DRY XP

Bryce’s Choice
Bryce’s take: 

Voted the world's best rope manufacturer 2015 & 2016 8a.nu Great sending rope, dry treated for mixed or alpine. The IonR is now my personal rope and it is wearing really well.


The IonR is the largest diameter rope in the fusion range. The core construction improves all the specs, but retains the handling characteristics that won the original such a loyal following. The most substantial rope of the Fusion series, it remains a lightweight, high-performance entrant. It's unique design is manufactured by first twisting multiple colored fibers into a single sheath-strand and then braiding the sheath to create the speckled pattern. It's diameter is a great size for intermediate climbers looking to match a lightweight rope with performance while knowing that the diameter isn't too thin for a beginner belayer.
