Sterling Debuts Advanced, Lightweight Canyoneering Equipment: CanyonLux™ Rope and Blitz™ Bag


Sterling Rope Company, Inc.’s new CanyonLux rope and Blitz bag cleverly deliver what advanced canyoneers have been asking for: light, rugged and packable gear that thrives in rough, wet, obstacle-ridden canyon environments. When used together, this rugged bag and rope combination allows canyoneers to be quick and nimble in challenging canyon environments.

The CanyonLux offers the following:

  • 8mm diameter that is lightweight and easy to handle
  • Constructed with a blended Technora®/polyester sheath for visibility and abrasion and water resistance
  • A revolutionary dual core comprised of Spectra® and polypropylene to reduce sheath slippage and add strength

“We’re really excited to launch the CanyonLux” says Sara Fleetwood, product engineer of the CanyonLux. “As a result of our extensive testing, we’ve developed a lightweight and packable rope with minimal sheath slippage that delivers everything advanced canyoneers need in their exploration rope.”

The Blitz bag features include:

  • Constructed with buoyant and ultra-durable materials for the toughest canyoneering expeditions
  • Stand-up and stay-open feature allows for easy packing
  • Holds up to 250’ of 8.0 mm CanyonLux
