Sterling PowerCord

PowerCord, Double the Strength

PowerCord is a 5.9mm accessory cord with a Technora core instead of the standard nylon core. This construction gives PowerCord a MBS of double that of a standard 5.9mm accessory cord. Technora is a high-strength, yet lightweight material making PowerCord a great option for anchor building and haul lines.

Other features of Sterling’s PowerCord include:-
  • An amazing MBS of 19.7kN
  • Available as a 100m roll in orange as pictured, and apolgies, we do not cut PowerCord to length.
  • Other colours and lengths are available for bulk purchase or by special order. Just contact us for more information.

Why We Use PowerCord
We’ve written on article on how we find rigging with PowerCord advantageous. Basically, it opens up options for lighter weight, less bulky solutions which are especially relevant for wilderness and tactical applications.
