Sterling FCX Descender



Introducing Sterling's latest innovation - the FCX. It is an advanced descent control device designed to revolutionize descent for firefighters and saddle hunters. The FCX features a unique cam design that ensures smooth modulation, allowing effortless speed control with just one hand during descent. The "click-to-neutral" function allows seamless horizontal movement, while elevated side rails prevent glove and sill interference, ensuring smooth operation. Sterling crafts the FCX from precision-machined 7075-T6 aluminium, offering unparalleled performance and safety with automatic locking when weighted, controlled braking, and a spring-loaded handle that stays out of the way until needed. Experience the next level of descent control with the FCX by Sterling.
