Sterling’s most advanced self-rescue device puts control in your hands with superior descent control and panic protection. 

The FCX is our newest and most advanced descent control device. It uses a unique cam feature that allows smooth modulation so the user can easily control the speed of descent with one hand and a click-to-neutral feature allows for easy horizontal movement. Side rails prevent glove and sill interference, and a spring-loaded handle stays out of the way until needed, which prevents snagging and tangling.
