Dyneema® Cruise ropes are made with a HT Polyester braided cover, and a braided Dyneema® core, all lines have intermediate covers to reduce core / cover slippage. This rope has been designed as an upgrade to our 100% Polyester ropes and is lighter with higher strength and lower stretch.
Elongation is based on figures taken from tests across the diameter range, to produce an average figure.
Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, is respected as the premium brand for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMwPE). We offer many ropes produced using Dyneema® fibres including single braids and double braids. We use Dyneema® SK99, Dyneema® SK78 and Dyneema® DM20 fibres to produce our ropes. These different types of Dyneema® fibre are used to produce ropes for specific applications.
