Material

Dyneema®

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.       

Cordura®

Cordura® fibres are used in some of our ropes to provide extra grip, especially when handling the ropes for sheets or where additional holding power is required in Clutches and Jammers. Cordura® is a form of Nylon with a texturized finish.
