VectranŽ [PU] with PU treatment

The main feature of the Vectran® fiber is having a near zero creep if used under loads up to 50% of the breaking load. Vectran® braids are ideal when used under static loads, e.g. as main sail and genoa halyards, as well as for steering line systems and afterguys. But it’s important to remember that the fibre is not resistant to UV rays and therefore it isn’t particularly suitable to be used without cover, unless in specific cases protected from the light or if replacements are constantly planned.


  • Choose a fiber

STEP 2 - Choose a cover

For each rope of Racing and Performance Line, it's possible to choose between a VectranŽ [PU] single braid  or a double braid composed by a VectranŽ [PU] core and a protection cover, among the six available.
