14 - Backstay (runner)
The backstay takes the total load, so without gear. These lines should have high strength and low elongation. We recommend a single braid Dyneema® SK78 (our D-core) or Stirotex® (S-Core) in this case for runners.
D-Core 78SKU: PRR450Application: Control line
This rope, completely made of Dyneema® SK78 (12 strands coated) fibers, is extremely strong, has low elongation and low weight. The coating ensures UV resistance and better abrasion resistance. This general purpose rope is ideal for e.g. loops, shackles, rigging, boom vang, outhaul and cunningham. It is also very good for kite surfing lines. Learn More
