Grand Prix Racing

All our Grand Prix Racing ropes have been developed in co-operation with professional sailors and are tested on high performance boats. These lines are made with the best possible materials and are suitable for halyards and sheets on boats such as a TP52, Cape 31, Melges 32, Ker 46 and other similar yachts where only the very best is good enough.

What type of cores are used for the Grand Prix Racing Series?

Depending on the application, different cores are chosen. For sheets, this is often a core of Stirotex or Dyneema SK99. For running backstays and backstays, there is a 'Heatset Pre-Stretched' (HPS) core made of Dyneema SK78. Or in the case of Rig Wire 99, a pre-stretched core of Dyneema SK99.

What kind of covers are used in the Grand Prix Racing Series?

In high performance sails, the most important thing is that covers can endure the enormous loads and friction during racing. The PBO cover for instance is suitable for highly loaded backstays and jibsheets. The Race Grip Pro has a cover made of Technora, Stirotex and polyester. This gives the rope a high degree of grip and makes it extremely abrasion-resistant. For sheets, we recommend the TN Racing with Technora. The DX Cup Pro 99 is the ultimate halyard. This rope has a pre-stretched SK99 core and a wear-resistant cover with Technora.
