The 8 strand twist mix construction allows a blend of the Dyneema® and polyester fibres to inherit each others properties. Low extension is offered through the Dyneema® while polyester provides grip.

This competition winning Dinghy sheet rope and performance control line has an innocent appearance, but with its construction of Dyneema® SK75 and easy handling high tenacity polyester fibres in a "Twistmix" format, this rope takes a lot of beating. Easily spliced with a good retained break load, OLYMPIK Dyneema® is the first choice for dinghy control lines where grip and strength is paramount. OLYMPIK is well suited to single and double handed classes as well as windsurfers and keel boats.
