LIROS Racer Plus Factors:

  • Very low stretch < 1.5% at working load
  • High load capacity
  • Excellent smooth handling
  • Non kinking, balanced braiding
  • Excellent holding power in cleats and clutches
  • Good Grip around winches
  • Solid shape retention around winches - firm, compact braid construction doesn't flatten
  • Runs freely through blocks and sheaves
  • Spliceable - advanced core dependent splice
  • LIROS-Heat-Stretch-System
  • LIROS Coating System

LIROS-Heat-Stretch-System - unique LIROS pre-stretching process, calibrated under exacting temperature and tension conditions, designed to minimise stretch and enhance performance.

LIROS Coating System - polyurethane impregnation process improves resistance to abrasion and protects against UV damage by up to 50%.

N.B. The inner traction layer is not load bearing and a certain amount is removed as part of the core dependent splice.

The Polyester cover can be permanently removed to produce a cover stripped Dyneema core only loop splice.

Snapshackles can then be retrofitted/changed over, attached using a simple a cow hitch - pass the loop through the eye of the shackle, over the top and back down to the rope end
