LIROS Control XTR (02224)
Cover: Blended 32plait Technora/Polyester - exceptional grip, heat resilience, shape retention and abrasion resistance
Core: Super prestretched and coated braided Dyneema SK99, Liros Heat stretch system, Liros Coating System for extra wear and UV protection - the strongest, lowest stretch dyneema fibre
LIROS Control XTR Plus Factors:
- Very good rope to handle in testing conditions
- Exceptional holding power - LIROS Grip Factor 10 - Grip Factor is expected to improve with use
- Ultimate wear and heat resistance
- Superb solid shape retention under racing loads
- All round excellence around winches and through clutches
- Very high tensile load capacity coupled with minimal stretch - Liros Heat Stretch System - <1.0% at working load
- Spliceable - advanced core dependent splice
- Liros Coating System - enhanced wear resistance, UV protection and water impermeability on exposed core
- Excellent cover to core power transference
- Non kinking, balanced braiding
- Runs freely through blocks and sheaves
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%.
The Technora/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.
