Compact Strand is a high performance wire designed for use as shrouds, backstays and forestays. Its dyformed structure gives it lower stretch and higher breaking strains than standard 1x19 wire for a minimal increase in weight per metre. Ideal for ensuring race settings can be replicated easily on modern dinghy rigs.

2.5mm, 3mm and 4mm are available in 1x7 construction. Petersen Stainless supply wire rope manufactured in Europe from high quality European AISI 316 stainless steel grade 1.4401. The wire is polished in the fully austentic condition to give maximum corrosion resistance. 

Compacted Strand stainless steel wire is designed for shrouds and stays which will be subjected to the extra rigours of committed racing and regatta sailing on dinghies or sportsboats.

The dyformed compact strand structure delivers lower stretch and higher break loads per given diameter than standard 1x19 wire.

The increase in performance comfortably offsets the minimal weight increase.

2.5mm and 3mm diameters are available in 1x7 construction
