DynIce Dux is a heat-set 12 strand synthetic fibre Dyneema® line which, according to Hampidjan, outperforms other Dyneema® SK75, SK78 and SK99 versions.
The Hampidjan special engineering process removes all the constructional elongation during manufacture making it much stronger while delivering less stretch and creep.

Hampidjan have named this rope Dux because it loosely translates from Latin to mean the top of the class.

DynIce Dux is manufactured by Hampidjan Yachting Ropes, a forward thinking rope production company with a focus firmly on relentless product development, founded in Iceland in 1934.

The outstanding performance of DynIce Dux is the result of unrelenting development by the Hampidjan design and engineering team.
DynIce Dux has rapidly become the logical choice for sailboat rigging professionals.

Hampidjan Fibre Rigging Advisory

For use as a replacement for wire standing rigging, Dynice Dux must be specified so that the working load is less than 20% of the breaking strain of the line to eliminate creep completely.
This generally means that the DynIce Dux will be a larger diameter than the wire it replaces.
