LIROS Control XTR
Cover: 32plait Blended 50/50 Technora/high tenacity Polyester
Core: Super prestretched and coated 12 strand braided Dyneema SK99 - 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 LIROS manufacturing process produces a balanced braid on braid construction with consistency second to none
LIROS Manufacturing: meticulous attention to exacting standards ~ decades of experience ~ modern factory with state of the art, computer programmed twisting and braiding machinery
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
