Features

LIROS Control XTR is the ultimate high performance solution for all running rigging applications including Sheets, Halyards and Control Lines

LIROS Control XTR (article 02224) Construction:

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 Facts, Features and 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
  • Taperable
  • 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 which 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
