PBO-Zylon:
Light, safe and durable

Dry constructed Armare PBO cables have a 50% higher safety ratio than ROD cables and their weight reduction reaches 80%. The PBO cable is lighter and safer even when compared to other types of composite rigging. The adoption of PBO textile rigging provides different benefits to the performance of any kind of sail boat.

TOP performance

Composite cables allow better wind ward and quicker manoeuvres. Using them, the boat pitches less against the weaves, and sails lighter, faster and more powerful. Armare obtains cables with minimum diameters and consequent advantage in the decrease of windage, thanks to the non-use of resin in the construction of cables and the optimization of the production process.

Increased stability

The weight of textile rigging is definitely lower than the weight of ROD. This weight reduction is even more evident in the up section of the stay, at two thirds of its length. The consequence is a clear reduction of the pitch and a considerable decrease of the luff banding.

Easy to install and maintain

With the support of our technicians, the replacement of steel cable with textile standing rigging can also be performed in retrofit on any yacht. The durability of composite cables is long and their maintenance is simple and rapid. Any substitution can be easily done in short time.
