Soft Braid One Design

Eight soft ropes optimal for use on racing monotypes

Eight different types of ropes designed to maintain an optimal grip in the hand.
Light and flexible, soft braids do not create kinks and do not absorb water. They are ideal for use on monotypes and for making closed-circuit furling lines.

Grip Treatment

This treatment is applied on the cover yarn and gives excellent feeling in the hand and excellent grip on the stopper, making the cover ideal for use on One Design monotypes.

Super Compact Core

The Supercompact Core makes it easy to remove the cover and lightens the finished line, maintaining an incomparable compactness of the braid, ensuring high resistance to abrasion, good breaking load and low elongation.

Super Shape

The exclusive Super Shape construction prevents deformation resulting from repeated passages on the ratchet blocks. The rope maintains perfect roundness and prevents slippage due to the “triangularization” of the sheet.

Soft Braid One Design comparative table

Soft Braid 1
Good quality cover, light core in Polypropylene with low breaking load and medium elongation. Suitable for applications that do not need particular performance and require to use the rope both by bare hand and on stoppers (for example control lines of dinghies and small boats). Being easily spliceable it can also be used as closed circuits on manual furlers.

Soft Braid 2
The introduction of Dyneema® combined with Polyester results in a sliding cover that is more resistant to abrasion, but always with a light weight polypropylene core with low breaking load and average elongation. Aimed at general use, but with frequent runnings, it is a cheaper alternative as a sheet for dinghies and small boats.
