Winchlines for off-road vehicle winches (QUAD, side-by-side, 4x4, etc.) are made from Dyneema SK-75 synthetic fibers. Performance Polyethylene (HPPE) fibers are braided to form a twelve (12) strand hollow core cable that replaces steel wire of equivalent diameter while being nine (9) times lighter!
ADVANTAGES: They do not deform; they do not freeze; they do not make pigtails; they do not hurt hands; they are easy to maneuver and repair.
Research conducted by the FP Innovations Research Institute has shown that these cables can last longer than steel cables. Once you have tried this type of cable, you will never want to use steel cables again. Note: Do not use with our portable capstan winches.
Also, when installing the cable, it is recommended to polish all winch surfaces to remove any sharp edges that may come in contact with the new cable.
