ULTRA-PERFORMANCE FABRICS AND MATERIALS

For Spectra Fiber, the material world is one of extreme endurance and high performance when everything is hanging in the balance.

At 15 times the strength of steel, Spectra Fiber boasts one of the
highest strength-to-weight ratios available. Yet it is light enough to
give elite performers like the crew of the America’s Cup
the competitive edge they need to sail into victory.

LIGHTER

Sometimes you can gain an extra second by losing an extra ounce. Ultra-lightweight Spectra Fiber gives elite performers the extra edge they need to win.

LONGER

The elements can really cause wear and tear on your gear. Abrasion- and tear-resistant Spectra Fiber keeps going as long as you do.

STRONGER

Spectra Fiber is 15 times stronger than steel, and even tougher to beat for comfort and protection on any playing field.
