Special thermal procedure which allows to maximise efficiency and strength of Dyneema® ropes. This heat-setting process consists in heating up the rope at high temperature and prestretching it to perfectly balance fibres’ tensions. As a result of this process, rope strength and modulus are increased by around 15% while rope diameter is reduced by 10%.
Special polyurethane coating treatment realized by Gottifredi Maffioli to enhance abrasion resistance and make splicing easier.
Innovative technology developed by Gottifredi Maffioli to fulfil the demanding expectations of Olympic Classes sailors, which combines the excellent mechanical properties of Dyneema® and the effective and comfortable grip of particular non-slip fibre. Thanks to our exclusive production process, products of the “Swift” family are the perfect synthesis of lightness, strength, durability and comfort
Special protection covers made with a non-slip fibre, which are characterized by good abrasion resistance and excellent grip for a comfortable handling. This type of covers are particularly suitable for halyard or control lines.
Thanks to this option, on demand, you can customise your lines selecting your favourite design and the combination of colours which fits best the style of your boat.
Gottifredi Maffioli has been the first to introduce melange style in ropes: since over 10 yeas, the very distinguishing mottled colours of Gottifredi Maffioli lines, have become a synonymous for style, quality and high performance for the market.
Winch guard is a special coating treatment developed by Gottifredi Maffioli to enhance the characteristics of abrasion resistance of the lines. In addition to a careful selection of heat resistance materials for protection covers, this treatment delivers an optimal performance on winches.
GM SHARK TECH
Under extreme conditions, when you need the highest resistance to both heat and abrasion, without compromising a smooth and precise control even under very high loads, GM SHARKTECH is the perfect solution. Developed by Gottifredi Maffioli for the most competitive America’s Cup teams, GM SHARKTECH combines the use of Zylon® for protection covers with the innovative WINCH GUARD treatment, it represents the performance benchmark for the most severely abused ropes in high end competition.
TPR products offer you the chance to easily strip and taper your lines, allowing great weight savings on sheets and control lines without compromising on comfort and ease of handling. The cores of these products are studied to retain a good durability when stripped.
This innovative technology has been developed by Gottifredi Maffioli to fulfill the demanding expectation of the Olympic classes sailors the combination of a special mix of very light fibers with a special construction technology delivers a significantly improvement in terms of reduction of water absorption and an incredible lightness.
