Our booth at the METS 2017 featured three main highlights: our new ropes and products for sailing and yachting, our new website, and a meeting for and with our distributors.
There have been significant changes, especially with regard to our product portfolio. Here is a concise rundown of our new products for 2018:
Admiral 7000 and Admiral 5000 now come in additional fresh colors. Our successful Globe line was upgraded yet again, now featuring Globe 5000 MK3 with improved coating to prevent core-cover slippage.
Our single-braid special purpose ropes "STS Ocean 5000" and "Ocean STAT20" are now also available as thinner 2 mm diameter versions.
The successful Sirius line received a few updates such as new colors on Sirius 1000, Sirius 500, and Sirius 300 ropes. Furthermore, our popular Sirius 500 was upgraded to the brand-new Sirius 550! This rope features an extremely resistant cover and comes in vivid new colors.
Segment: Dinghies and Sports Boats
This segment features most of the product developments for 2018. First and foremost, the Racing Pro that many have been waiting for: a special sheet for all types of use that require grip and control. TEUFELBERGER's high-tech fiber mix ensures minimal stretch and abrasion; exactly what is needed for the latest control settings. This rope is perfectly complemented by 0-Kink (Zero Kink): a brand-new Dyneema® double braid that exhibits zero kinking tendency and is therefore ideal for running sheets. Furthermore, a new product from last season – Coppa 5000 – was developed to include a wider range of colors and two new diameters.
Segment: Mooring Ropes
Newport 8 is this year's newcomer among our mooring ropes. This 8-plait rope is very easy to splice. Stowed, it takes up only 50 % of the volume of a conventional braided/laid rope. In addition, our well-liked Palma Elastic will now also be available in other diameters.
