High performance Sports Equipment

Reduce weight and increase performance

Dyneema® composites are increasingly indispensable in creating high-strength lightweight fabrics. By leveraging our proven expertise and by using Dyneema® fabrics can help industry innovators improve equipment specs by saving weight and increasing durability.

World champion hand cyclist Laura de Vaan's drive for performance.

With her new seat made with Dyneema® Carbon hybrid composites she has the confidence to push herself all the way. The seat and the fork are a unified unit, and it is much easier to form into an aerodynamic shape. “When I first used it in Rio it felt solid on the road. I pointed it and it went in that direction. Wind was not an influence. And I knew it was impossible to break.”

ZPacks: helping you go above and beyond

ZPacks' goal is to make every adventure amazing by providing customers with the best possible gear. Dyneema® Composite fabric is central to achieving this.

The extremely high tensile strength and very low stretch of Dyneema® fabrics make them ideal for ZPacks' high performance tents, tarps, and backpacks.

Live simply is the philosophy behind Yama Mountain Gear. But simple doesn’t mean low tech. The company’s ultimate tents and tarps are made with Dyneema® Composite fabric. Lighter and stronger than Silicon Impregnated Nylon, the traditional ultra-light favorite, Dyneema® Composite fabric is also 100% rainproof and low-stretch, to resist sagging when daytime temperatures turn to night-time ones.

Eagles Nest Outfitters: chill out wherever, whenever

When the team at Eagles Nest Outfitters set out to create the industry’s lightest hammock, they knew they would need some serious lightweight materials. Not just light, but strong, too. The Sub 7 Hammock uses Dyneema® for the all-important line and suspension system, weighs next to nothing, yet is strong enough to ensure you won’t wake up on the ground.  

Thinner and more accurate fishing lines that last

Beyond location, angling is all about strength, sensitivity, and flexibility. Fishing lines made with Dyneema® last longer despite being thinner. In fact, at up to half the thickness of a nylon fishing line of the same strength, lines made with Dyneema® are the thinnest available. Which means fishermen can cast further and more accurately.
