GRAND PRIX SERIES
GRAND PRIX SERIES GRAND PRIX SERIES
The Grand Prix Series uses the highest performance materials such as Dyneema ® SK99, Zylon ® , Technora ® , Kevlar ® Teflon ® and Zyex ® . These materials offer attributes to covers and cores such as higher strength, improved abrasion resistance, better thermal properties, higher (or lower) friction and improved winch handling properties. Finally, a wide variety of customisations including core inserts, tapered ropes and hoist markers are available along with rigging extras such as chafe cover and ArmourCoat. The reason Marlow’s Grand Prix Series ropes work so well and are so respected is that we listen to the feedback and needs of our Grand Prix Riggers and their customers – the race boat captains and crews. When combined with our attention to detail and passion for excellence, Marlow’s Grand Prix Series ropes deliver reliable, race winning performance.
We worked with Marlow throughout 2019 and we were really pleased with the products and the service. In a race like the Vendee Globe you are looking for quality, durability and reliability and we have been really happy with all these elements in Marlow’s products to date. We are really pleased to have partnered with Marlow for our Vendee 2020 ambitions and we are looking forward to being back on the water in April 2020 to test our new ropes and new foils. BORIS HERRMANN, SKIPPER FOR TEAM MALIZIA Marlow’s Grand Prix Series has revolutionised the way high performance running rigging is specified and ordered. Imitated by many, but matched by none, the Grand Prix Series was developed and is continuously improved through our long experience with high performance race teams and feedback from our global network of specialist Grand Prix Riggers.
