Superbraid

Donaghys Superbraid is a high performance yacht braid developed through exhaustive testing on super yachts, Jules Verne, The Race, Whitbread, Volvo Ocean Race, America’s Cup, IOR, IMS, IMR and Olympic yachts.  This development programme has seen subtle but significant changes to Superbraid as fibre technology and manufacturing techniques improve. Primarily designed for use on sailboats, Superbraid’s versatility and advantages over traditional wire rope have seen an increase in its use across a broad range of applications.
