Alpha Ropes SSR 8mm Racing Sheet

Alpha SSR 8mm Racing Sheet

Alpha SSR 8mm Racing Sheet is a single braid racing sheet that is extremely versatile. It is light, strong, abrasion-resistant and durable. It is popular among Olympic sailors and recreational racers alike. SSR does not absorb water. It has a soft hand feel and does not kink making SSR an great all-around sheeting line.  Comparable to 5/16″ line and great for use as a jib sheet on most Hobie, Nacra and Prindle catamarans, and as a main sheet on the Hobie Wave.

Common uses:

  • Main and jib sheets on beach catamarans, dinghies, sport boats and keelboats.

Hand/Feel:

  • Alpha SSR 8mm Racing Sheet has a very soft feeling, with good grip.

Materials: Dyneema SK78 / Cordura blend

  • Dyneema is its strength and enables it to have a high working load, while the Cordura gives this line soft handle and great cleating characteristics. The Dyneema / Cordura blend does not absorb water, so the line retains its light weight at all times.

Splicing:

  • SSR is a solid braid and is not easy to splice

Stiffness:

  • SSR is a very flexible line that will run thru blocks easily

Specifications

  • Breaking Strength: 2200 kg, 4850 lbs

Uses and Specs for Hobie, Nacra, Prinldle, and Solcat catamarans:  We have indicated the stock lengths of the boats. If you are using a modified sheeting system, with more or less pulleys, the general rule of thumb is add 4 feet for additional pulleys, and subtract 4 feet for fewer.
