Premium Shock Cord 1/4″ Black
Compared to standard shock cord, this marine-grade, superior quality black shock cord is stiffer and its durable, UV-stabilized yarn cover offers more UV-resistance. The high-strength shock cord is constructed of pure latex ribbon rubber covered with UV-stabilized yarn to produce a bungee cord with good chemical resistance and weather-ability.
Use 3/16″ or 1/4″ for trapeze shock cords. Hobie Cat® uses #RS014BLK for 1/4″ bungee cord.
1/4″ shockcord is primarily used for trapeze shock cord. The Hobie 16 use 4 x 8′ sections for the trap shock cord, and the Hobie 17 uses one 12′ section for the trap shock cord.
Nacra rudder bungees: Factory spec is 4′ of 1/4″ shock cord but it is a common upgrade to use 5/16″
