Larger Spectra Brait is a plaited Honeywell Spectra® fiber. Spectra® is one of the strongest fibers known and is very low elongating. The geometry of the plaited Spectra® allows more substantial dynamic loads to be imparted on the rope without compromising its longevity.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope’s rated working load constitute hazardous shock load and would void the normal working-load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and the safe use of rope.
