Rope made of natural fibers, it has performance and flexibility of use lower than 3E - Poly rope.
However, it has some characteristics that keep it current and in various cases preferable for the realization of light Manual fly facilities.
In fact, it has a lower extensibility than polyester ropes, which makes the action of traction on the load more immediate.
The roughness of the hemp fiber also improves grip and makes it more manageable than man-made fiber ropes.
Furthermore, although it is not fireproof, it burns with some difficulty and tends to self-extinguish.
