GOLD-MEDAL WINNING LINES: POWERING TEAM GB’S 49ERS TO VICTORY

The Tokyo 2021 Olympics saw gold medals secured through the skill, determination and dedication of its athletes, combined with their trusted equipment. For the winning 49er team Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell, Marlow’s Excel Elite 3 played a crucial role in their spectacular victory. 

Excel Elite 3 features a high-performance core made from bio-based Dyneema® SK99. This material has exceptional high-strength giving the option to downsize the diameter leading to lighter weight.  Important characteristics that really matter when you are racing at an Olympic standard. The Dyneema® and Technora ® blended cover provides ultimate abrasion resistance, heat resistance and grip – ideal for halyards, control lines and sheets.

In choosing Excel Elite 3, Fletcher and Bithell put their trust in Marlow Ropes and through a combination of cutting-edge rope technology, passion and talent resulted in their historic gold medal performance.
