Diving in

Dyneema® brings top-tier performance to watersport applications that demand lightweight strength.

Wings – Made from Dyneema® Composite Fabric for maximum durability, waterproofing, lightness, and rigidity.

Lines – Dyneema® SK99 fiber is used to create lightweight, flexible, ultra-strong lines that float on water and don’t have to be replaced regularly.

Boards – A blend of carbon fiber and Dyneema® delivers lightweight performance, immense strength, and best-in-class durability.

For kites with that flying feeling

Whether you’re using a twin-tip board (kiteboarding) or a directional board (kitesurfing), lightness and rigidity are essential performance characteristics for kites – also known as wings. Dyneema® Composite Fabric (DCF) delivers on both counts, offering incredible strength and durability at a weight that allows for greater control, agility, and safety on the water.

And lightweight strength is just the start. DCF is also highly resistant to abrasion, UV radiation, and moisture, supporting the creation of wings that can handle repeated use in all weather conditions. What’s more, our composite fabrics’ exceptional durability significantly extends the lifespan of equipment, reducing the frequency of replacements and bringing down costs over time. For high-performance wings that just don’t quit, Dyneema® is as dependable as it gets.

Dyneema® Composite Fabric

With the world’s strongest fiber™ laid in a crisscross pattern, DCF can be tailored and optimized for properties like strength, stretch, weight, and minimum thickness. In fact, there’s no limit to the number of different fiber choices and combinations available.

Ultra-thin lines with high load capacity

When it comes to lines and ties for the watersports world, there’s one solution that rises above the rest: Dyneema® SK99 fiber. Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, is ideal for making the lines and ties that connect kites with their control bar, with a high load capacity, ultra-thin diameter, and ability to float on water with no water absorption.

Dyneema®-based ties and lines are resistant to abrasion and UV radiation along, making them more durable than the competition, even when lines get crossed. Their low stretch means you need fewer adjustments and less frequent replacement. And they’re quick and easy to splice, freeing up more time that can be spent enjoying the elements.

Dyneema® SK99 fiber

The strongest Dyneema® fiber grade, this is the ideal lightweight, low-creep, low-elongation solution for high-performance watersports lines and ties.

Lightweight boards that go the distance

For the strongest, lightest boards in watersports, designers reinforce the carbon structure with Dyneema®.

Ultra-light Dyneema® in a windsurfing, kitesurfing, or kiteboarding board makes it easier to cut against the power of the kite or soar high into the air. And once you’ve experienced these boards’ vibration-absorbing dynamics, there’s no going back to boards made with other materials.   

Carbon with Dyneema®

Dyneema® Carbon represents a leap in the evolution of carbon. By adding world’s strongest fiber to carbon, there’s a significant improvement in a board’s weight and impact resistance.

Ride the crest of the wave with Dyneema®

Just like reaching an elite sporting level, designing top-quality watersports gear takes serious hard work and determination. But with the support of our Dyneema® experts, your design and manufacturing journey will be as smooth and successful as possible. 

Our in-house R&D, aerodynamics, and textile technologies engineers work closely together with manufacturers to integrate Dyneema® fibers into high-performance gear for watersports applications, overcoming any design hurdles along the way and ensuring the finished product checks all the right performance boxes. And we’re always on the lookout for the next wave of innovation, pushing the boundaries of material science to further enhance the strength, lightweighting, and other key performance characteristics that set Dyneema® apart.

Enjoy the elements more sustainably

Wind and waves may have immense power – but that doesn’t mean our environment doesn’t also need protection. With the lowest carbon footprint per unit strength of all high-performance fibers, Dyneema® is a more sustainable choice for watersports lines, ties, wings, and boards.

For one thing, 100% of the energy we use to make Dyneema® fiber comes from renewable sources, leading to a significant reduction in carbon emissions compared with generic HMPE. And for another, Dyneema® decreases material use by enabling longer service lifetimes for equipment.

What’s more, by choosing bio-based Dyneema® fiber, manufacturers can reduce their footprint by up to 90% compared with generic HMPE – helping to meet their environmental targets while still benefiting from the same world-leading characteristics of conventional Dyneema®.
