Cabrinha is proud to announce a major shift towards a more sustainable manufacturing process with a switch to Bio-based Dyneema® in all control systems. Bio-based Dyneema® fiber boasts the exact same performance as conventional Dyneema® with a carbon footprint that is 90% lower than generic HMPE fiber. As well as its extraordinary strength, bio-based Dyneema® excels in cut and abrasion resistance and has a high resistance to UV, a crucial benefit for its use in flying lines. So, whatever style you choose to ride, ride with the confidence and trust in a product that lessens your footprint, not your performance.
Bio-based Dyneema® has the lowest carbon footprint per unit strength compared to other synthetic fibers, while maintaining the same performance, strength and longevity as conventional Dyneema®.
Compared to other, generic HMPE fibers, bi-based Dyneema® emits 29 tonnes less CO2 per metric ton of fiber produced. This is the equivalent CO2 released by charging 3.7 million smartphones, or the amount of CO2 absorbed by growing 480 tree seedlings for 10 years.
