Synthetic Winch Rope has a higher breaking strength than that of steel cable but weighs far less. It won't bind up or develop those sharp frays that give nasty slivers. It doesn't conduct electricity or heat, so it won't freeze your hands in winter. It won't rust, doesn't kink, doesn't recoil, and doesn't stretch. It is a MUST HAVE for any serious off-road rider!
AmSteel®-Blue has a patented coating called Samthane which protects the cable from damage - so its critical to get the AmSteel®-Blue brand - other brands do not have this coating.
NOTE: An aluminum hawse fairlead should be used with synthetic cable - NOT a roller fairlead.
