Gleistein goes for Gold in Rio with the Danish Olympic Sailing Team

Exclusive rope supplier for winning high-tech regatta lines

Gleistein Ropes is going for Gold when the 2016 Olympics kick off in Rio today. As the Exclusive Rope Supplier to the entire Danish Olympic Sailing Team, Gleistein is on board with high-tech rigging solutions that will help the team get the decisive edge over its competitors. Throughout the sponsorship deal, which was announced at boot Düsseldorf in 2014, Gleistein has worked closely together with Dansk Sejlunion to develop rigging that will help the team onto the podium. Among the innovations to emerge from the partnership was an extremely lightweight 6mm RunnerTwin line featuring an exceptionally thin triple-fibre high-performance cover for first-class grip and ultimate handling. With great experiences and results in the lead-up, Gleistein Ropes and the Danish Olympic Sailing Team are certainly ready for Rio and look forward to a great championship…and beyond!
