Gottifredi Maffioli is strongly committed in providing all its customers the most innovative and best performing ropes available on the market, giving racers constant access to the most advanced technologies and materials. After being tested in world premiere by Oracle Team USA, winner of the 34th America's Cup, the new Dyneema® SK99, the strongest fiber ever made by DSM, is now available to the market, opening a new era in high performance rigging.
