Simply brilliant, versatile lightweight, easy to splice and handle

An immensely strong 12 strand synthetic winch rope made from Dyneema® SK78 High Modulus Polyethylene Fibre, manufactured to a very high exact specification set by David Bowyer of GOODWINCH LIMITED


Each of the twelve strands of Dyneema® Bowrope are made up from further strands containing thousands of very fine Dyneema® fibres. This creates an incredibly robust, strong and lightweight safer alternative to wire rope.
Dyneema® Bowrope is size for size the strongest and most durable synthetic winch rope available, at a price you can afford. Dyneema® Bowrope is UV stabilised giving the rope a long, safe working life. The special Dyneema® Bowrope highly visible light blue coating ensures both the rope’s stability and abrasion resistance. After manufacturing the 12 strand rope, it is heat set under tension to ensure durability, uniformity and maximum strength.

Another reason to use Dyneema® Bowrope is that it stretches very little, even under full load, so if in the unlikely event it did break, it won’t flail like a wire rope breaking. A very important safety feature. Dyneema® Bowrope also has excellent bending, bending fatigue properties and is therefore ideally suited for most diameter winch drums and pulley blocks. It does not curl up or kink like wire rope, nor do you get horrible spikes of wire sticking out.
Our Dyneema® Bowrope is also very durable due to its good resistance to both mechanical and environmental attack. It is not affected by oil or water and is just as strong, whether used in dry, wet, cold or humid conditions. During the last 14 years or so, Goodwinch has supplied over 365km of blue Dyneema® Bowrope – well over 12,500 made up ropes.


Dyneema® Bowrope is available in several sizes and lengths for off-road winches and commercial winches fitted to Recovery Vehicles. Dyneema® Bowrope is available from our massive stocks in 5, 6, 8,10, 11, 12 &14mm. 5 & 6mm are used on small winches up to 5,000 lbs, 8mm for 6,000 lb winches and 10mm for 8 or 9,000 lbs models. But our best sellers are most definitely 10 & 11mm used in various winch rope lengths for winches between 9,000 and 12,500 lbs capacity. The 12mm & 14mm sizes are for our commercial mechanical, hydraulic and 16,500 lb winches. All these sizes weigh only about 15% of a similar sized wire rope. Just think of the weight you will save on the front of your vehicle. A saving of between 10 and 20 kgs!
