Warn Synthetic Winch Rope

WARN engineers faced a challenge when they set out to develop a synthetic rope for winching. The rope had to be light weight, durable and easy to handle-but it also needed to maintain high tensile strength over a wide range of temperatures.

Warn Synthetic RopeWhat they came up with is a unique design that provides the optimal balance of performance characteristics needed by rock crawlers and owners of advanced trail rigs. The 100' WARN Synthetic Rope combines the best attributes of two types of high-performance fibers, woven into one rope. The first 30 feet of rope wound nearest the drum is made of a liquid crystal polymer fiber that provides excellent strength and bending properties over a wide range of temperatures. The remaining 70 feet of rope, from the hook back, is woven from another unique polyethylene fiber that exhibits superior handling and abrasion resistance.

"We've made a synthetic rope design that lives up to the standards of performance and quality demanded of the Warn winch," said Thomas Giacomini, Chief Operating Officer for Warn Industries. "Now, crawlers and trail riggers can tackle practically any obstacle confidently, with less winch weight, and get an added jump on the competition."

A rugged hook-with 360-degree swivel and thimble-comes standard, along with a Hawse fairlead and "Ballistic Nylon" sliding sleeve that provides extra protection against abrasion and wear. Designed for use on winches with rated capabilities of 9500 lbs. or less.
