Hyperlite set a new standard for wake rope technology, ensuring flotation at all times and smooth running through your hands during a pick up. This flotation is accomplished with the Silicone Cable Coating found on our Hyperlite 70' Silicone X-Line ropes. Hyperlite Team Riders found that the Silicone Coating provides a smoother feel as the line runs through your hands, which was an added bonus as the primary goal was creating a fully floating mainline. The Silicone Cable Coating ensures a buoyant line visible at all times. Simply put - Our Lines Float!
