EXPEDITION.LIGHT BEYOND THE FORM
DENT DU GÉANT
We are inspired by nature, in fact it has guided us in the realization of E.L Expedition-Light. The concept started from the environment for which it was designed, the peaks. Parbat® dedicates all its resources to the imagination and to the creation of products that allow a close link between nature and high-tech materials. Each product designed by Parbat is the key to a unique experience
Expedition Light - E.l
With the EL line, Parbat® has taken the concept of "light and fast" beyond the highest levels. This range has been designed in response to the extremely demanding specifications of light and fast style athletes during alpine style ascents. EL is a compendium of technology. Designed entirely in Dyneema®, it is the radical tool par excellence.
MORE THAN A FIBER
Dyneema® Composite fabrics take strength and durability to new highs. Dyneema® composites significantly increase tear, puncture and abrasion performance over 500D nylon, reducing weight and bulk. They can also be adapted and optimized for strength, elongation, weight and transparency in general and at specific points or along predetermined load paths.
THE SECRET OF DYNEEMA®
DSM's super strong ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fiber under the Dyneema® brand offers maximum strength with minimum weight.
Dyneema® fiber is produced in a patented gel spinning process in which the fibers are stretched, heated, stretched and cooled. Stretching and spinning lead to molecular alignment, high crystallization and low density. Dyneema® has extremely long molecular chains that transfer the load more effectively to the supporting structure of the polymer. So it is stronger with the same weight or lighter with the same strength than the alternatives.
Dyneema® fiber is 15 times stronger than steel for the same weight, with a tensile strength of up to 43 cN / dtex. In addition to its extraordinary strength, Dyneema® excels in resistance to cuts and abrasion and has a high resistance to chemicals and UV rays.
