A selection of shockcord and elastic ropes in various colours and diameters.

Shockcord has many different names include bungee rope, elastic bungee cord, elastic rope, bungee rope and more. Essentially these are ropes with elastic in the centre and a hardwearing cover.

Shockcord has a number of useful applications, not only in sailing but also for:

  • Canoes and kayaks
  • Tarpaulins and trampolines
  • Securing covers

Sailing Chandlery now also stock dyneema shockcord where the inside is elastic but with a stronger, hardwearing dyneema cover. This is ideal for trapeze and control line take ups.
