All Nordkyn ganglines are made of hollow braid polyethylene, tougher and more flexible than polypropylene. They behave better in extreme cold, stretch less, and are more abrasion resistant. Heavy duty 3/4" bronze snaps come on all tugs, with lighter 1/2" snaps on necklines. All snaps are easily replaced on the trail. Center, shock, and snublines are 3/8" ; tuglines and necklines are 1/4".
The centerline comes in one color with neck and tuglines in a contrasting color. It really does save time in a tangle. Each tugline is removable on the trail, for immediate replacement. Each two-dog section within the gangline can also be easily removed, to change the number of dogs or replace damaged lines. Necklines may be replaced without using any tools.
A gangline is the assembled lines which connect sled dogs to the sled. These lines consist of a number of component parts including a shock, a gangline section and the tug lines. These lines can also be used for running multiple dogs in a variety of activities including dryland mushing, dog scootering, bikejoring, and skijoring.
