The rope end fitting developed by Werner Sobek Design was optimised according to the principles of lightweight construction: Minimisation of stress concentrations as well as recessing of areas subject to little stress. In addition, the system was made more flexible through the interchangeability of individual parts.
A unique feature of the rope end fitting developed by Werner Sobek Design is the possibility of applying the rope pretension through a specially developed pretensioning device that engages in the stress relief openings of the fork fitting.
