Cyclops Marine is delighted to announce an exciting new collaboration with Arcus Wire Group, a leading supplier of stainless steel wire rope and fittings. We are proud to introduce Arcus Wire Group as our exclusive distributor in Australia as we strive to increase sailing performance for sailors of all levels.

With nearly 60 years' experience, Arcus Wire Group is an industry leader in the supply of quality wire rope and hardware solutions for the marine, industrial, and architectural sectors.

Now, thanks to our partnership, their top-of-the-range hamma® rigging solutions can be paired with cutting edge Cyclops sensor technology that delivers optimal performance - empowering sailors everywhere to achieve their goals and push the boundaries.

At the core of this collaboration lies our cutting-edge wireless load sensor technology, which has changed the game for competitive sailors around the world. Widely used by the leading offshore, America's Cup, and Olympic racing teams, to weekend dinghy sailors, the easy-to-install technology delivers continuous, wireless monitoring of rig and sail loads-empowering sailors to hit fast, repeatable settings and excel in all conditions.

Cyclops data is displayed via your existing onboard electronics and a mobile app and is continuously logged for post-sail analysis and improvement.

Cyclops has already made a big splash in Australia, helping the likes of overall Sydney to Hobart winners 'Celestial' and 'Ichi Ban' sail to victory, as well as being used by long-time line honours contenders 'Wild Oats' and 'LawConnect', and by the entire podium of the Two-Handed Division of Australia's premier offshore event in 2022!

As well as delivering superior performance power, Cyclops allows you to keep a close eye on loading limits - ensuring your rig never exceeds the total load recommended by manufacturers. This has given rise to safety applications which have made a particular impact in the performance catamaran space - where owners want to sail fast with the comfort of visual cues to depower the rig to avoid costly, dangerous accidents.

Arcus Wire Group prides itself on knowledge, quality, and customer service, making them a trusted partner across the industry and the perfect fit for our revolutionary wireless load sensors.

"This collaboration sets the stage for a future of innovation, safety, and unparalleled sailing performance. Together, Cyclops Marine and Arcus Wire Group can elevate rigging systems across Australasia." - David Sheady, Ceo, Arcus Wire Group

As our new exclusive distributor, Arcus Wire Group will play a crucial role in empowering sailors across Australia to access our state-of-the-art technology and achieve optimal performance and safety on the water.

"We are thrilled about this exclusive partnership and look forward to empowering more and more sailors to achieve their goals with Arcus Wire Group by our side." - Ian "Chips" Howarth, CEO, Cyclops Marine

An extensive range of Cyclops devices and accessories is now available from Arcus Wire Group. For further information and trade enquiries, please reach out to the Arcus Wire Group team on 1800 272 879, email or via
