Racefurler Product Features
LOCKING MECHANISM: Our Racefurlers have a unique manual locking mechanism, allowing them to free spin, or ratchet in each direction. Sails can be hoisted and the unfurl held. When ready, release the lock and sheet on. This can be string operated for loose luff sails set off a bowsprit, or operated by hand for sails set back from the bow. Perfect for staysails.
LONG LUFF: Our tack attachment options and head swivels are low-profile allowing sailmakers to maximise luff lengths for optimum power.
FLEXIBLE ROPE GUARD: Our flexible rope guard allows the furling line to be easily stripped from the furling drum and just as easily re-fitted. Just pefect for the rapid deployment of a loose luff sail.
HIGH LOAD TORSIONAL BEARINGS: Despite the direct line of the furling stay, swivels and furlers have to absorb a lot of off-axis movement. KZ Racefurlers have high load torsional bearings to eliminate friction and maximise efficiency.
FAST PIN: KZ Racefurlers offer a range of standard and custom fast pin options. Many of our customers have their own preferences.
CUSTOM SOLUTIONS: KZ Racefurlers come with a range of attachment options from toggles to fit a standard headstay tang to non-rotating Tylaska clips, 2:1 and 3:1 friction sheaves and side-opening snatch blocks. The options are endless.
