Lewmar's high performance Control Blocks
are extremely lightweight and have
unprecedented load bearing capacity. The
weight advantage comes from a combination
of MRT (Metal Replacement Technology) and
stainless steel central race and balls. Long
Fibre Technology provides you with
exceptional strength and durability. Plus, the
open design allows you to easily flush out
sand and salt, which keeps maintenance
simple and your entire operation running a lot
Lewmar's second generation racing blocks,
use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to minimise
material where it's not needed and reinforce
the load paths where it is needed. Lewmar's have
moved this generation of racing blocks to
whole new level.
These blocks are specifically designed for
hand held loads, they achieve maximum
efficiency at maximum hand load.
• Very High Strength.
• Impact Resistant.
• Reduced Friction.
• Easy Maintenance.
• Optimised for hand control.
• High Loads.
• Extreme high strength-to-weight ratios.
• Sheaves designed to maximise the Torlon
• Can be webbed in place in both planes.
Ball bearing blocks are typically used
for medium and dynamic loads in: Control line applications, mainsail sheets for dinghies and keelboats, spinnaker sheets, barber haulers, genoa sheets, dinghy applications.
