Ball Bearing Orbit Blocks™ boast the highest strength-to-weight ratio available. This is achieved through all-composite reinforced polymer materials and multiple attachment options. Their precision design provides the optimum number of ball bearings for minimum friction while weight reduction is achieved through the use of fibre-reinforced composites in the block head, cleat arms and beckets.
• Highest working load in its class.
• Secure, versatile and secure attachement.
• Low profile and compact.
• Ultra low profile thru-sheave becket.
• Low friction 2-stage ball bearing system provides consistent performance over the full working load range.
• Sheave: High compression strength carbon black Acetal.
• Ball Bearings: High compression strength Acetal.
• Frame/Cheeks: Toughened, glass fibre reinforced Nylon.
• Link: UV stabilised, multi-strand impregnated SK75 Dyneema®.
Mainsheet systems and spinnaker sheets on dinghies to 5 m (16 ft), halyard, vang and backstay applications on boats to 5 m (16 ft), control line applications on larger yachts.
