Lewmar Racing Blocks
Lewmar Racing Blocks are designed to achieve the best strength-to-weight ratio within legal race limits. These sailboat blocks feature
alloy cheeks and composite sheaves which run on dual Delrin ball races. Lewmar makes these blocks available in a range of sizes and configurations
to suit a variety of yachts.
Racing Block Features:
3 in 1 Head
Delrin Thrust Balls
Ratchet fiddle blocks feature alloy ratchet sheaves and recessed ratchet lever
Lewmar HTX Blocks
The Lewmar HTX Block range is the result of years of design and manufacturing experience, combined with collaboration with boat
builders, designers, and sailors. Drawing upon the design of the racing range of sailboat blocks, the HTX blocks are constructed
from a minimal number of alloy parts, providing enhanced reliability.
HTX Block Features:
High load capacity and large line size
Side thrust ball bearings
Head design inspired by Lewmar racing range with swivel head mechanism locking through a grub screw
Lewmar Control Blocks
Lewmar ball-bearing Control Blocks are ideal for use with hand-held loads on cruising or racing sailboats. These sailing and yachting blocks
feature lightweight, performance load-bearing capacity. Lewmar's MRT (Metal Replacement Technology) and a stainless steel central race and balls provide a
weight advantage, while Long Fibre Technology offers exceptional strength and durability. The open design allows sand and salt to be flushed out easily, keeping
Control Block Features:
Very High Strength
Optimised for hand control
Control Block Applications:
Ball-bearing blocks are typically used for medium and dynamic loads in:
Control line applications
Mainsheet systems for dinghies and keelboats
Spinnaker sheets, barber haulers
Dinghies and sportboats
Lewmar Synchro Blocks
Lewmar synchro blocks are engineered for speed, efficiency and superior handling. These blocks suit a range of purposes from performance cruising
yachts to specific high-load low-movement applications on racing sailboats. Lewmar uses a combination of scientifically optimised
block geometry, a Free-Spin bearing and self-aligning head to reduce friction and increase efficiency by up to 40% over budget
blocks on mainsheet systems.
Each component is perfectly synchronised with the movement of the rope, providing you with an easier, smoother transfer of power
from deck to sail and less wear on your rope.
Synchro Block Features:
Stainless steel strap for improved strength and longer service life
Stiff glass fibre reinforced cheeks to prevent lines from wedging
Innovative design with "tool-free" sliding swivel locking mechanism
Synchro Block Applications:
Plain bearing blocks are typically used for heavy and static loads in:
Mast foot blocks
