From the folks who invented ball-bearing blocks, the 75mm Carbo Air® line of blocks boasts an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Long-glass reinforced engineered nylon sheaves and cheeks make them 30 percent lighter and 60 percent stronger and generally less expensive than equivalent conventional blocks.
The 75mm Carbo Air® Blocks are the only all-plastic blocks with a safe working load of more than 1,200 lbs. Because of the large-diameter sheaves and fitted ball races, they release easily under load and keep weight to a minimum. Perfect for mainsheet systems on racing boats and cruisers for better performance at a reasonable price. Recipient of both the Dame Award and Sail Magazine's Freeman-Pittman Award for innovation.
