Used worldwide on boats from 20'–140' in events from America's Cup, Key West Race Week and everything in between! The smooth foil shape in this one-piece headstay system does not disturb airflow along the luff. Superbly engineered independent grooves ensure that loads affecting one groove don't affect or distort the other.
A special prefeeder uses two oversized silicon bronze rollers to smooth out the sail luff on the way up, preventing jams and eliminating the need for the foredeck crew to hand-feed the sail. The extrusion is strong, durable and flexible. The complete system includes extrusion, feeder, prefeeder, top cap and extension. Installs easily over your existing headstay. Larger sizes available through Special Order.
