Help headsails roll past spreaders for smoother tacks.
Forespar jib rollers are designed to prevent larger headsails from catching on spreader tips. Each jib roller secures to the shroud above or below the spreader to create a rotating wheel to deflect the leech and prevent chafing sail materials. Sold in pairs, these rollers can be installed with the rig standing. Ideal for sailors that frequently use a genoa in light to moderate breeze. May not be compatible at spreaders that support more than one shroud. Reduce chafing the genoa and make tacks smoother by adding jib rollers.
